Well, I had thought to gin up one last creationsim post, but from reading the comments on and from several other anti-creationism (or in some cases, anti-creationIST) blogs, I’ve come to the sobering, if not unsurprising conclusion that as far as “science” is concerned, the battle is over and creationism lost. And anyone who hasn’t yet awoken to this reality is just tilting at windmills, getting all red in the face as they wave their Bible at you and call you a heretic.
Creationism is presumptively defined within the “scientific community” as inherently unscientific. It is a cut and dried, either/or proposition. It’s evolution (and thus science), or creationism/ID and theological posturing. This is the corporate position, and the only acceptable view.
Any attempts to approach the issue from any other viewpoint are met with the sort of indulgent head-patting and amused smiles usually reserved for young children and Alzheimer’s patients.
Hard to fight that.
So, failing that, I return to one of my tried and true favorite pastimes: making fun of the Democrats.
Found this link somewhere. It’s a very disturbing (if not completely unsurprising) example of the moral “mandate” so many Dems feel to circumvent established law if it serves their higher cause.
Read through it. Amazing stuff. Don’t like the results of the vote? Change the results. Heyyyyy, wait a minute. Now wasn’t it the Dems who were screaming the loudest about voter disenfranchisement and a “stolen election?” Hmmm. Funny, that.
