Unintelligent design: Wingnut gasbags talk about evolution
:eyes:

For example:

http://www.tnr.com/doc.mhtml?i=w050704&s=adler070705

Grover Norquist, Americans for Tax Reform

Whether he personally believes in evolution: "I've never understood how an eye evolves."

What he thinks of intelligent design: "Put me down for the intelligent design people."

How evolution should be taught in public schools: "The real problem here is that you shouldn't have government-run schools. ... Given that we have to spend all our time crushing the capital gains tax I don't have much time for this issue."

........

David Frum, American Enterprise Institute and National Review

...

How evolution should be taught in public schools: "I don't believe that anything that offends nine-tenths of the American public should be taught in public schools. ... Christianity is the faith of nine-tenths of the American public. ... I don't believe that public schools should embark on teaching anything that offends Christian principle."



.......

Tucker Carlson, MSNBC


On the possibility that God created man in his present form: "I don't know if He created man in his present form. ... I don't discount it at all. I don't know the answer. I would put it this way: The one thing I feel confident saying I'm certain of is that God created everything there is."

1. Ah yes.
The old "I'm stupid so it didn't happen" argument.

2. Grover
May I suggest reading Richard Dawkins. Just be cause you can't figure it out, does not mean that others have not. Idiot! :eyes:

3. Modern medicine is based on evolutionary biology
Next time these folks come down with a life threatening illness, they should reject any treatment that "offends nine-tenths of the American public".

Now THAT would be natural selection in action!

4. Check this out:
I particularly like the part about "If Dinosaurs Could Talk".

Apparently they would relate their adventures on the ark... chasing dinner, perhaps? "lookout, Noah! ---aaaaaAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!"

7. As ID should be abused, ridiculed, and denied it has no basis in fact.

8. I don't understand how a computer works.
Electricity? I don't think so, it must be The Force.
