    I didn’t see the lion at first and couldn’t figure this out.

    The creationists should be along any minute to whine about natural selection (exoticdoc2 is usually first).
    The other day I read an interesting idea—creationists now are in the same position as geocentrists were in the time of Galileo. At the very end of their heyday, with all the facts against them, but desperately trying to hold on to their cultural power. That is why, despite the fact that they have lost every scientific battle (see, for example, the books “Why Evolution is True” by Jerry Coyne, “Why Evolution Works (and Why Creation Fails)” by Young & Strode, or “Scientists Confront Creationism” edited by Petto & Godfrey), and every legal battle (Epperson v. Arkansas, Edwards v. Aguillard, Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District), they resort to politics (think Rick Perry appointing one creationist after another to the Texas State Board of Education) to hang on to cultural power; sort of a “damn the facts, full speed ahead” approach. Their inability to come to grips with reality would be sad if it weren’t so dangerous to the future of education in this country.
    A nice, short primer on natural selection can be found at http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/article/0_0_0/evo_25 which is part of a very nice introductory course on evolution; start here: http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/home.php

    We’ve all seen pictures of the ‘Big, Blue Marble’. Of course, it’s really a marble hung on a string against a black background.


    The world is flat, as any fool can see for himself or herself. If it were a world spinning madly as it drifted through the dark, swinging through a hollow of haze, we’d all be dizzy.


    And Foucalt’s Pendulum only moves because the atheists move it when no one is looking.


    And Mitt will balance the budget by cutting the tax rates.

    The evolutionists ignore a lot too. Did you watch Expelled by Ben Stein?

    Did you watch Expelled Exposed?

    Remember, everything a creationist says to you, unless it’s blatant ignorance, is an intentional lie. They are not interested in truth; they are interested in people buying their books and hanging on to the vestiges of cultural power they once enjoyed.
