"Ever notice how people who believe in creationism look really un-evolved?"
- Bill Hicks
Jesus (no, not that guy, it's just an expression), what in the hell is going on over there in Kansas? Yesterday, the christian right scored a victory for stupidity, and blind faith over science, when the Kansas Board of Education (oh the irony!) voted in favor of teaching the incredibly ridiculous concept of "Intelligent Design" in schools.
"This is a sad day. We're becoming a laughingstock of not only the nation, but of the world, and I hate that."
- Janet Waugh, a Kansas City Democrat
Mmm. Sucks to be a laughingstock. And I should know, because it ain't Kansas that the world is laughing at, it's this entire country, because this country allowed a fuckin' moron like GWB to happen. Twice.
Personaly, I think this site has got it goin' on. It picks up where ID leaves off. Instead of just suggesting that there has to be a higher power behind this complex universe, it goes on to identify that entity -- the flying spaghetti monster. These good folks have also clearly identified the source of global warming: the shrinking pirate population.
Hey, why not? It makes about as much sense as the so-called theory of ID, and just a little more sense than that good book that gets thumped every Sunday.
I find it ironic that a new Bill Hicks album was released yesterday too. I don't think I've ever talked about Bill Hicks on this site aside from quoting him, but he's one of my all-time favorite comedians (thanks Tim). I should add Bill Hicks to my long list of Things I need to Blather-on About. I sure wish Bill were still around today to comment about Bush II and all his havoc.
