I find your faith (or lack thereof) disturbing.

"It takes a great deal of faith to believe the stuff scientists can come up with." - 201d
If I'm ever going to be quoted, I'd like it to be that way. Allow me to elaborate. A documentary film titled "Expelled" has been recently brought to my attention. I haven't had a chance to research the subject much, but that's the beauty of logic. Logic does not require research. If you want to claim wisdom, knowledge, maybe even intelligence, sure, you got to do your homework. But cold hard logic is a yes or no thing. Logic gives me a boner. You can quote me on that too.

The essence of the debate brought forth by Ben “Teh Shiznit” Stein is that educational institutions have been banning scientists who have proposed Intelligent Design as an alternative to Darwinism. What happened was that a horde of angry scientists, atheists and all kinds of ists grabbed their torch-and-pitchfork™ emergency kits and went out on a hunt. “Creationist propaganda” they call it, and they point their fingers at it with anger.

Now I ask you, my beloved reader, what about the “Darwinist propaganda” that has been shoved down our throats since childhood, sponsored by taxpayer funds? What happened to the separation of church and state? Why are my children forced to believe in the theory of evolution?

Yes, my friends, I’ve said theory. It’s not my job to look it up for you. Mind you, that I never said Creation is an absolute truth. It is a concept of religion, myth, or even legend, if you will. And it’s therefore of no consequence for me to convey which I find most appealing.

As a natural born problem solver, I propose you go see this documentary. However you must unlearn what you have been taught. Nobody has been able to scientifically prove neither of these theories. By watching it you shall be entertained by Ben “Teh Shiznit” Stein’s antics, and you might learn a thing about both “sides”; neither has a clue on what’s going on, and that drives them mad.

If this story had a happy ending, it would be like this:

  • Darwinist: “You, sir, are an idiot!”
  • Creationist: “No! You are!”
  • Darwinist: “You have no clue of what you’re talking about!”
  • Creationist: “Neither do you!”
  • (Awkward silence)
  • Darwinist: “Yeah…”
  • Creationist: “So, um, wanna go for some ice cream?”
  • Darwinist: “ICE CREAM! YAY!”
