Another week has passed and we’re still waiting for the Coppedge decision. It seems that until the world knows the results, all other news of The Controversy between evolution and creationism is on hold. But we did find a few items of interest.
We may have had a positive effect on Ellis Washington, our favorite columnist at WorldNetDaily (WND). Ellis often describes “trilogies” of evil people. The names comprising Ellis’ trilogies vary, but one of the three is usually Darwin. If Darwin isn’t in a trilogy, he’s always included in one of Ellis’ name-salads of evil people. His article this weekend, Is Obama a Marxist? (the answer will not surprise you), is the sort of thing that would usually mention Darwin. This time he didn’t do it, although he managed to toss in Joseph Goebbels, Woodrow Wilson, Mussolini, the Bolsheviks, Karl Marx (of course), a few Frenchmen, and several others — but no Darwin. Perhaps we’ve taught him a thing or two.
We also learned that termites behave like suicide bombers, and — this is truly shocking! — Study shows people view women as a collection of body parts.
In case you were wondering, the Amish are growing more rapidly than most other religions in the United States, and A new Amish community is founded every three and a half weeks in US.
Finally, according to the subject lines in today’s spam email, we can remodel our kitchen cabinets, earn an online degree, get a great deal from the Scooter Store, improve our credit rating, lose weight, and — best of all — the FBI is ready to send us our Nigerian inheritance.
So there you are. We’re on our own again. As with all our free-fire zones, we’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.
We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it.
