Before we launch into our next Intellectual Free Fire Zone, we must bring a couple of matters to your attention.
First — and most important — we found an intelligently designed Smart Dog Toilet. If you visit that link you’ll need to scroll down to the fifth item — the INUBOX Smart Dog Toilet, about which they say — with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Now there’s a smart way for your dog to go to the bathroom indoors. INUBOX is able to capture, process, and even contain dog waste right inside your home. Totally odorless, the intelligent design [Hee hee!] detects when your dog steps on the platform and if there’s any waste left behind. As soon as your dog is done, the door closes and INUBOX begins a 1-minute cleaning cycle.
The next item of interest is the latest post by ol’ Hambo: 1,000 Scientists Sign Up to Dissent from Darwin. This one is really remarkable.
The Discovery Institute’s Scientific Dissent From Darwinism is a sad little list we’ve mentioned several times before, but this year their total finally reached 1,000 — see The Discoveroids Are Gaining Momentum. Although it’s far less than 1% of the scientists in the world (and many of the Discoveroids’ signatories aren’t actually scientists), that nice round number is having some kind of public relations effect. WorldNetDaily posted about it — see WND Likes ‘Dissent from Darwinism’ — and now Hambo.
However, unlike WND, Hambo isn’t in totally drool mode. He actually seems to understand some of the weaknesses in the Discoveroids’ “Dissent” statement. Well, at least he realizes that those who sign it probably aren’t his kind of creationist. He says:
Now it is important to understand that many of these scientists, while rejecting the idea that evolution is primarily powered by natural selection and mutations, still believe evolution — just a different form of it. Or they believe more research into evolutionary ideas needs to be done in order to discover what mechanism does power evolution.
Anyway, it’s time for another Intellectual Free Fire Zone. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. But beware of the profanity filters.
Okay, the comments are open. Have at it, dear reader.
