This may be a bit premature, but it looks like the complete collapse of the ancient “science” of creationism is at hand. Why do we say that? Because they don’t generate any stories we can blog about.
They’ve had no legislative victories since Louisiana and Tennessee enacted the Discovery Institute’s creationist Academic Freedom bill. As for litigation, not only don’t they have any court victories, it appears that they can’t even find a lawyer willing to litigate whatever grievances they have — and they do have them.
Don’t misunderstand. Creationists haven’t disappeared. They’re still out there, writing letters to the editor and visiting Hambo’s ark, but the big news is that they aren’t successful at bothering the rest of us. That’s great, but it means we often can’t find anything to blog about. So we’re declaring another Intellectual Free Fire Zone.
You know the rules. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, or even astrology, theology, mythology, and sociology — 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!
