Once again the creationists are boring, so we’re declaring another Intellectual Free-Fire Zone. However, there are a couple of issues out there that you may want to talk about.
First, there’s the U.S. Supreme Court decision of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that overruled Roe v. Wade. Our link is to the Wikipedia article, but they link to the actual decision if you want to read it.
Creationists are thrilled. Ol’ Hambo wrote about the decision a few days ago: US Supreme Court Decision on Abortion. He begins by saying:
The court’s momentous decision, while it doesn’t outlaw abortion, has given Christians a timely teaching moment as each state will now be considering its own laws regarding abortion. This is an opportunity to present the powerful message that from both a biblical and scientific perspective, life begins at the moment of fertilization.
Impressive, huh? The Discoveroids have something else to brag about — see Intelligent Design Gets Its Own Car, written by Klinghoffer. He says:
[O]ur colleague Daniel Reeves points out that intelligent design has its own car, or cars: Volkswagen’s ID series, which are electric vehicles that have gone through several iterations. They’re now on the 2022 ID.4. Yes, it stands for “intelligent design.”
Amazing, isn’t it? And this isn’t the first time. A few years ago, when Volkswagen came out with the ID.3, we wrote A Victory for the Discovery Institute. We can understand how Volkswagen may have blundered once in naming a new car — but twice? And there may have been an ID.2 and ID.1.
Anyway, that’s all we can find. Therefore, we’re declaring another Intellectual Free-Fire Zone.
You know the rules. Feel free to use the comments 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!
