You Can't Have it Both Ways

The Daily Show has become, for many of us, the best commentary on the bizarre times in which we live. Last night, Lewis Black made a great point and made me laugh out loud as well. He was ranting (as he does) about stem cell research and showed a clip of Mel Gibson. Gibson's pathetic point was that we all came from these stem cells so they're obviously human (oy) and Gibson promised to give a cigar to anyone who could prove otherwise. Black came back on after the clip and said "Hey Mel two words -- Adam and Eve. Two cigars!" The brilliance of this is, of course, that Mel opened the door by mixing his religious beliefs and science. You can't have it both ways, dopes.

As another very funny guy puts it, the people who elected Bush get "Four more years of scientific decisions being made by people who believe in a ghost in the clouds."
