His Noodly Appendage

If you're gonna teach creation myths in schools -- which is what Intelligent Design is -- then you have to teach all of them. Including the one about the Flying Spaghetti Monster who created all things, according to a belief system. Be sure to check out the illustrations and comments.

Oh, and I love the graph about the relationship between the decline in the # of pirates and global warming. Which makes me want to go into one of my rants about how no one should graduate from high school without a thorough understanding of statistics and how they can be manipulated.

The big problem with ID, of course, is that it is not science. So it can't be taught along with evolution, which is science. End of discussion.

It is called the "Theory" of Evolution for a reason. It is only a theory and can never be proved. Also, not every scientist subscribes to it and a lot of them are not so quick to be so closed minded about other theories.

This comment is so childish and silly. And demonstrates a total lack of understanding of scientific principles. The reality is, ID is based on religious principles, not scientific ones. Its apples and airplanes to try to compare the two.
