This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

How to piss me off

Ok, here are the rules for getting on my shitlist.

1) Badmouth evolution

Honestly people, if you believe in creationism in this day and age you might as well put a "I'm a dumb ass" sign on your forehead. I can forgive some ignorance, but if you're active in badmouthing evolution because your church tells you to, then you're a dupe. Evolution is good science, in fact, evolution is damn good science. Very few theories rank up there with evolution for its usefulness and its robustness. The only reason people attack evolution more so than other scientific theories is simply because it contradicts a literal reading of the Biblical creation story.

Smart religious people have learned to reconcile that contradiction with a more metaphorical or "poetic" reading of the creation story. I can understand that. But fundies think they can make evolution go away by yelling at it, or worse yet, pretending it doesn't exist and inflicting children with ignorance. But that isn't going to happen, because evolution is here to stay. Whether or not we choose to believe in something does not change the evidence. Without evolution, the entire science of genetics makes no sense. Why do we have mechanisms that enable an organism to adapt to change if they serve no purpose?

The entire debate betwen creationsim and evolution boils down to about a dozen or so easily debunked claims by creationists that have little or no basis in actual science. So next time your preacher makes a claim about evolution being false because of "X" fact, do all of us a favor, pick up a book or read some actual science before you go spouting off on the internet.

Little Green Goofballs,
Townhall (Oliver North especially)
Free Republic

They're either dangerous idiots, shills, or both. I've found nothing redeeming in these site/blogs. They are the internet equivalent of huffing -- it just makes you dumber.

... and that's about it.
