Two words on Intelligent Design

Ga! Sometimes my self-imposed ban on dignifying Intelligent Design with any sort of response can be so hard!

Times: Creationism gains foothold in schools

The [UK] government has cleared the way for a form of creationism to be taught in Britain's schools as part of the religious syllabus.

Lord Adonis, an education minister, is to issue guidelines within two months for the teaching of "intelligent design" (ID), a theory being promoted by the religious right in America.

Until now the government has not approved the teaching of the controversial theory, which contradicts Darwinian evolutionary theory, the basis of modern biology.

…so I'll limit myself to just two words:

Arse wank!

(I hope that's dignified enough for you.)

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
