    If only there were a legal basis for denying the benefits of science to those who reject its findings.

    Can you imagine the screams that would come from the religious fundamentalists if they were denied all forms of medical care that have been invented since the publication of “On the Origin of Species!” After all, aren’t both scientific and technological advances forms of evolution?

    Science in its most fundamental form, the theory of evolution being one of the more basic theories (read that as: “logical organizing framework”) of science (which, for the uninitiated or simply ignorant) is a method, not a body of knowledge. Mathematics and logic are but two of the tools.

    If religious fundamentalists (of any stripe) lived up to their professed belief systems, they would eschew any treatment which did not exist at the time of the formation of their respective religion. Anyone who does otherwise is engaging in hypocrisy of the worst sort.

    @Half Nelson
    ““theory” is a scientific term, the corresponding laymans term is “fact”

    I thought it was “Newton’s Law of Gravity” not theory and that scientific “facts” had the status of “Laws”…but then again I’m just a wabbit…FSM’ism is certainly science…Mr Henderson has a complicated set of drawing and graphs which prove it…peer reviewed by pirates and scally wags everywhere…

    @ James #39. Just send an E-mail to Bobby Henderson. He has a “contact me” button on the side bar. We’d all look forward to reading it.

    I’m curious as to just where the poll was taken and how wide across the board it was. Good publicity though.

    It seems that there is an easy explanation for the differences between the zealots’ belief in evolution and our enlightened belief. That is; we will evolve, they won’t. Yet another reason we should show them kindness and understanding since they won’t be around after we develop organic air conditioning for the coming warm period.

    I will miss the Polar Bears, though.

    @ tris #33:
    I can’t speak for Europe as a whole, but in Italy the situation is not very bright…

    Maybe it’s because the Vatican is actually inside Rome, our capital city, but still… sometimes I’m scared at the way things go here. Our government tried to impose the teaching of Creationism and ID in our schools too, and many of our politicians stated publicly that they do not believe (yes, believe) in Darwinism. Among these politicians, there is also our prime minister.
    Yeah, that jester. You’re free to laugh, I know that Berlusconi is an embarassing prime minister…

    These god idiots are ruining the world, they should all be burned like in their foolish stories.

    Your god is dead, and no one cares.
