Throwing in the Towel

Over at Scientific American, they've had it with the know-nothings, the creationists, the "intelligent design"-ers, the fundies, the anti-environmentalists, the flat-earth folks and all the rest of the ignorati who are increasingly running the show here in America -- they're officially giving up. They say as much in this month's issue.

"There's no easy way to admit this. For years, helpful letter writers told us to stick to science. They pointed out that science and politics don't mix. They said we should be more balanced in our presentation of such issues as creationism, missile defense and global warming. We resisted their advice and pretended not to be stung by the accusations that the magazine should be renamed Unscientific American, or Scientific Unamerican, or even Unscientific Unamerican. But spring is in the air, and all of nature is turning over a new leaf, so there's no better time to say: you were right, and we were wrong..."

Well, that's awfully big of them, even if their tongues are planted deep in their collective cheek. Check it out, it's a good read and an even better backhanded slap at the morons incapable of critical thought who have risen to such prominence in the wake of the Righteous and Imperial Bush presidency.

Generik aside -- Shorter Intelligent Design: "Gawrsh, I'm jes' too dang stoopid to understand how that there bye-rologee works, so it must be magic! Or God! Or sumthin'! A-hyuck!"
