Thinkquote of the day: Avoiding simple, obvious truths

"I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest & most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, & which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives."

- Leo Tolstoy

Isn't that a perfect description of ID/Creationism?  Once you've woven religion into the fabric of your life and explained how it means you are God's favorite and one of the very small elite that really understands what's going on to all your colleagues, you just can't accept even the most obvious truth that demotes you to an ordinary human being.  Better endless deception, obfuscation and self delusion than admitting that you're just a very ordinary small time hack writer.  Or a once promising scholar who thought he'd set the world on fire and ended up making an ass of himself on a world-wide stage.  Not to mention DaveTard.
