By her logic, why should anyone care to discuss ancient myths that have no observable effect on the real world, just what the crazy adherents actually physically do in the name of these superstitions?

Easy: Supposedly we need the myths to base our morals on. This argument crops up approximately twice a week over there.

Since ID is, as we know, all about science, and they make this assertion (I think) much much more than twice a week, I'm waiting with bated breath for the day when someone, anyone (Bueller?) over there actually provides some data about the moral behavior of the religious vs. the non-religious.  If it's so freaking obvious that belief in goofy superstition is the basis of morality, you'd think it would be pretty easy to back up with evidence.

Of course, like my dad says all the time, "you'd think a lot of things, wouldn't you."
