As she [Lynn Margulis] said at our Darwin Day celebration at Cornell this past February, no greater affirmation of one's "having arrived" as a major theorist in evolutionary biology could be imagined.

Oh, so the anti-evolutionists do have a use - they're a measuring stick of the importance of new hypotheses. :p

And unless and until IDers decide that it's finally time to stop doing agitprop and start doing science, they and the creationists will at best be a trivial footnote.

Well, the problem with that is that "doing science" would mean actually paying attention to the evidence, which they and we both know would lead right back to the very theory that they're trying to get rid of. Can't have that, ya know! :p
