Firstly, Joseph Farah gives us his take on Tiktaalik:

We don't know that the Tiktaalik lived 383 million years ago. We don't know that it used its unusual fins to walk. We don't know that it ever left the water. We don't even know for sure that it is extinct today. And we sure don't know that it represents any link between one species and another.

We simply don't know what we don't know. And I sure wish those who called themselves scientists would just admit that.

Just priceless.

Where, one reader demanded, did I get the information that 10 percent of scientists accept intelligent design? I got it from a National Post (newspaper) article published two years ago, which said that 90 percent of the members of the National Academy of Science "consider themselves atheists." Since if you're not an atheist, you allow for the possibility of a Mind or Intelligence behind nature, this puts 10 percent in the I.D. camp.

Thats the daftest thing I've read in a long time.

Correction: HE doesn't know. Fascinating that he projects his own bottomless ignorance onto everyone else. "I sure wish all them liberal scientists would just 'admit' my personal bias!"

True, but it fits in neatly with the 'make shlt up and that makes it true' mindset of modern wingnuts.

I seem to recall being the one to wonder, in the UD thread, where that 10% came from.  I see that theistic evolutionists, Buddhist, etc, are now being lumped into the ID camp.  I wonder what Buddhists think of that?

We don't want anything to do with DaveTard, believe me.

Besides, ID is a Christian Fundie show. They don't want anything to do with non-Christians, regardless of what they may say. Occasionally they claim people of other religions to boost their numbers and make themselves look a little less bigoted, but when they play coy about 'the Designer', they ain't talking about Allah or Brahma, believe me.
