"We've been attacked by the intelligent, educated segment of the culture," -Ray Mummert, Dover creationist.

Just had to remind people of that, after reading about it in Welcome to Idiot America, an excellent essay in this month's Esquire.

Is that a real quote?  :)

If I fly the coop some time
And take nothing but a grip
With the few good books that really count
It's a necessary trip

I'll be gone with the girl in the gold silk jacket
The girl with the pearl-driller's hands

I don't know.  I saw it on Lenny Flanks website a couple months ago.  I hope it isn't real because... well, dayum.  But then I hope it is because I use it as part of my sig on another forum . :D

It was originally a news story carried on Yahoo news, on a page that is no longer available.  The full context is given here: http://atheism.about.com/b/a/160018.htm.

That is truly, truly wonderful.  Of course, the logical deduction is that he believes the Creationists are the stupid and eneducated segment of society, which I don't suppose is what he meant, but IS what he implied.  :D
