Happy Darwin Day! Don't forget to kiss a fellow primate today.

If you're a product of special creation rather than an East African Plains Ape, well, good luck with that next staph infection. Me, I like antibiotics. My money's on evolution over prayer every single time.

Every single time?
Including the placebo effect?

Pah. A psychological effect which is ultimately a product of the brain's evolutionary development. Placebo effect DNE divine intervention.

(Besides, you're stepping on a perfectly good line here.)

St Francis D'Assisi might disagree with you ;)

Good comeback, good comeback.

I'm going to go beat my chest in excitement at the nearest waterfall. ;)

I've said it before, I'll say it again. What is so dad-blamed horrible about being the current version in a long line of hominids?

If you insist on blasphemin' like that, then don't come cryin' to me when you're burning in Hell.

Sheesh.

One downside of evolution: Bacteria evolve, too.

You'd think Ye Olde Intelligente Designer would have fixed this bug in the machine.

just had a posting about the new pro-creationist documentary with Ben Stein. There's a link to take you to the movie producers blog where they talk about Darwin Day.
