Kelly sent me this charming news item, and it reminded me of all the things I hated about Alberta. The sense that everything was spiralling south - deep South, that is. If there's one part of north america you should not aspire to be like, it's the American South, but here's Alberta with a creation museum and a majority belief in 'intelligent design'. Shudder. I'm not trying to force my beliefs on anyone, but COME ON. This 'intelligent design' crap is the equivalent of believing the world is flat. Maybe we need to have a little rethink about what science is, and how it's based on facts, and what 'having your head up your bloody ass' is, and how it is based on people being uneducated. Just so we're clear, I think a belief in God is hunky dory so long as you aren't killing anyone because of it. But it's ridiculous to ignore facts and live in a fantasy flat world where everyone just popped out of thin air exactly as they are today when there is absolutely NO evidence to support this, and literally tons of bones to prove the 'fucking fact of evolution'. I think we've done the idiots of the world a great disservice by calling it the "Theory of Evolution" because they hang their continued ignorance on the word "Theory", without understanding what that word means in scientific terms. I'm not the one to argue this with - you want Kelly for a real good throw down on this, but he's awfully busy conquering the world and getting his second degree, so we can't bother him.
