We had a presentation on Intelligent Design at our institution of Higher Learning yesterday, which was not just well-attended -- it was packed. Students crammed themselves into the auditorium. Standing room only.
Professors came too.
A movement is afoot in the blessed state of Arkansas to require the teaching of ID in the high schools. Many if not most of our students here in the Fort think this is a fine idea. That's why they showed up to the presentation: to show their support for ID.
The professors, obviously, were there for Other reasons.
The professors, needless to say, wiped the floor with the ID guy. He stood no fucking chance. Our professors, and the guy who came down from Fayetteville, are, I don't need to tell you this, very smart, very well educated people. They actually know things about science, biology, and evolution. They not only shot this ID guy down, they shot his shot-down pieces into tiny little smoldering bits, and then they shot his bits to bits.
Did this make the slightest impression on our Faith-Based Students?
It did not.
Facts are Stupid Things. And so are Faith-Based Students.
God Said it. They Believe It. That Settles it.
So what are we even doing here?
