Quote:
In closing, I do want to thank you sincerely for this invitation and for your posting on the Discovery Institute Website. As an evolutionary biologist, I can't tell you what a badge of honor this is. My colleagues will be envious.

Sincerely yours,

Nick Gotelli

P.S. I hope you will forgive me if I do not respond to any further e-mails from you or from the Discovery Institute. This has been entertaining, but it interferes with my research and teaching.

Priceless.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

Wow, that was a sound

Wow, that was a sound lashing. I wonder if he did a little dance when he hit the "send" button, like he knew that one was solid.

Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
No animal shall wear clothes.
No animal shall sleep in a bed.
No animal shall drink alcohol.
No animal shall kill any other animal.
All animals are equal.

What the heck to they put in

What the heck to they put in those magazines? Are they doing "new research" constantly? Isn't all of the research already done for them in the book of holy magical wish granting?

I love that it says they are "peer reviewed by degreed scientists." Peer reviewed by our very own editing staff... fair and balanced is the name of the game!

I had a quick look at some of the articles it's like evidance for the flood etc. I'm pretty sure a high school student could poke holes in most the articles. I cba to read a hole one though.
