Spinning Science: Court Rules that Intelligent Design is ... Well ... Unintelligent

The good people of Pennsylvania, who already fired the school board officials who tried to foist Intelligent Design on their children, will be pleased at the court support granted today.

Still, regardless that Intelligent Design continues to be dismissed as a thinly veiled cover for Creationism, sites like the Intelligent Design Network continue to put up credible-looking fronts for this scientific fraud.

Dream on About a White Christmas

But we have a trend and the skiers aren't going to like it.

No Kidding; We're Green

In further pursuing “the truth about global warming,” (see next post), I've stumbled upon the Grinning Planet website which claims to be “saving the planet, one joke at a time.”

Alas, GP stumbled into the subject of climate change and found it, mostly, unfunny.
