President Bush said Monday he believes schools should discuss "intelligent design" alongside evolution when teaching students about the creation of life.

Oh. See, at first when I saw that headline I thought that was a cool idea, and something surprisingly advanced for him to want taught in schools...Because when I read "Intelligent Design," I thought they meant like, Japanese furniture with built-in cup holders and those bags with holes in them for headphones and the Mighty Mouse, that sort of thing.

I like my version better.

Oh, FUCK. Yeah, I would discuss it. In the sense of "This is why it's a completely ridiculous idea to say that the eye couldn't have evolved." I'm about to start chewing on furniture. Get me out of this tower.

What I love is that the press refers to Intelligent Design as a Theory, when it is no such thing. It has not been tested and has not scientific evidence behind it. The fact that Pres. Bush would champion the teaching of such pseudo-science alongside real science says all you need to know about the man.

"Christian science" is a contradiction in terms. It is saddening that the most powerful nation on Earth is so afflicted by millennia-old mumbo-jumbo. Was the Enlightenment something that happened just to other nations?

Might have been, actually. According to my high school history class it was?
