Diggers in the fossil-rich wilds of North Dakota have uncovered a whole mummified dinosaur. The ol’ fella is 65 million years old, give or take, and he’s got almost all of his skin, hinting at pretty quick fossilization under extreme conditions. This is a swell find, and it will simply add to the wealth of material available for scientists to study, to glean an understanding of the prehistoric world. We learn new things, sometimes we reject old ideas when they’re no longer valid or useful. But it’s an ongoing process of learning, and it has no time for intractible ideologies.
So while the ID crowd spends its time flogging press releases and quote mining peer reviewed articles or making insipid fakeumentaries about the sinister “Big Science” conspiracy to suppress all the hard research they aren’t actually doing…real scientists are out doing…teh science.
This is the difference between reality, and the warped vision of it that Ben Stein and Casey Luskin and John West and Bill Dembski and the DI seem to think we live in.
