Translating from Creationist to English

I’m looking for a linguist who can help me with translation—For it seems two different languages are used within this nation;Much more tricky than Bulgarian, more difficult than GreekIs the twisted form of English that Creationists now speak.The only rule, thus far, that I have managed to detectIn the reams of legal documents I’ve gathered …

The Complexity of Design

Each now and then, it’s fun to ask“What did The Maker have in MindWhen first He set about the taskAnd started making humankind?” We know, of course, that God Above,Not evolution, deaf and blind,Created us to show his loveAs clear as if The Artist signed. We know because we’re more complexThan any watch you have …

Apple Of My Eye…

From Pharyngula, more of the fruit fetish argument from design (or is that argument from ignorance?). First the banana, then the orange, now the apple. Is no fruit safe? Women, hide your melons! Men, protect your kiwis! There are men out there (and it always seems to be men, doesn’t it) with designs on your …

The giraffe song (not the unicorn song)

Over on “Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)“, there is an unfair contest going on. Unfair, because (apparently) GrrlScientist likes graphics. “Please show us in a picture because as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words”, she says. Hmph.

Kitzmiller v. Dover

I am writing this while watching, so I apologize for the incompleteness of my verse. It cannot, within the timeframe I would like, adequately address this wonderful program. Full Disclosure: I watched the trial as it progresseed, and read the transcripts as soon as they were made available; my verse here cannot possibly be the …

Cuttlefish in Genesis

So I was ego-surfing, and basking in all the wonderful cephalopoddity that comes with being a cuttlefish, when I happened upon a delightful little piece on cuttlefish, written by those helpful and friendly people at Answers in Genesis. Sure, the article was a few years old, but it was the first I had seen it, …
