Evolution, the series

The New York Times is doing a special series on Evolution this week. Yesterday, the series had stories about the Discovery Institute and the creationist (oops I mean Intelligent Design) point of view. Today, the series features an article on the point of view of scientists. The article talked about why so many scientists are atheists or agnostics, and how those scientists who do believe in god reconcile their beliefs with their job. I've enjoyed the series so far, and highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the current debate(even though there really is no true debate when one side is just flat out wrong).

My thought of the day:
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. + There are alot of stupid people out there (particularly when it comes to science) = Creationism/Intelligent Design and every other douchebaggery pseudoscience piece of garbage out there.
