Iffy science

Richard Buggs, of Truth in Science (aka Intelligent Design Theory in Schools), has wise words for us:

“But, whatever the limitations of Darwinism, isn't the intelligent design alternative an ‘intellectual dead end’? No. If true, ID is a profound insight into the natural world and a motivator to scientific inquiry.”

I couldn’t agree more. If it’s true, then it’s a good insight. And if smoking is harmless, then it’s not a health risk. If oak trees are animals, then some animals have leaves. If the Taj Mahal is made of apricot jam, then apricot jam is an excellent building material.
