O, biological evolution, we stand on guard for theeeeeeeee.
As part of a new program to make you readers do some of the work, I want folks to keep a close watch on Canadian newspapers and periodicals and bring to my attention any articles, letters, op-ed pieces, guest columns and so on that tout the value of "Intelligent Design" or anything remotely resembling that pig-ignorant, fundamentalist swill.
Every such example will be publicly and thoroughly humiliated in this space, and readers will be encouraged to write nasty letters and/or e-mails questioning those writers' education, literacy, ancestry, personal hygiene and sexual habits. (Well, OK, maybe not their sexual habits. I still can't get the mule thing out of my head.)
In short, the goal will be to make the life of any proponent of pseudo-scientific stupidity as unpleasant as possible. We'll tear them a new one, but with a touch of class. :-)
