Your overwhelming Denyseitude.

Oh, noooooeeez!

Birds: What you thought you knew about their evolution is ... wrong?

From both Science Daily and New Scientist comes the word that, in the words of New Scientist's Bob Holmes (June 26, 2008),

A new study – the largest analysis of birds to date using modern genetic methods – has turned up numerous surprising relationships that will force biologists to reevaluate much of what they thought they knew about avian evolution.

Those dastardly scientists -- being prepared to re-evaluate what they believed in light of new evidence. Bunch of sleazy douchebags, the lot of them, eh, Denyse?

And people wonder why there is an intelligent design controversy ...

Not really, Denyse. The world is full of hideously stupid people. No mystery there.

Scientist - re-evaluating data and findings with the latest in modern technology, constantly questioning assumptions and theories.

ID Fan - an invisible guy made everything with magic.

Doesn't this undermine their claim that the Great Left-Wing Atheist-Science-Socalist Conspiracy [tm] are hiding the Truth [tm]?

There is little value in trying to discuss this with hard-core creationists like Denyse O'Leary. On the one hand, they will bitch and moan about how the scientific establishment is intolerant and dogmatic, refuses to ever admit when it is wrong and "expels" anyone who does not toe the party line.

On the other hand, of course, that very same scientific establishment is frequently wrong and is constantly readjusting its theories to match all that pesky empirical evidence so how can you possibly trust them?

Amusingly, these wanks are quite capable of holding those two (mutually exclusive) beliefs simultaneously. That's because they're retarded.

But you knew that.

Obviously, the scientists would do well to be as fearlessly introspective as the creationists, instead of clinging desperately and stubbornly to 2,000 year-old ideas.

They could even go as far as producing the scientific equivalent of vaunted publications like Today's Deity, or Skywizard Monthly.

I know, I'm a dreamer.
