A colleague pointed out the clever image to the right created by Mike Rosulek. Mike has set up a storefront on Zazzle to sell items with the image and a few different slogans, giving the proceeds to the National Center for Science Education. Sadly, the top “Latest News” item on the NCSE’s website is a story about anti-evolution legislation recently introduced in the Missouri House of Representatives. Previous attempts to pass such a bill have failed. Here’s hope that, in this case at least, past performance is the best predictor of future outcomes. One last time for the slow learners: intelligent design is not a scientific theory. If you want to teach it, teach it in a social studies class.
