Laugh of the Day

The Discovery Institute whines, "Why Are Darwinists Scared to Read Signature in the Cell?", Stephen Meyer's latest ID promo.

To which the proper response is, "Why Are ID Proponents Scared to Submit Their Data to Scientists, and Why Do They Market Directly to an Un-Science-Literate Public?"

Or, "Why Does the Discovery Institute Focus on PR Instead of Research?"

Of course we know why. It's because they still don't have the data. And without this evidence, they're forced to pimp their movement directly to an unsuspecting public.

Here's what a help-wanted ad from the DI must look like:

Wanted: Research Scientist.
Duties: Communicate our vision of science to the public through church lectures, popular books published by religious publishers, opinion pieces, and staged debates.
Perks: No long hours in the lab. No submissions to peer-reviewed science journals required. No presentations of data at science conferences necessary.
Requirements: Good hair & smile. Ability to utter contradictory and absurd statements without flinching is a must.
Education: B.A. in Marketing, Leadership Studies or Political Science preferred. Will accept a J.D. if we get really desperate.
Previous Experience: Positions in used-car sales, ambulance chasing, or advertising are helpful.
Salary: Commensurate with experience, and dependent on the generosity of our donors.
