I’ts hard to imagine a more exciting time to be participating in this discussion. Just the past 24 hours have brought some incredibly exciting exchanges and inside information, see here and here. But most entertaining of all is Eugenie Scott recruiting churches to defend Darwinism:

Richardo: Hey, we obviously can’t beat these religious fanatics into submission with our profoundly brilliant diatribe – but only because they have weak minds or are just plain stupid and evil.

Euginie: I just can’t believe we’re still even talking about this. But since we are I’d like to point out that it was MY idea to recruit the church so we can defeat those sickening ID religious fanatics.
Richardo: Yes, Eugie, but it was I who inspired your idea through proactive display of my brilliantly humorous and insightful parody of those poor idiotic knuckle-dragging droolers we’re trying to get on our side.
Eugi: OK, but I just can’t believe we’re still talking about this. I do like this picture of you in that wonderfully witty t-shirt though.
