Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy.

Handy Reference: Telling Intelligent Design from Creationism

Some of you have been writing in since my recent remarks about Intelligent Design and Creationism, asking whether or not they're really the same thing. I had earlier claimed that they are but, as it happens, the folks from The Panda's Thumb have corrected me on this point. As it turns out, Intelligent Design and Creationism are not the same thing- Intelligent Design is vastly more vacuous a theory than Creationism

Yeah, you heard that right.

Now, if you will excuse me, I have a human subjects authorization with our local IRB to work on. Those of you in research fields probably know exactly how fun this kind of experience is.
