What kills me is how they think they're being so clever. How naive to you have to be to think that University students have never been exposed to the ridiculousness of Intelligent Design? I'd love to be there to see some of the reactions they get

Also, since its also public domain, I think we should rework a version of the bible to include evolution and hand it out to sunday school children

Alright, I had to stop reading it. At first, its funny to know how little these people have actually tried to understand the theory that they belittle, but to think that there are people out there who will actually take what they say at face value is infuriating. And the fact that the same arguments - ones that i know have been clearly explained to them as having no merit - are dragged out again and again is beyond retardation.

well, i just love the argument "How can something come from nothing?????OMGZ!!!" Yet when questioning who created God, he/she/it was already there and created itself...basically created from nothing. Or it just always existed.

That just makes so much better sense!

Kirk Cameron's radical beliefs embarrass me as a Christian.

Fossil Sheds Light on the Lizard-Snake Divide
By SINDYA N. BHANOO

The origin of snakes is a perplexing matter. Although DNA analysis suggests that snakes are related to monitor lizards and iguanas, they are anatomically more similar to a group of earthwormlike creatures called worm lizards.

Now a new study helps clear the confusion, suggesting that worm lizards are related not to snakes, but to lacertids, a group of limbed lizards found in Europe, Africa and Asia.

Writing in the journal Nature, researchers identify a 47 million-year-old fossilized lizard in Germany that appears to be a common relative to both lacertids and worm lizards.

“This was the transitionary animal; it was exactly what we were looking for,” said Johannes Müller, a paleozoologist at the Natural History Museum in Berlin and the study’s first author. “It indirectly implies that identifying burrowing worm lizards with snakes is a mistake.”

Dr. Müller and his co-authors used X-ray computed tomography, or CT scans, to study the skull of the fossilized lizard and compare it with living lizards and snakes. They found that the fossilized lizard had a thickened, capsulelike skull with no external ear opening, similar to worm lizards.

The fossil was discovered in Messel Pit, a fossil site near Frankfurt and a Unesco World Heritage Site. The lizard, named Cryptolacerta hassiaca, is less than three inches in length and is the only known specimen of its kind.
