Not just intelligent design, but super-intelligent design.

@DG: I'm impressed. Since the narrator has a British accent, it must be true :-)

Well, I guess the scientists are just gonna have to throw in the towel on their "theory" of evolution. Who can argue with such iron-clad proof as this:

Absolutely. They are not going to be very successful with their message in NYC's Upper West Side, but it is a dangerous thing. Before the Jews and Catholics did not have a problem with evolution but I can see that cretinism, I mean, hum, creationism, tends to spread among the rabidly religious :-(

This is exactly why science has to speak loudly against the anti-reality crowd, or, maybe that's what atheists are for. =)

"Haredi" Anti-Evolution "Exhibit" Opens Tomorrow On NYC's Upper Wes...

JPAC Anti-Evolution Exhibit 9-20-11"Wednesday afternoon on the upper westside on Manhattan,home to New yorks largest secular Jewish community will witness a scene never seen anywhere before. Young Chareidi activists will display stuffed animals with their babys and cubs to proove evolution is a myth."


JPAC Anti-Evolution Exhibit 9-20-11 

Here is the exact text complete with typos sent to me along with the above photo by JPACNY:

Wednesday afternoon on the upper westside on Manhattan,home to New yorks largest secular Jewish community will witness a scene never seen anywhere before. Young Chareidi activists will display stuffed animals with their babys and cubs to proove evolution is a myth. This is the first time that such a program is going public as a means to do outreach to secular Jews especially before Rosh hashonah,the Jewish new year. It is being organized by a small very vocal group known as JPAC Jewish political Action committee. In the past JPAC had its anti gay marriage campaign carried by Associated press which posted pictures of a stuffed dog hinting that today man marrys man and soon man marrys dog.The picture was picked up by over 2000 newspapers worldwide. In fact the iconic dog used in that photo is once again going to appear this time to fight the ideas of evolution.

So what we seem to have is illiterate haredim doing "outreach" to secular educated Jews to "proove" to them that evolution is a "myth."

I posted on JPAC's ridiculous anti-gay rights stunt equating same sex marriage with beastiality. That animals like dogs cannot consent to sexual relations with a human while males humans can consent to have sex with other male humans is completely lost on these people.

So is the idea that animals also practice homosexuality, and that homosexuality is found throught nature.

I hope JPAC is some sort of a twisted parody by a Modern Orthodox person with a mental defect.

But unfortunately it may very well be real.

Banning stupidity, what a novel idea.

David Attenborough joins campaign against creationism in schools

Sir David Attenborough has weighed into a campaign calling for creationism to be banned from the school science curriculum and for evolution to be taught more widely in schools.

The naturalist joined three Nobel laureates, the atheist Richard Dawkins and other leading scientists in calling on the government to tackle the "threat" of creationism.

Gordon Brown's government issued guidance to all schools that the subject should not be taught to pupils, but neither they nor the coalition government enshrined the recommendation in law.

In a statement on a new campaign website, the 30 scientists and campaign groups including the British Science Association demanded creationism and "intelligent design" be banned outright.

Prof Colin Blakemore, the neurobiologist, Sir Paul Nurse, the President of the Royal Society, and former Royal Society director of education Rev Prof Michael Reiss were among the signatories.

Rev Prof Reiss, who has described evolution as "God's work", resigned from his Royal Society post in 2008 after suggesting science lessons ought to include discussion of creationism.

Canada is a real cesspool: we can see women's breasts on TV, we welcome terrorists with open arms, we publish anything (PM Harper doesn't read) and socialism is rampant.
