Evolution vs. Creationism

I have followed the present US debate on Evolution vs. Creationism (aka Intelligent Design) which, to a Swede, seems to belong to a bygone age, ending as far as I knew with the film “Inherit the Wind”. An educational and at the same time very sensitive summing up of the situation is to be found here at Respectful Insolence (a.k.a. "Orac Knows")

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

"The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself."

-- Archibald Macleish
