Leftist Boddhisatva

Boddhisatvas love bananas.

Pharyngula is gloating. He has reason to be.

My take:

"Intelligent Design" or ID was always too Freudian to be acceptable to any reasonable Republican-appointed judge.

No, clearly, they need something that spells a better acronym. While SAT (for "Suddent Appearance Theory") has merit, it is too close to SAT, the test high school students take to get into college... and with the rise of an anti-testing sentiment among parents and teachers, that is sure to fail too.

Here are two suggestions for the backwards ID at the so-called Discovery Institute (remember, the institute was never 'discovered' so much as 'designed'):

BAD: Beetle-Adoring Designer (hat-tip to JBS Haldane)

GOT: God-Oriented Teleology

Of course, we could turn it around and call it CRAP (for Creationist Rapture-Associated Pseudoscience).

Current mood: more evolved bananas!
