If the God of Creationists does exist, he's a jackass.

Seriously, anyone who looks at nature, and sees the hand of God, then uses that as an argument for Creationism, needs to have their ass kicked.

I present the following as evidence for my title:

  • In case the link titles don't tip you off, this isn't pretty
Exibit A: Organisms that look designed (The Argument from Irreducible Grotesqueness)

Exibit B: The 5 Most Horrifying Bugs in the World
  • Okay, science (mankind) has to take some blame for the Africanized Honey Bee, but it's not as if there was some deep genetic manipulation happening, it was simple cross-breeding.
Modern Evolutionary Theory can explain these nasty critters very handily.

How do they fit into "God's perfect creation"?. Or were they, like T-Rex, herbivorous before The Fall?

Tragically ironic

I seem to be in a morbid kind of mood today.


Gary Gygax, 1938-2008

This is all over the blogoshpere, so I won't belabor it much.

Gary Gygax died yesterday at 69 years old.

For those of you who don't know who he was:
Gary Gygax was a co-founder of TSR (Tactical Studies Rules), the original publisher of Dungeons and Dragons and later Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. Gary wrote a large portion of the material for both. He also wrote fantasy novels (not great, but entertaining). As such, he was a big part of my teen years.

Now I'm feeling nostalgic. I'm going to have to try to find some people.
