Apparently, this IS a joke....

Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held "theory of gravity" is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of "Intelligent Falling". And now, the Evangelical Center and other Christian conservative action groups are calling for public-school curriculums to give equal time to this "Intelligent Falling" theory.
Makes you wonder what the next "intelligent" theory will be...and it reminds of the bumper sticker I've seen that says, "Beam me up, Scotty! There's no intelligent life on this planet."
(thanks to bonni, from Melbourne, Australia, for setting us straight on the fact that this really is a joke!)

Errr, it IS a joke. The Onion is a satire publication. ;-)

Still, it's a great link!

What a great blog! I'm so honored to be on the blogroll (Genetics and Public Health Blog). :)

As for "intelligent" theories of evolution and whatnot, if I were trying really hard to think positively, I'd just say these folks are true philosophers - not assuming anything and keeping an open mind. *cough*
