And next weekend, the Flat Earth Society Prom

Determined to become the laughingstock of all institutions of higher learning, the university up the hill welcomes this group of antediluvian thinkers to campus.

Up next: Age of Enlightenment a Bad Idea Debate (Pro-Rollback to Dark Ages Advocates Allowed Free Parking).

After that: Slavery Not Such a Bad Concept After All Convention.

Followed by: Reunion of Bob Jones University Alumni.

Hey, I have a question... What would be wrong with Intelligent Design vs. Darwin at SMU?

I mean, Flying Pasta with Bolognese and Respect My Authoritey can very well live in the same world. From my humblest of positions, I submit my support for every and all manifestations of proposed related conferences after Intelligent Design vs. Darwin. Too bad I know these you’ve proposed are not for real, or not there to stay at least... Like, take, Generation X. It was a fad. Just like Bong Hits for Jesus and massacres and related recurring fantasies. Oh, and Altoids. And that Lou Reed CD. And my earphones...

As Aristotle and his crooks would say, "all the world is an infinite concatenation of causes with a single original cause". Smart dude. I had only consciously noted from 25 to 28 of those infinite things. He should run for Conference Committee President or related posts.

But then, he died. Too bad. I'm sorry, but since you are not going to support any more of those confeys, I’m transferring to A&M.

See, that's actually why people nowadays study film instead of philosophy.

Here is the reason why it should not be on a university campus.

"They have no place on an academic campus with their polemics hidden behind a deceptive mask."

IDiots are not seeking knowledge or the free exchange of ideas. ID is NOT about science. It is about pushing creationism with pseudo-science.

They would deserve a chair at the academic table if they were honest enough to call it what it is, creationism.

It was all going well... Until they started selling their students. Not that professors got better treatment; but they needed them to attract more students, in spite of the complaint that they did not pay tuition monay but they were drawing from it. So Monograph Uni just collapsed out of thin air.

And then, just like that, it became a Uni yet again.

Sometimes it's sad that we are so strong on our beliefs (pro-against Bush library, pro-against Creationism), that such freedom of speech (like this 'debate') is still bothersome since there's so many people out there that are too dumb to think logically (meaning see both sides – faults and strong points). This is the real qualm isn't it? People here are susceptible to 'propaganda'? Don't get me wrong... I have personal experience in the realm of the scary world of Republican SMU – mostly this – people are apathetic. To question Intelligent Design is right about up there with whether to pick up their dog’s shit. I would merely attend for the entertainment. Maybe if SMU's reputation wasn't, well, George W Bush, then perhaps this event would seem more acceptable (If this came to the UT campus I bet hardly anyone would complain. This is because their campus is ‘liberal’ as young people should lean towards anyways and most likely would be an interesting debate with ‘opposing views’ besides just that of pissed off teachers). Particularly scary is that they threw in the concept of ‘law’. As if we need more religion-joins-state wacko proposed laws to be heard. I guess SMU would be their path to scaring the entire nation.
I’m just kind of boggled by this all.

Ready to graduate…

You can't really debate with some one who ignores facts and evidence and the scientific method even though they claim to support a scientific theory.

So really it's a presentation of ID. This is trying to wrap up creationism in a nice scientific package, but it's still creationism.
