Dowd on Creationism

I'm not a big fan of New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, but her column today makes some good points. She achieves the proper tone of contempt for creationists:


Nipples may be biologically de trop for men, an “expert” on the site notes, but that doesn't mean they resulted from natural selection. They could just as well be a decorating feature of the Creator's (like a hood ornament). Who are we to question His designs, since we cannot presume to comprehend His mind?

The virtual tour of the museum, to be built in rural Kentucky, says its exhibits will explain many such mysteries, like the claim that T. rex lurked around Adam and Eve - “That's the terror that Adam's sin unleashed!” - and how “Noah and his family survive 371 days alone on an animal-filled boat” (“a real 'Survivor' story”).

The philosophy of the Creation Museum, part of the “Answers in Genesis” ministry, is summed up this way: “The imprint of the Creator is all around us. And the Bible's clear - heaven and earth in six 24-hour days, earth before sun, birds before lizards. Other surprises are just around the corner. Adam and apes share the same birthday. The first man walked with dinosaurs and named them all! God's Word is true, or evolution is true. No millions of years. There's no room for compromise.”

Personally, I've decided to stop evolving. No point, really. Evolution is so 20th century.

Or you could both be wrong. I believe you are! If evolution is what created DNA, and all its accompanying safeguards (only one error made in a billion!) against mutations (which would be its only route to new information), then evolution has selected against itself! We're all doomed, because evolution has hit a dead end and whether you have "decided to stop evolving" or not is a moot point. You can claim apes as your relatives if you like. I'll stick with Adam and Eve, thank you! If you're not descended from them, you are not a human being!
