Scientists and God
One day a group of Darwinian scientists got together and decided that man had come a long way and no longer needed God. So they picked one Darwinian to go and tell Him that they were done with Him.
The Darwinian walked up to God and said, "God, we've decided that we no longer need you. We're to the point that we can clone people and do many miraculous things, so why don't you just go on and get lost."
God listened very patiently and kindly to the man. After the Darwinian was done talking, God said, "Very well, how about this? Let's say we have a man-making contest." To which the Darwinian happily agreed.
God added, "Now, we're going to do this just like I did back in the old days with Adam."
The Darwinian said, "Sure, no problem" and bent down and grabbed himself a handful of dirt.
God looked at him and said, "No, no, no. You go get your own dirt!!!!"
"You are metaphysicians. You can prove anything by metaphysics; and having done so, every metaphysician can prove every other metaphysician wrong--to his own satisfaction. You are anarchists in the realm of thought. And you are mad cosmos-makers. Each of you dwells in a cosmos of his own making, created out of his own fancies and desires. You do not know the real world in which you live, and your thinking has no place in the real world except in so far as it is phenomena of mental aberration." -The Iron Heel by Jack London

This reminded me of the Eddy Izzard skit on St Paul's letter to the Corinthians
I paraphrase from memory
"Don't do bad things, always do good things...Never put jam on a magnet, never put a sock in a toaster, (takes drag on joint) never lean over on a Tuesday.....
Love and kisses Paul (Saint)
Address The Corinthians ....errrrrrrrrrrr...Corinth
The reply then starts
Dear Paul (Saint, apparently) Fuck off!!! Who do you think you are, addressing a letter to an entire city....just Fuck off (there's more which I can't remember)

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." - H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)
"Nixon was a professional politician, and I despised everything he stood for â€” but if he were running for president this year against the evil Bush-Cheney gang, I would happily vote for him." - Hunter S. Thompson

This would be funny, but I live in Florida and the State School Board is voting today on whether to allow teachers to use the word evolution when teaching biology. They are not currently allowd to but do refer to change over time. The idiots opposed to the change keep bringing up "it's only a theory", "teach the evidence agaisn't evolution", "teach all the theories", and one group that is attacking this as a violation of free speach because the teachers aren't allowed to teach creationism or ID in science class!
