Re: Doonesbury on Creationism
OK, since some "funnies" got comments earlier in the thread I guess it isn't out of order for me to comment on this: It's the usual misrepresentation of creationists which really by now ought to have been put to rest at evc. Silly straw man. Obnoxious straw man actually. There's nothing "macro" about the "evolution" of bacteria, and macroevolution is all creationists disagree with.

Must be over twenty years since I thought Doonesbury had anything funny or true to say.

I'll wager that you'll never see
a monkey or a chimpanzee
denying they are kin to me;
they've got more sense.
In all my life I never knew
a wallaby or kangaroo
to disagree with Darwin's view
and take offence.

But neither would the kangaroo
Or any creature in the zoo
Treat evolution as a view
To proselytize.
The chimpanzee up in the tree
Cares not a whit for EvC
And has no cause that I can see
To dogmatize.

I thought your poem was very well crafted, and quite amusing. My effort was a sort of homage to yours in a way while disagreeing with you, although maybe it came out more of a parody. That is hardly plagiarizing. My scansion is impeccable, something wrong with you there. So sorry it turns out you don't have a sense of humor after all, and that your self-declared talent is perhaps not quite as Adequate as you believe it to be.
Cheers.

I believe that's called parody.

Thank you. Great minds ... etc.
