The Smithsonian is targeting students who doubt Darwinism, according to a recent article at Evolution News. “The most amusing part of the exhibit proudly explains that evolution predicted we’d lack evidence for evolution; that’s how we know it’s true!”
Now I’m sure you know what I’m thinking. Yep. I’m thinkin’, How come the “lack of evidence” for evolution is itself evidence for evolution? And this is from the Smithsonian? Are we supposed to take them seriously now? As scientists? As an organization that promotes or represents a high standard of science? A high standard? Any standards?
Excuse me, I’m going to get a cup of coffee to help my poor head. I suddenly have developed a headache. First I read that certain lawmakers are considering banning late-term abortions because they hate the thought of causing pain to fetuses. Not killin’ ’em, mind you. Apparently, that doesn’t bother ’em at all. But causin’ ’em pain, no, can’t have that. Good Lord. Now the Smithsonian says that no evidence is evidence. Oy ve. Has the world gone insane? Have people gone absolutely crazy?!
