Evolution

The good people of Kaerwyn linked me to this series of videos a while back, and I have to say they're /good/. It starts out pretty funny in the first few videos, but starts turning out more and more serious as it goes on. Well anyway, this one in particular is an excellent arguement for why Intelligent Design has no right going right up against Evolution because of the way the scientific community works.

I remember when I was in college, one of my professors (In biology) told me that science is the art of disproving everyone else. At first I thought that was just a cynical view of it. But really, it's true on some level. A scientist comes up with something, writes their papers, and every other scientists giggle in glee like hyenas and vultures to a fresh kill. Science works because the most intelligent people in the world have tried to tear apart everyone's work until it stands, and faces them, without being taken down. Creationists, on the other hand, just expect you to believe it, because that's what /faith/ is. And faith has no business being in the realm of science.
