Let There Be Lemurs

Since I will be posting primarily at the end of the day, this blog, or at least my contributions, will not contain lots of up-to-the minute developments, breaking stories, etc. However, I did want to draw attention to this Washington Post op-ed on intelligent design in which Charles Krauthammer provides the following quotable quote:
It is a 'theory' that admits that evolution and natural selection explain such things as the development of drug resistance in bacteria and other such evolutionary changes within species but also says that every once in a while God steps into this world of constant and accumulating change and says, 'I think I'll make me a lemur today.'

Seems reasonable. I think after a hard day of constant and accumulating change I would probably come up with something like that too.


Update 11/26/05: MCC suggests further reading on the subject.

A vote for uncreative scatology...

I hope Mr. Krauthammer is reading your blog. I would like to send him another example of intelligent design (http://www.hdk.gu.se/examina/exa04/gd9emmme1e.shtml) from my brethren in the homeland. There is just no other way to explain it.
