Why scientists dismiss "intelligent design."

WOW!!! This is a surprisingly good article that basically kicks the shit out of "Intelligent Design." A must read for anyone that is curious about the current state of affairs in the battle between evolution and intelligent design.


P.S. Chuck thinks that he is the "Creator" but he is really closer the a nylon eating bacteria. Hmmmmm......Nylon.

Costco is selling Xbox 360's for $479.00

I do not currently own a gaming console but reading about this little unit almost gave me a boner. Who knows, maybe I'll be playing Project Gotham Racing 3 in a couple months.

Serenity The Movie

I have been watching Firefly on DVD from Netflix and it totally kicks some major butt. I can't say enough good things about this TV show. I do feel a little "Johnny Come Lately" about this but I just don't care because this show is that good. Case in point I was up till 1:30 am last night because I just had to finish disc 2. Now I have to wait a few days for the next 2 discs to come from Netflix and I'm feeling all nervous and jittery. I'm sure I'll continue to feel weird until they get here. The other thing that is stressing me out is I'm sure the last 2 discs of Firefly will not get to me before the movie comes out this friday so I'll have to wait to see the movie.

I was listening to Rob @ Podcast 411's interview with Evo Tera today at lunch. At the beginning of the podcast Rob was talking about how he was able to see this movie early. I really trust his opinion about most things and his description got me so pumped up about seeing this movie. I guess he is the source of most of my anxiety on this. DAMN YOU ROB!!!! Go see this movie 1, 2 or 12 times.


P.S. Good job FOX for totally fucking up this show and then cancelling it.

Shortest Fairy Tale Ever

Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl, "Will you marry me?"
The girl said, "No."
And the guy lived happily ever after and went golfing, rode his Harley and went fishing a lot.


I'm really sorry there have been so few posts lately but I have been really busy and there hasn't been too much of interest that I have come across.

CAADE Episode 57

Chuck and Adam discuss ninja cats, evolution and inteligent design. Also, all people that believe in God are just pussies. Enjoy the new podcast you fuckers. Sorry it's been so long since we posted a show.


Evolution Schemvolution

Anyone who regularly watches the Daily Show knows that they ran a special last week on the renewed public interest in the century old debate between scientists and biblical literalists.

I won't even say between scientists and creationists or scientists and catholics. I wont' say this because I don't think this debate includes all creationists or all catholics or all christians for that matter. This is really a debate between the community of people who understand and accept evidence based, peer-reviewed scientific findings and those who prefer to believe that a literal translation of the Bible supercedes all other aspects of human knowledge.

Many very intellignet people understand and believe the most current and widely believed theories of cosmology, physics, astronomy, quantum theory, paleontology, archeology and other sciences. Many of these people are able to hold these theories as accurate explanations of their world and still believe in God. This is because science does not exclude God. Current theories do exclude the literal translation of myths written by ancient humans to express their wonder in the belief of an all powerful being, but they do not exclude belief in an all powerful being. It is very common for people who do believe in God and also believe in current scientific theories to find dialogue and commonality between science and religion.

You can believe in the Big Bang and in God. Physicists and cosmologist have no way to explain the singularity which would have existed before the Big Bang at T=0. This is a point where a theist could extrapolate a position for God. You can believe in evolution and in God. Nobody knows how many random mutations would have happened or the probability that those mutations would have created a viable new species. Again, a place where a theist can decide whether it was all chance probability or the work of intelligence.

I won't say that there is anything wrong with religious belief. I don't feel that it is my place to tell someone else whether or not they can or should believe in God. However, I do think it is dumb to exclude important human knowledge in order to maintain belief in a literal translation of an ancient myth. Many of those who want to believe literal translations of the Bible do not even understand the principal ideas of current biblical scholarship. How many Biblical Literalists would even believe that the first chapter of Genesis was written much later than many other parts of the same book after it was more important to fight pantheism, polytheism and the gods of nature than to impress the importance of the God of Israel? It is this lack of knowledge of either science or biblical scholarship that pisses me off. How can someone fight against the ideas of science when they don't understand the scholarship of their own ideas let alone science.

Finally, we now understand that many scientists (Copernicus, Newton, Galileo, Darwin) who were persecuted by the early church made important strides in the advancement of human knowledge. Why then in this day and age would we continue to make attacks on the education of our children based on an irrational fear of the inadequacy of the Bible to explain our world. The next generations must have a thorough understanding of science if we want to continue advancing this society. To allow faith teaching to be delivered as scientific undermines the point of education. Creationist myths have a place and parents who want their children to know them shoud teach them. However, they do not belong in a science class undermining the passing of current knowledge that explains the accumulation of evidence surrounding us.

Intelligent Design proponents would have us believe that science closes the door on religion. It does not. I think I've demonstrated this. However, Intelligent Design opens the door to wild theories. Intelligent Design is not science because it calls for a belief in the supernatural. It leads one to say that when faced with chance or a lack of evidence that chance is in fact the presence of a God or that evidence is not needed because the interaction of the divine takes over. If you accept this as science then a literal interpretation of Biblical events would also have to be taken as science. After all, you don't need evidence just God.

If this is what we want our children to learn about science by all means, allow Intelligent Design in schools. If, on the other hand, we desire for our children to be critical thinkers with an understanding of scientific theory, then teach science in science class and theology somewhere else. Then, they will decide what makes more sense in their lives. Even if we don't agree, at least they will have the tools to make thier own decisions.

If you have made it through my little rant. JB had a great post on her experience being taught about creation in her "cult" check it out.

I get it, New Orleans is FUCKED!

I have had enough people. I don't mean to sound insensitive but I'm tired of anyone and everyone with a fucking blog or website posting shit about the "tragedy." Everyone on the planet has already heard about it and there are plenty of places to find out more information about what is going on down there. I don't need you to remind me or link me to all 500+ articles about the topic. Get a fucking clue you idiots. Half the damn posts that have come up in my feed reader today have been the same shit about the "disaster." Just fuckin quit it already. Everyone who cares already knows and people like me don't care so just stop. PUT THE KEYBOARD DOWN. I might care more about what is happening if everyone and their sister and their brother's whore wasn't going on and one and on about how terrible it is.


I hate myself and now you do too.

This is why I should get fired

I feel really bad that I find this clip of a guy puking his guys out for $500 insanely funny. I know that I shouldn't find it funny. I just can't help myself. I know you will find it funny too.


P.S. I would have licked it up.........

So I have an intimate relationship with fuel costs and have been getting updates today.

In Dallas, TX fuel is now $3.00

In Charlotte, NC fuel went from $2.69 to $3.09 overnite and the governor is considering shutting down all pumps to conserve.

In Atlanta, GA fuel is over $6.00.

This is insane.

I'll keep y'all updated.



PDS in not a disorder recognized by the AMA however, it is real. PDS stands for permanently drunk syndrome.

That is how I feel about 20% of the time lately.

It all started when I went fishing with Adam. I had the wierd sea-legs feeling where everything is moving and rocking even though you are on dry land. It NEVER went away. Not for a whole week. Then it did. Now it comes back once or twice a day.

So I went to the Dr. today. He told me I don't have a brain tumor or anything else "scary or dangerous." So as long as I'm satisfied with that they will call it "undiagnosed vertigo." Cool with me. I don't need to take tons of tests to find out there is some miniscule problem they can't fix and he didn't seem to concerned so cool. Now I have "undiagnosed vertigo" and medication to take for it if I want. However, I still will call it PDS.

I wonder, if I do get really drunk and get the spins, can I take my medication and make them go away? Hmmmm... might have to experiment.

What you doing tonight Adam? Feel like a couple 40's of Mickeys?


Yes, yes I do. Too bad I have to go down to Fry's and try to buy some stuff to fix my laptop. The podcast has to be put on hold till I can get that fucking thing fixed so that has to be my priority. Sorry bro..........

Shit, nevermind, fuck it. When do you want me to come over?
