Sir David Attenborough splats creationists

So you believe in a benign and loving god, do you? Attenborough says he's asked all the time why he doesn't give credit to God:

"They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds.

"I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in East Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball.

"The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs.

"I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator."

And this quote should be carved in a mountain someplace:

"Evolution is not a theory; it is a fact, every bit as much as the historical fact that William the Conqueror landed in 1066."

POTUS gets pwnd

International newspapers take their parting shots at President Bush.

"A weak leader, Bush was just overwhelmed in the job," said Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung under a headline: "The Failure." "He confused stubbornness with principles. America has become intolerant and it will take a long time to repair that damage."
What do you mean, has become intolerant? You haven't been paying close attention, have you?

Good riddance. Be sure to use the disinfectant liberally.

Quote of the Day

"I know the Pope’s not a Nazi any more but his hobby these days is to hang on balconies giving speeches to adoring, chanting throngs, so he hasn’t moved that far.”

Prosecute Bush/Cheney

Anyone who supports the job Bush has done on the "war on terror" in his administration needs to read this outstanding summary by Joe Klein of Time. And I hope they have the guts to view the photographs in the links at the bottom.
