Intelligent Design humour

It is easy to poke fun at the nonsense of “Intelligent Design” and the Now Show (01/12/2006) (around 16:30 into the program if you don't want to listen to the whole thing) do it brilliantly, should be online for 7 days

Yup, they did a very nice job on that - how to get an A\* when the only right answer is "dunno, mate, and we can't know either". Mind you, what really cracks me up about the whole Intelligent Design piece is that while it is intrinsically theistic in premise, it is far from being monotheistic. After all, aren't most human endeavours in science and engineering based on a number of folk working in collaboration? If you get some Intelligent Design bigot arguing that their thesis indicates that "their" God created the Universe, propose that there may well have been collaboration involved and they only have "their" God's word for it that there aren't any others anyway, and watch their brain pop :-).

Very nice indeed - and the ID stuff is about 16:00 into the show; at 16:30 you'll miss the best bits.
