His creationist friend is actually riffing off of David Klinghoffer (professional shill for Discovery Institute) posts for Evolution News and Views, a DI blog.

I'm not sure I could keep a "creationist friend" as such. I know not everyone is gifted with high intelligence or an unblurred lens through which to view reality, but I don't think I could tolerate the regular company of someone so aggressively stupid.

I've always thought that Alien was a mashup of the stories and critters in A.E. Van Vogt's "The Voyage of the Space Beagle"... a pro evolution SF compilation.

For me, the real delight is the "intelligent" in "Intelligent Design."

The gallbladder, the appendix, wisdom teeth and man-nipples should be enough to get a rousing discussion going with ANY member of the ID-in-the-classroom-or-bust crowd.

Really. Let's DO have a discussion about just how "intelligent" those things are within a design framework. Please.

Panspermia? Seriously? I guess it's no sillier than Godspermia, but to say it's "scientifically possible" is a stretch.

re: #5 funky chicken

I agree. It's just a form of kicking of the can. Yet, panspermia is not impossible and in some solar systems in which two planets can harbor life it would be possible for a piece of rock (thrown up by say a meteorite impact) to move microbes from one planet to another.

Unless one comes up with positive evidence that the precursors of life arrived here from elsewhere, I think it's more akin to "giving up".

Here you go, Neil deGrass Tyson ripping into ID by renaming it Stupid Design:

Taken from a presentation he did at Beyond Belief 2006 called the Perimeter of Ignorance:

Oh, and BTW, Neil will be hosting the reboot of Cosmos, to be shown on the channel with the audience that is in the most need of a Science education.
