I find it hard to believe that someone with such a thoughtful and nuanced election site would turn out to be a complete kook. [Link: www.fiscusforthepeople.com...]

It looks like he had the 10 year old down the street design that for him. The American flag GIFs don't match and none of the buttons (which obscure a line of text) even work.

No matter what the national GOP pretends to be, the loons at the local level will always show what the party is really all about.

Gawd, people are still using FrontPage?? I haven't seen one of those in a while, but recognized it right away. Checked the source code--sure enough, FP 5.0, heh.

Upding because I have no clue what you are talking about. ;-)

a 2005 federal case that found the theory to be a form of creationism.

A minor quibble. There is no such thing as the scientific theory of intelligent design, nor is there any such thing as the scientific theory of creationism.

From the American Association for the Advancement of Science:

A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment. Such fact-supported theories are not "guesses" but reliable accounts of the real world. The theory of biological evolution is more than "just a theory." It is as factual an explanation of the universe as the atomic theory of matter or the germ theory of disease. Our understanding of gravity is still a work in progress. But the phenomenon of gravity, like evolution, is an accepted fact.

You can call "ID" a superstition or a belief based solely on faith, but you can't call it a scientific theory, since it meets exactly zero of the criteria a theory requires. For that reason it has no place in a science classroom.

Welcome Hatchling. :)

If your doing a sarcastic post and don't want people to be confused and perhaps take you seriously then use the "sarc tags" to let them know. This prevents misunderstandings and needless crosstalk between people that actually agree with each other. We all use slash marks as our "sarc tags" on LGF.

If you say something only mildly in jest use one slash after your text.

/

If your saying something outrageous then feel free to use up to three.

Anyway, welcome to LGF.
