What sort of advanced technology do antievolutionists prefer today? In Monroe County, Michigan, the technology of choice is a brick.

Quote

A man waving a brick barged into Monroe Middle School and ranted about the teachings of evolution before being arrested by police Tuesday morning.

[...]

"The best part is, no students were in danger," Mr. McLeod said. "Fortunately for us, he came right into the office. It's pretty obvious he was kind of disturbed."

I blame Pink Floyd and postmodernism.

Clearly he thought that the idea of waving a brick was equal to studying history,biology,chemistry,physics and mathematics.

Steve Fuller would have been proud.

he was really a crazed ex-biologist, driven insane by the ramblings of nutters like AFDave.  He was just trying to demonstrate that ID is for folks who are dumb as bricks, when suddenly, something went horribly wrong...

poor guy.

Stevestory,

Ok one new laptop please. My morning coffee is currently adorning my pc.

Oh and everyone, I don't buy this "intelligently designed brick" lie of the anti-evolutionists. I can personally supply anyone with a wide variety of naturally occuring intermediate forms between brick and its last common ancestor with humans, clay.*

Not only that but the common household brick (Brickus brickus) is an excellent example of observable evolution and speciation, with clay turning into brick taking mere hours, a more wonderous transformation than dog to lizard, the creationist's favourite example of evolution. It also shows a gain in function and fitness (how many houses are made from clay as opposed to brick?).

Habeat brickum, habeat mundi.

Nonsense.  If humans came from bricks, why are there still bricks?

No no, you see what happened was that bricks co-evolved alongside us as part of the final clinching proof for the non existance of god. After all it's totally impossible that something so fantastically useful as a brick would evolve purely by chance. So that proves god exists, proof destroys faith, and without faith god is nothing.

P.S. Apologies to Douglas Adams. Ohhh look is that a zebra crossing?

*This comes from my all time favourite Latin verb** ferro: I bring, bear or carry. It's so irregular it might as well be an English word! Ferro Ferre Tuli Latus sum, I bring, to bring, I will bring, I have brought. Ahhhhh Latin.

** I suppose I have now outed myself as someone who has a favourite Latin verb. Since it's an irregular one I suppose this also says far too much about my aberrant psychology. The only depth I could plumb that's deeper than this is to have devised my own Latin motto as a child.***

I just ran that through the crappy latin translator I used above (first one I found on Google, no idea how good it is - I never took Latin) and here's what it just spewed back...

to come vidi thin skin manfully

[EDIT - I was actually going for "I saw, I conquered, she came."]

Lou,

Well you said vidi vici venis I saw, I conquered, I guess it's a penis!;)

I was merely putting your alter ego's desires into better Latin: I came, I saw a man's dangly parts.

I saw, I conquered, she came (vidi, vici, venit) is the way to go.

Our Latin was not as good as yours.  We used

Not to mention Nil illegitimus carborundum

As always, it's impossible to project tone through text. That's why braindead creationists always feel the NEED to go to CAPS and boldface. But I think my comment is funniest if read as Eddie Izzard would read it. ;-)
