This is from NewsBusters "Los Angeles Times Continues Slam of Intelligent Design"

It's pure Discovery Institute propaganda.  

Comical.

That is a severely repellent website in general, tho it's nice to see that someone at the LA Times really seems to have it in for ID.
:p

Odd, too, since the LA Times editorial page took a hard rightwing turn recently and they hired a lot of idiots. So I'd expect much more 'teach the controversy and let the kids decide for themselves' nonsense.

I caught that one this morning too and I posted it over at pandas thumb "I do not think that word means..." (My all time favorite movie. Shoulda looked here first I guess. My favorite quote:

It is yet another example of how the Times often seems incapable of fairly addressing both sides of a controversial issue. Some of the Times' articles have asserted that intelligent design is "not science" and have suggested that it is basically "creationism" under a different name. Both propositions are simply false. (See readings below.)


One side claimes that liquid will stratify according to density and one side claims that it won't. Both propositions are simply false. ;)

Sorry to say, yes it's real. It's been up there, and with almost no visitors, ever since his 'other career' became common knowledge.

It's mystifying to me how such a ridiculous person can take himself so seriously, but he's nowhere near interesting enough to stick around and find out.

That place has more cranks and wingnuts than Uncommon Dissent.

Shocking.

They seem especially enraged that the situation in Iraq is increasingly being called a 'civil war'. I guess their position is that if the violence in Iraq was ignored and the term 'civil war' was never used, this would indicate a 'lack of bias' and everything over there would be wonderful.

Naaaah, they're too busy gloating over the fact that a movie about a same-sex love affair didn't win this year's Academy Award for Best Picture.  (Don't remind them that the film that did win had a story line that addressed racism.  They'll get all riled.)
