Your dose of humor for today comes from an article by Jonathan Wells on the Discovery Institute website [Alchemy, Marxism, and the future of Darwinism]. With a title like that you can expect a good laugh. Normally these jokes begin with "a priest, a rabbi, and a preacher walked into a bar." But if you're an IDiot you start with "I was talking to a physics student and a biochemistry student ...." Here's the set-up ...
I recently found myself in a conversation with two college undergraduates, both of them seniors in the natural sciences (physics and biochemistry, respectively). At one point we were discussing alchemy, which they knew as a pre-modern attempt to transmute lead into gold. I asked them whether they could name any famous alchemists. They could not, though one of them dimly recalled hearing of “someone whose name began with A.”
I then predicted that Darwinian evolution would eventually fade into the same obscurity that now shrouds alchemy. Although I knew from previous conversations that my young friends were skeptical of Darwinian theory, they expressed considerable surprise at my prediction, if only because Darwinism is presently held in such high esteem by their professors.
So I proceeded to explain the basis for my prediction.
