You know our motto here at Kung Fu Monkey: "Everybody who wants to live in the 21st Century over here. Everybody who wants to live in the 1800's over there. Good. Thanks. Good luck with that."
Every now and then, when I go off on intelligent design, some people I ordinarily consider bright will say "Come on, you don't know what the truth is. And shouldn't we teach all the theories?" it is very very hard not to punch these people at this moment -- but I do not, because I must remember that such a statement reflects, with all due respect, complete and utter ignorance of how science works. Or even what science is.
Not that these people are stupid, no, not by any means. But this is the exact equivalent of me standing behind my car mechanic, hood up, and saying "well, you know, just make it go way faster. And just convert it over to the switchgrass stuff." Although I understand the general concepts behind internal combustion and the four stroke engine, I still don't know what the fuck I'm talking about.
Annnnnyway, nice interview here with one of the expert witnesses at the Dover trial, interesting not just for how she clearly and patiently explains how ID is a sham, but she does so by also very clearly and patiently explaining what science is, along with some very good points on why politicizing science is a bad thing.
