Intelligent design and popular culture: Darwin activism hits Toronto
|May 8, 2007||Posted by O'Leary under Intelligent Design|
I was out doing errands today, and what do you know? The Toronto city parking pay kiosks in my neighbourhood were plastered with signs advertising, “Intelligent Design: War on Science”, and a whole bunch of other stuff we should supposedly all rush down to see at the Brunswick Theatre.
Yeah really. Intelligent designÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s war on science? How about: CreepsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ war on public property? ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s more like it!
If anyone catches these people, they should be made to remove all that stuff at their own trouble and expense. If they canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t afford regular advertising, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most likely because their cause isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t popular. Unpopularity does not give them a right to deface public property.
Or am I whistling down the wind here? Is the point that DarwinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s brownshirts can do whatever they please?
Also, recently at the Mindful Hack, OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢LearyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s blog on neuroscience issues:
Does quantum physics really say goodbye to reality?
The weak point of mysticism
Does advanced technology mean loss of spirituality? Not that you would notice.
