Riding the dinosaur

Riding the dinosaur
“It’s based on a false premise, that complexity cannot self-organize, which is in fact not true,” says geology professor David Schwimmer of Columbus State University.

How do we know this?

“Well, all you have to do is pick up a snowflake,” he says. “Complexity is spontaneous. Crystals form naturally, or molecules arrange themselves spontaneously.”

Intelligent design is the lab coat creationism wears to sneak into a science class. The courts won’t let it ride in on a dinosaur. Judges say no matter what you call it, belief in a deity is a religion, not a science. So there’ll be no dinosaur rides in biology class, and that’s a shame. The kids would love that.
