" . . .the Arguments of Insects"

This is a great post by
I ran across this opinion piece by Clyde Berg of Lebanon, Missouri in the Springfield News-Leader this morning. It's unusual insofar as its written by a Christian who accepts biological evolution but doesn't understand what the theory contains and pushes back the god in the god-of-the-gaps argument to the beginning of time. He goes on to explain his doing so as arising from a lack of mental capacity, which is at least an honest way of presenting an argument from ignorance. Unfortunately for Clyde, he wants to extend his own lack of mental capacity to all of humanity.
I found this via my friend Jimmer who pointed to Dana Hunter's "Carnival of the Elitist Bastards". Take time to read some of the articles in the Carnival...very good writing.
