Fun Friday: What Century Are We In?

Burn him! Burn him!

Creepy Sickos

First, we have Karl Malone, who knocked up a 12 or 13-year-old. Why has this not gotten a "Roger Clemens" level of press?

Next, we have Ben Stein. You know, Ferris Bueller's teacher, former Nixon speechwriter, game-show participant, and star of the new anti-evolution movie Expelled. Ben Stein said this:

When we just saw that man, I think it was Mr. Myers [i.e. biologist P.Z. Myers], talking about how great scientists were, I was thinking to myself the last time any of my relatives saw scientists telling them what to do they were telling them to go to the showers to get gassed ... that was horrifying beyond words, and that's where science -- in my opinion, this is just an opinion -- that's where science leads you.

I think that further comment is unnecessary.

Lastly, we have the top 50 searches at Conservapedia. Conservapedia is, of course, the conservative alternative to Wikipedia. You know, just in case you want to read about people riding around on dinosaurs. Those searching for answers at Conservapedia seem to be focused on one topic in particular.
