Intelligent Choice?

Posted by Ryan on October 10, 2006

Intelligent design was smacked down again, this time in Michigan. Of course, the article misrepresents Michael J. Behe, Larry Witham and William A. Dembski‘s idea that Darwin’s concept of natural selection has serious intellectual and observable, logical scientific fallacies. Behe does not overtly support God as the reason for everything, but he does note, as Einstein and others have noted, that there is an order to the way things work in the universe, and that this order in undeniable in the face of statistical probability. Also, you can support evolution, but reject Darwinism. They are not mutually exclusive. Reading Annie C‘s new book and her section on this issue and its unnecessary political impact.

Torre’s sticking around! Steinbrenner’s not giving him the ax. I actually heard that firing Torre and replacing him with Piniella was a real, honest-to-goodness joke!

Whereas I do believe in accountability and generally support the standard put forth by the phrase “What have you done for me lately?”, I also think that potentially axing Torre would have been a bit extreme. He did win a number of World Series with them and they have been a perennial playoff team during most of his tenure.
