A Modest Proposal

A thought just struck me. Do people of the "Intelligent Design" ilk get flu shots or other vaccinations? I mean, if evolution is just an unproven theory, then getting flu shots full of rapidly mutated but weakened viruses every year would be worthless - I mean wouldn't prayer be more efficacious since natural selection could not produce flu viruses increasingly resistant to vaccine?

As such I propose that every medical treatment that derives from some concepts aligned to evolution should be labelled as such for these people - then they can make a considered decision whether God's Intelligent Design wants them to get better.

I concur. If they are going to put stickers in school textbooks that warn about evolution, then they should be putting warning stickers on everything else that might in some way endorse evolution.

For example, since human DNA shares 97% of its information with chimpanzee DNA, its very existence suggests that evolution might be true. I therefore submit that anything containing human DNA, including humans, should bear a sticker identifying it as potentially contradictory to the ideas of intelligent design. This is the only way that we can protect ourselves from new ideas that have been around since the 19th century and which are overwhelmingly favored by all available scientific evidence.

Note to self: buy a sticker factory ASAP.

Yeah, what's with God re-using 97% of the DNA of chimps for humans? I mean, was he phoning it in during all this creation business?

Angel Minion: God? Excuse me, but we're late on the man and woman prototype and production is beginning on the fifth day. Can you give me some feel on where you're going to go with this?

God: distracted Hmm...what...Say, have you seen the Easter Egg on the 27th level of Super Mario Brothers, awesome...

Angel Minion: ?

God: Oh, yes, the humans. Hmmm...didn't we just do those monkey things? Hell, why don't we just tart up what we did with them, lose some hair, make 'em look a little like yours truly and call it a day? Sounds good to me! Now if I can only get that damn mushroom that Lucifer says he can get to in one jump, damn him.

I like the idea that God had Super Mario Brothers at the beginning of time and created Man in His image so that we might one day develop the game on our own. Once we achieved that, he pretty much lost interest.

Also, did He develop Mario Bros. first, or did he jump straight to Super Mario Bros.?
