Evolution = end of the constitution

This may quite simply be the most absurd, silly and disingenuous creationist argument ever. Like in the whole 4,000 year history of the Earth.

Carpetbagger writes: "Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Forum published its latest attack on evolution this week with one argument that left me shaking my head — and reaching for the Tylenol [although Peek readers know not to reach for Tylenol when afflicted by stupidity-related headaches]."


Evolutionists claim that their battle against creation-science is primarily a "scientific" issue, not a constitutional question. But our treasured U. S. Constitution is written by persons and for persons. If man is an animal, the Constitution was written by animals and for animals. This preposterous conclusion destroys the Constitution. The Aguillard Humanists leave us with no Constitution and no constitutional rights of any kind if they allow us to teach only that man is an animal.
These subtle and dangerous attacks on God Himself and the Constitution must be repelled.
Unless this is an elaborate joke to reinforce the idea that we are, indeed, animals (and not too much smarter than your average flatworm), this is some amazing stuff that should keep the Onion in business until the end of days -- tentatively scheduled for March '08. (Carpetbagger)
