Royal Society: Schools should show creationism 'respect'

Christopher Boomer

Reverse Engineering

Let's give Creationism it's "respect".

Those who do believe in Intelligent Design will in future be sent to Reverse Engineering classes where they will be taught Physics, Chemistry and Biology with all their implications and contradictions.

These classes will be evidence based, using our feeble tools and minds.

Then we send them to Truth classes where they will learn Judaism, Buddhism and Pastafarianism with all their implications and contraditions.

These classes will be evidence based, using our feeble tools and minds.

Then we'll send them to History classes where they can learn how to balance evidence and give them the tools they need to make up their own feeble minds.

Tiscali hits 'undo' after bandwidth throttling chokes iTunes

I had to do a hefty download from a server last Thursday and was appalled that it took 4.5 hours. I guess that means it will take all day to return it.

Ho hum. Looks like my days at f2s are numbered too. If the standard of service is falling to Tiscali levels, I may as well use Sky and have the TV thrown in.

These things are inside your firewall. The enemy within!

PANIC! Run to the pills!
