  1. I assume that was sarcastic — but I actually think that really was the most ridiculous statement about the creationism/evolution “debate” that I’ve seen made by a moderator (but obviously not a creationism proponent!)

  2. Another facepalm — of course what makes it easy to get away with saying such statements before people who don’t know much about evolution is that it has the cheap trick of making the speaker seem intellectual. It’s the same trick as saying “it’s certainly not black and white” which generates the cached thought of “profound idea” even if it’s not applicable in this case. I can’t believe Scott has been doing this for so long without losing it and going ballistic even once — I think she needs to be canonised as a secular saint.
