No sign of intelligence

Famed for his innovative diagnosis of Terri Schiavo’s condition, “Dr.” Bill Frist is now applying the same scientific rigor to intelligent design:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Echoing similar comments from President Bush, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said “intelligent design” should be taught in public schools alongside evolution.
Frist, a Republican from Tennessee, spoke to a Rotary Club meeting Friday and told reporters afterward that students need to be exposed to different ideas, including intelligent design.
“I think today a pluralistic society should have access to a broad range of fact, of science, including faith,” Frist said.
Frist, a doctor who graduated from Harvard Medical School, said exposing children to both evolution and intelligent design “doesn’t force any particular theory on anyone. I think in a pluralistic society that is the fairest way to go about education and training people for the future.”

Absolutely. Which is why schoolkids should also be taught about the Flying Spaghetti Monster—which, as we all know, actually did create the universe—and the Invisible Pink Unicorn.
