Funny Scientists

I found this at the Lehigh University Department of Biological Sciences site:

Department Position on Evolution and "Intelligent Design"
The faculty in the Department of Biological Sciences is committed to the highest standards of scientific integrity and academic function. This commitment carries with it unwavering support for academic freedom and the free exchange of ideas. It also demands the utmost respect for the scientific method, integrity in the conduct of research, and recognition that the validity of any scientific model comes only as a result of rational hypothesis testing, sound experimentation, and findings that can be replicated by others.
The department faculty, then, are unequivocal in their support of evolutionary theory, which has its roots in the seminal work of Charles Darwin and has been supported by findings accumulated over 140 years. The sole dissenter from this position, Prof. Michael Behe, is a well-known proponent of “intelligent design.” While we respect Prof. Behe's right to express his views, they are his alone and are in no way endorsed by the department. It is our collective position that intelligent design has no basis in science, has not been tested experimentally, and should not be regarded as scientific.

How sad for this man that his own co-workers don't like him.

Actually, it's ridiculous. He's a better and smarter biochemist than any of the other faculty, too.

Ummmm......just in case you missed it, my original post was supposed to be sarcastic. This guy's an idiot of the first order. ANYONE who supports intelligent design as science is an idiot of the first order.
