The Feeble Lance of Reason.
RSR reader BF sends this along from a 1984 article by Isaac Asimov. Seems like the only thing that's changed is that we call them intelligent design theorists now instead of "scientific" creationists.
It is religion that recruits their squadrons. Tens of millions ofAmericans, who neither know nor understand the actual arguments for or even against evolution, march in the army of the night with their Bibles held high. And they are a strong and frightening force, impervious to, and immunized against, the feeble lance of mere reason.
