No More Mr. Nice Guy

Phil Plait over at the Bad Astronomy blog is mad as hell and he's not going to take it any more -- the creationist and intelligent design attacks on physics and cosmology, that is. (Actually, Phil has been commenting regularly on the evolution controversy for some time now. He coined the term "anti-science" for the intelligent design "theorists" that RSR has been shamelessly using lately.)

Here at RSR we suspect that it was "The Privileged Planet" dust up that pushed Phil over the edge. Here's what he says:
"Over the course of time, you’ll be seeing more rebuttals — no, debunking — of creationist claims here. I’ve had enough, and this threat is real. They want to turn our classrooms in a theocratically-controlled anti-science breeding ground, and I’m not going to sit by and watch it happen."

Wander over and take a look. By the way, P.S. Meyers at Pharyngula has a nice post up about Phil's throwing down of the gauntlet. Let's hope more and more scientists follow Phil's example.
