Bill Maher on Teaching Both Sides

Science has a new, and very effective supporter in Bill Maher, the host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." Here's Maher on Intelligent Design from the Aug. 19th show:

"Now, President Bush recently suggested that public schools should teach intelligent design, alongside the theory of evolution. Because, after all, evolution is quote, "just a theory." Then the President renewed his vow to drive the terrorists straight over the edge of the earth... "

"It just seems pathetic to be so insecure about your biological superiority, to a group of feces-flinging, rouge-buttocked monkeys, that you have to make up fairy tales. Like we came from Adam and Eve, and then cover stories for Adam and Eve like, intelligent design. Yeah, leaving the Earth in the hands of two naked teenagers. That's a real intelligent design... "

"I'm sorry, folks, but it may very well may be that life is just a series of random events. And that there is no... master plan. But enough about Iraq . Let me instead restate my thesis. There aren't necessarily two sides to every issue. If there were, the Republicans would have an opposition party... "

"And finally New Rule: You don't have to teach both sides of a debate, if one side is a load of crap... "

Thanks to RSR reader Bill F. for sending the transcipt along.
