It's a dirty, dangerous job, but somebody has to do it

In the course of a lifetime of fossil hunting, Tim White, a professor at the University of California-Berkeley, has contracted malaria, as well as giardia, dysentery, hepatitis and pneumonia, according to a report, "Discovering fossils can be difficult and dangerous," by Charles Matthews in the San Jose Mecury-News.

Naturally, after reading this, we were concerned for the safety of intelligent design researchers, who we've learned from reading the "Wedge Strategy" plan to launch a scientific research program someday... soon...

Accordingly, we made a quick check to acertain the health of signatories to the Discovery Institute's much vaunted list of scientists who doubt Darwin.

You can relax. They are all safe and sound. No one has yet been injured by falling headlong into one of the famous gaps in the fossil record.

There has been a disturbing incidence of paper cuts, however.
