The Darwin Awards: RSR's Nominations for 2007

As you may imagine, RSR is a big fan of the Darwin Awards, that wonderful chronicle of enterprising self-destruction that salutes the improvement of the species by honoring those who accidentally remove themselves from it, thereby ensuring that the next generation is one idiot smarter.

The 2006 winners were announced recently. They include a minister who believed his faith would allow him to walk on water. The Rev., a non-swimmer, failed but went to his final reward: everlasting fame as a 2006 Darwin Awards finalist.

As with the good Rev., the award is, of necessity, generally bestowed posthumously.

RSR has been so taken by the awards, that we fully intended to make our own nominations for this year’s contest. Our own candidates would have included nearly the entire cast of the hit television series, “24.”

Well, time got away from us and we didn’t submit the “24” cast as candidates for the 2006 awards, but we want to get a jump on next year by making our 2007 nominations now.

RSR nominates those who not only want to take themselves out, they want to talk all the rest of us with them. Of course I’m talking about all the creation “scientists” and intelligent design “theorists” who doubt HIV as the cause of AIDS, doubt the reality of global warming, and doubt the theory of evolution – on which the testing of drugs in animals is based.
