It is not unexpected that McLaren would get off scot-free. Heh. There is really too much money involved.
So much Scientific Proof in favour of Evolution

Wei Yi just sent an article on what Pope Benedict XVI has spoken on evolution and creationism:

"LORENZAGO DI CADORE, Italy - Pope Benedict XVI said the debate raging in some countries — particularly the United States and his native Germany — between creationism and evolution was an “absurdity,” saying that evolution can coexist with faith."


He knows that physical laws are there and should not be denied by some closed-minded bible-thumpers in the US midwest:

"Benedict also said the human race must listen to “the voice of the Earth” or risk destroying its very existence."

"“We all see that today man can destroy the foundation of his existence, his Earth,” he said in a closed door meeting with 400 priests on Tuesday. "


He acknowledges the overwhelming proof:

" “This clash is an absurdity because on one hand there is much scientific proof in favor of evolution, which appears as a reality that we must see and which enriches our understanding of life and being as such.”"

Benedict XVI, at this point, appears to be one of the more educated and enlightened religious leaders in years. Meanwhile, fundamentalists of all stripes continue to thump their chests.

CONGRATULATIONS SIU HEAN!

Siu Hean is the Chump! He's finally done it! He won the national championships for his word game, Scrabble! He's the Word-Master now! WOO HOO!

It must do wonders for his world rankings!

In the great Chump's own words:

"I have finished 2nd five times and 3rd twice. And picked up two Aussie national titles along the way. Finally I have won my own nationals. "


Well deserved! He has tried really hard and worked really hard for his cause over the years. BRAVO!
