I have given up reading emails about [Intelligent Design]. Same applies, btw, to emails about flying saucers, Martian canals, the hollow earth, Atlantis, telepathy, dianetics, unicorns, phrenology, astrology, orgonomy, alien abductions, Bridey Murphy, the location of Noah’s ark, the fate of the Marie Celeste’s crew, and whether or not the bishops of the Church of England should open Joanna Southcott’s box. I do not wish to know any more than I currently know about any of these topics. If you believe in one, many, or all of them, I’m fine with it, and wish you joy of your belief — just don’t try to enlist me. And please don’t try to dump any of this stuff into my kids’ school science curriculum.
