I met a visiting fugitive from the failed democracy of Australia, an erstwhile philosopher by the name of Willikins or Wilks or something (I didn’t catch the name, being attacked by predators as I was at the time). He has a description of the event at his blog.

I suspect Bill Dembski, the Fig Newton of Information Theory and torturer of stuffed action figures, will enjoy that Smilodon photo.

I for one am shocked that Wilkins would use you to distract that Smilodon so he could get away!

Dr. Dino sez if you pull off those nasty T. rex arms, they’ll bleed to death. Just get your little paw around that arm and give it a good yank.

But wouldn’t you then have to worry about Mr. Rex breathing fire on you? He wouldn’t bleed to death instantly, you know…

No, T. Rexes were vegitarians, remember. He was just showing Prof. Steve Steve where to find the tastiest bamboo.

A fire breathing T-rex? I know Kent Hovind is stupid, but he isn’t seriously this stupid is he?

Hovind: “Before you become excited, let me tell you the four reasons that I believe in fire-breathing dragons. My first reason why I believe in fire-breathing dragons is that the Bible plainly states it as fact.”

Well, at least he gets the walnut-sized brain right.

Except he attributes that brain size to the T Rex, instead of himself.

Look at the text in the bottom left of the picture so generously supplied by Bruce- right under Mr. Rex’s tail. Dr. Dino created, er, intelligently designed that restaurant placemat.

Just out of curiosity, since he gets to call himself “DR.” without any real degree, does that mean I can call myself whatever I want? I’ve always wanted to be a knight…

Professor Steve Steve, did they have eucalyptus sliders as well as the White Castle variety? I hear sliders are especially tasty when accompanied by Scientia et Fermentum.

Next time, invite the Grand Quartermaster of Delta Pi Gamma (the Darwin Pressure Group), he has a nifty new vehicle to drive everyone around in. Too, how nice to meet 7-time Nobel Laureate Nominee Dr. Eugenie Scott. Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all, including the Smilodon.

“…failed democracy of Australia,…”

It’s true, but the guy who has done a great deal to help it fail recently, only cut his teeth here; he moved on to greener pastures some time ago. Also, AiG seems to suggest that we are the world largest per capita producer or fruitcakes: we only make…you buy them ;-).

Sorry about the ongoing hassle with grammar, punctuation, spelling/typos, ect…
My eyesight is extremely bad (ocular albinism: first-class piece of @#$%^&* engineering that is)
That in combination with the fact that —out of what I must suppose was an act of genuine kindness- because of the poor eyesight, the nuns taught me to type long before they realised their efforts would be better spent beating me, leaves us here: me typing at ridiculous speeds and not really seeing what I’m typing.

Yeah, the eye, real marvel of design there, considering that a quarter or so of people need glasses, 5 percent are colorblind, etc.

I think ID stands for Incompetent Design.

Delta Pi Gamma shortens quite nicely to Delta PiG, which also suggests a logo.

I would recommend FCD.

Good idea, and done.

From snaxalotl in Comment #39682:

“Delta Pi Gamma shortens quite nicely to Delta PiG, which also suggests a logo.”

But Delta Pi Gamma already has a logo, a panda surfing a PT Cruiser, that is, if the University of Ediacara will share Pr. Steve Steve with us.
