Baseball as proof of Intelligent Design
As Michael Behe has recently shown, if the Red Sox play the White Sox four times, the Red Sox will win three games and the White Sox will win one, but the White Sox will manage to score in two of the three games they lose. However, if the Red Sox play the White Sox in Japan at four o’clock, the Red Sox will win one, the White Sox will win one, and a “hybrid” team of Pink Sox will take two, throwing the whole concept of “playoffs” into turmoil.
There’s no way this could happen by accident. It must be evidence of Design.
Women we heart
Please send some love to Twisty Faster, world-class patriarchy-blamer and all-around rapier wit. And some cash to Shakespeare’s Sister, who could really use the help. And some applause to Julia, who (for Jonathan Alter’s benefit) solves the mystery of just how things got so bad in the nation’s capital.
