Confused by all this talk about intelligent design? Micro- versus macroevolution? Memphian Jim Derych in Confessions of a Former Dittohead (due in mid-April) says it’s all a matter of time. “Microevolution is observable and scientifically provable,” Derych writes. “[And] since [the proponents of intelligent design] can’t prove that microevolution doesn’t exist (because there’s proof to the contrary), followers of ID instead draw the line at macroevolution.”

Huh?

Derych clarifies: “[Macroevolution] is basically the idea that Monday’s pond scum is Tuesday’s Tom DeLay."

Got it.
