### Entropy, creationism, and intellectual conservatives

Prof. Myers' title for a recent article at a web site called, "Intellectual Conservative" was just so funny that I had to write this "me too". His title is "Babu G. Ranganathan: goddamned moron". The article starts off:

Very few scientists have considered or pondered the implications of the law of entropy upon the theory of evolution.

This is the equivalent of saying, "Very few scientists have considered or pondered the implications of centrifugal force upon the theory of a spherical earth." Stupid in so many ways, it's hard to know where to begin. At least we have a concrete definition of what "intellectual conservative" means.
