Creationism....not in Minnesota!

PZ Myers of the Pharyngula blog had his op-ed published in Minneapolis Star Tribune today. An excellent article, well worth reading.

Unfortunately, due to the stupid "he said/she said" journalistic instinct to provide so-called "balance", the Star Tribune also published a typically dishonest piece by an Intelligent Design Creationist Dave Eaton.

The paper is asking for Letters to the Editor on the whole question, so pitch in, write something short and incisive to thwart the efforts to teach superstition in public schools:

An invitation to readers on ID/evolution.
We're interested in your thoughts on intelligent design, evolution, and their proper places in school curricula. Write us an e-mail of no more than 150 words and send it to, with the word "evolution" in the subject line. Be sure to include your name, address and telephone number so we can contact you if we decide to publish your response. Please reply by Monday, May 2.
