This has to be a joke.  IC?  And you picked the eye and the flagellum as examples, both of which have been explained very well?  Come on....  And lack of intermediate fossils?  Really?  I am not going to take this post seriously.

"Many objective and verified experiments"

NewtonFan, Oh dear. I wonder how these objective and verified experiments were conducted. Because I, a decent, non-insane human being, would not set up a double blind controlled trial of hundreds of people - where half of the people would be almost killed. Furthermore, I wouldn't have cameras and microphones recording everything that went on in the building, especially the waiting rooms, with all those worried relatives in there.

Oh wait. Silly me. Your 'objective' and 'verified' 'experiments' don't do anything like this. They're just anecdotal garbage.

I figure if he wins, he'll end up losing in the long run. This case will just make it more likely that the Illinois Constitution will be altered to allow for the funding of religious schools.

Roland, while I agree with your point about political correctness, come on now. Considering how often some new fangled 'discovery' turns out to be bunk, isn't it a wise idea to be skeptical here? Especially when there are studies stating how men with rounder faces are more preferred by women during much of their menstrual cycle (which many of those scientists have argued is because such men seem more dependable, more willing to stick around to raise a child)?

Your complaining would be justified if this particular claim of wide face bias was studied extensively and had no studies contradicting it.
