Your Obligatory Awesome Neil Degrasse Tyson Quote

When is this guy going to just run for office already? "I don't even care if someone wants to say you don't understand that, God did it. That doesn't even bother me. What would bother me is if you were so content in that answer that you no longer had curiosity to learn how it happened. The day you stop looking because you're content God did it I don't need you in the lab. You're useless."

Perfect! To creationists: even if the Darwinists have it all wrong, don't you want to fund research into how exactly God did actually put everything into the world? Into the exact physical mechanisms by which He did it so we can understand it better and really scrutinize it under a microscope? Or does that somehow not feel right to you? (I have never once heard of creationists doing anything but telling people not to believe in evolution. The institutes they set up are publicity organizations.)

What it does seem very much like is that creationists aren't trying to explain anything, but they feel their authority is threatened by the people who are.
