The Evil Solution

This is Denise Martin:

Denise is the self-pitying, femulleted "Survivor" contestant who told everyone that she was a $7/hour lunch lady, and when she got back home after the show's taping wrapped up, the meanie-bad school district she worked for demoted her to janitor duty. The school district received hate mail from all over the world - thousands of emails and letters. "Why would you persecute this poor woman who obviously doesn't have enough money for a mirror?" and the like.

Of course, it turns out that Denise is a lying cunt, she requested a PROMOTION to full-time custodian (paying her more than double than her lunch-ladying) BEFORE she left to tape the show, and the school district granted her EVERY ACCOMMODATION POSSIBLE so she could compete on "Survivor" and jump right back into her job upon her return.

It turns out that - surprise - the great unwashed masses generally fail to investigate situations thoroughly before they fire off angry emails decrying this world's horrible injustices. Such is the case with OneNewsNow's braintrust of readers, who weighed in on the curioous case of Nathaniel Abraham:

Nathaniel Abraham is a well-known biologist who was hired by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution because of his expertise on Zebra fish. However, in 2004 Abraham lost his job shortly after he mentioned in a casual conversation with his supervisor that he did not believe in evolution.

In an interview with The Boston Globe, Abraham stated that his supervisor appeared "angry" after the conversation. He claims he was then given the ultimatum to believe evolution or lose his job. Abraham is now suing Woods Hole for half a million dollars for violating his civil rights.

Ignoring for a moment that Nathaniel is actually a "completely unknown" biologist (must have just been a typo) ... THOSE BASTARDS! How could they? Here's some righteous indignation from the ONN choir:

Go get 'em!

I wonder why there is not a public outcry of bigotry on behalf of this evolutionist employer?

You know full well there would have been national attention if the roles had been reversed...

Reversed how? An evolutionary scientist applies for a job at the Creationist Museum and his application is declined? Whoa, there's some page one schizznit. Right on, Chris!

So, we have another Gallileo that refuses to throw his brain out the window and accept a flat earth as it were. I pray to the God that created us all that this man wins every dollar and more. Evolution is the Evil Solution to creation.

When the hell did Galileo get co-opted by evangelical Christians? That's like when conservative Republicans invoke Abraham Lincoln. "We are the party of LINCOLN, who fought to have slaves freed from people whose political beliefs mirror mine exactly..."

If we're being logical and legal about this and not throwing around junk science, there is absolutely no evidence to support the "theory of evolution" at all. The more scientists try to prove the evolution theory, the more they prove the Bible is correct. Them's the facts, man. Get used to it.

SHIT! I have been pWned! into submission by Sharon Bolling's airtight argument and mad rhetorical skillz! I give up.

What we see today is the same DNA found in humans for thousands of years. What we do see is that DNA revealing more of its complexity. God made us capable of surviving our environment. What makes evolution such a problem is that the claims of clarity are not clear at all. In fact some are out right stretches of the imagination. And then it’s called science?

Tell Jerry Falwell that God made humans capable of evolving and see what kind of response you get - he'll call you a homo and damn you to hell. Oh wait he can't - that fat racist fuck is dead.

Regardless, I have to say that I have not seen a lyrically crafted turn of phrase like "the claims of clarity are not clear at all" since Sammy Hagar crooned "only time will tell if we stand the test of time." Fooking genius, Mike!

Again we see discrimination because someone chooses to disagree with "Unproven Science- "Evolution"....

Ah, yes ... discrimination. Well, if we are to believe everything that ONN has told us and take it on faith that they OMITTED NOTHING ... perhaps you're correct, Steven. Let's see if they left anything out:

In a 2004 letter to Abraham, his boss, Woods Hole senior scientist Mark E. Hahn, wrote that Abraham said he did not want to work on "evolutionary aspects" of the National Institutes of Health grant for which he was hired, even though the project clearly required scientists to use the principles of evolution in their analyses and writing.


He was hired by Hahn's marine biology lab in March 2004 because of his expertise working with zebra fish and in toxicology and developmental biology, according to court documents. He did not tell anyone his creationist views before being hired. Hahn's lab, according to its website, studies how aquatic animals respond to chemical contaminants by examining ". . . mechanisms from a comparative/evolutionary perspective."


But on Nov. 17, Hahn asked him to resign, pointing out in the letter that Abraham should have known of evolution's centrality to the project because it was evident from the job advertisement and grant proposal.

". . . You have indicated that you do not recognize the concept of biological evolution and you would not agree to include a full discussion of the evolutionary implications and interpretations of our research in any co-authored publications resulting from this work," Hahn wrote in the letter, which the commission provided to the Globe. "This position is incompatible with the work as proposed to NIH and with my own vision of how it should be carried out and interpreted."


That's a bit like applying for a job as a basketball player and then saying you don't believe in the theory that balls bounce. It's like getting a job as a priest, and then saying you don't believe in Jesus. It's like applying for a job as a crack whore, and then telling your pimp that you don't believe in swallowing three loads at once - in all cases YOU'RE FUCKING FIRED.

So, easy on the "discrimination" claims, you dumb-assed backwater hillbilly dunces. Next time, before you write that angry email or post that inflammatory comment, you might want to do your research and find out if the "biologist" you're supporting has more in common with an ugly skank custodian than Anita Hill.

How did we get from Survivor to Evolution in this discussion?

Regardless, these people need more windmills.

I found the typo! they meant he was a Lie-ologist but after talking to him they got so mad they thought he was a Bile-ogist.

Do you think any of these idiots ever heard of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin???

that guy who was a palientologist AND a Jesuit?

Dude, that's just my scary blogging talent.

Careful eyedoc333, I'm not sure it's a good idea to go saying things like that. There's probably a lot of conservatives out there who would fully support that proposal.
