Science for Wingers! 

Maybe now that there's a blogger in the gaggle, the question can finally be asked:

"Mr. President, do you believe that the earth is only 6000 years old?"

Because we've just found something four million years old:

The fossilised skeleton of a four million-year-old human ancestor able to walk on two legs could provide clues as to how humans' upright walk evolved. The remains, found in north-east Ethiopia, are the oldest yet discovered of an upright hominid, scientists told a press conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Saturday.

"This skeleton helps us to understand what happened in the joints, how walking upright occurred - what we never had before," says Bruce Latimer of the Natural History Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, who made the discovery together with Yohannes Haile Selassie of the National Museum in Addis Ababa.

Look, I know you can see this curveball coming, but I have to throw it anyhow...

We already know why walking upright occurred—it's too damned painful to drag your knuckles on the ground!

A lesson that today's wingers have not, apparently learned....

And while we're at it, maybe someone can answer me this one:

If Intelligent Design is true, why is there a Republican Party?
