Did you know that the word 'sarcasm' isn't in the dictionary?

I considered 'satire', but it fit into the place that 'gullible' originally occupied even less well than 'sarcasm'.

But seriously, as someone with a research interest in evolutionary theory, I must admit that Gould pissed me off. He started his career as a straightforward scientist, but then he discoved he had a talent for prose and took on this role as the spokesperson for evolution that he was professionally unqualified to fill. Those weird 'Teach the debate' people probably read him at one point or another.

IMNSFHO, most scientists should just ignore the wackos, and should delegate the point-person position to someone who's willing to keep up with the literature and not give ground just for the purpose of seeming open minded. Gould was a bad front-man for modern science.

You know, commenting on a little something about a joke doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t get the joke.
