    Far from being "debunked", The theory of evolution is alive and well. As for Darwin and his theory , it HAS been tweaked and refined as new data is uncovered (as with any new theory or hypothesis)

    Support for the theory itself is widespread if not quite universal among scientists:"The vast majority of the scientific community and academia supports evolutionary theory as the only explanation that can fully account for observations in the fields of biology, paleontology, anthropology, and others.[16][17][18][19][20] One 1987 estimate found that "700 scientists ... (out of a total of 480,000 U.S. earth and life scientists) ... give credence to creation-science".[21] An expert in the evolution-creationism controversy, professor and author Brian Alters states that "99.9 percent of scientists accept evolution".[22] A 1991 Gallup poll of Americans found that about 5% of scientists (including those with training outside biology) identified themselves as creationists.[23][24]

    Additionally, the scientific community considers intelligent design, a neo-creationist offshoot, to be unscientific,[25] pseudoscience,[26][27] or junk science.[28][29] The U.S. National Academy of Sciences has stated that intelligent design "and other claims of supernatural intervention in the origin of life" are not science because they cannot be tested by experiment, do not generate any predictions, and propose no new hypotheses of their own.[30] In September 2005, 38 Nobel laureates issued a statement saying "Intelligent design is fundamentally unscientific; it cannot be tested as scientific theory because its central conclusion is based on belief in the intervention of a supernatural agent."

    We need many more like him! Way too many of us just roll our eyes and downplay the insidious lies and half-truths being fed to us as a nation. "repeat the lie enough times and it will be taken for truth".

    I think he's great. I agree with him at LEAST 90% of the time.

    As for offending "me" ... no not that i can think of.

    I think that comedy is very effective in showing just how absurd a lot of the rhetoric,spewing from the right especially, really is. I also think , hope maybe haha, that maybe, just maybe a few of his barbs against the Democrats will put a little more backbone into them.. we'll see about that I guess.

    Bill Maher , Jon Stewart ,Steven Colbert we need more of these types of comedian/pundits to not only galvanize the faithful but to show the independent voting segment just how silly/corrupt/mean the religious/conservative bloc really is.

    Good point. "UnAmerican"..... someone who distains the values written in the Constitution and the ideals expressed in The Declaration of Independence. Who twists and perverts Their words into something ugly.

    I agree with you. But the question is, why are so many people seemingly going along with and/or actively helping their oppressors? How has the Far right gotten the middle classes and poor to vote against their own best interests?

    You know, The United States has never had a real Fascist State before, could we be seeing the birth of one?
