Ask a Scientist: BIGFOOT.........So much for Objectivity

My vote for most useless gathering of 2009 (I know it's kind of early to have a winner) is the "Ask a Scientist" pow-wow in San Francisco, the city of morals!
Here's a biography of the esteemed Berkley based "Scientist" Eugenie C. Scott:

Dr. Eugenie C. Scott, a former college professor, is Executive Director of the National Center for Science Education, Inc., a not for profit membership organization in Oakland, CA, of scientists, teachers, and others that works to improve the teaching of evolution, and of science as a way of knowing. It opposes the advocacy of "scientific" creationism and other religiously-based views in science classes. She has served on the Board of Directors of the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS), and the advisory counsels of several church and state separation organizations. She has held elective offices in the American Anthropological Association and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Scott is the current president of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists, for which she has also been Secretary-Treasurer. Honors include the Bruce Alberts Award of the American Society for Cell Biology, the Isaac Asimov Science Award from the American Humanist Association, the First Amendment Award from the Playboy Foundation, the James Randi Award from the Skeptic Society, and the Distinguished Alumna Award from the University of Missouri College of Arts and Sciences.

Sounds like a delight, doesn't she? Here's a tip for the good "Dr.": Since the money you EARN has the "religious-based" inscription IN GOD WE TRUST, please promptly return it so that it can be distributed to those who appreciate the moral and ethical benefits that believing in a supreme being offer.

"Dr." Scott, Let me introduce you to a friend of mine:

Once a rattlesnake bit Chuck's leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the snake died........

LOL. Nobody messes with Chuck.

I'm sure there's an argument in there somewhere. But it appears to be as good at hiding as ... oh ... say ... bigfoot.

Maybe the argument is "God exists because he has signed our money", or maybe "Chuck Norris is genetic proof of bigfoot" or maybe "Hey, look, I can use quotation marks to cast aspersions."


We are defeated by the clarity of your logic.

Now, where is the Bible? I have me some catchin' up to do. Gotta find out where Bigfoot sat on the Ark.

Bigfoot is in cold storage at Area 51.

Considering the fact that Mr Chuck Norris is a believer in "Intelligent Design," I think his image packs just the right punch for your bizarre article.

Does belief in big, hairy creatures (despite any evidence) always coincide with belief in omnipotent, bearded men in the sky (also despite any evidence)?

I was at the talk and had a chance to chat with Dr Scott. She's a brilliant lady, and also very charming. She deserves more than to be reviewed by a cretin like you.

You're right, nobody messes with Chuck.

I do so enjoy individuals describing themselves as plural beings. I think if you're a proponent of Darwinism than of course you won't agree with my opinions. As far as getting a bible, just go by your local church and they'll give you one.
Thanks for your comments.

....and the Government's got photos that they're keeping under wraps.

Once again, I'm not surprised about an atheist's confusion regarding my posting. If Scott wants to use her status to promote her agenda in public than she's fair game for criticism from those, like me, who disagree with her. Thank you for the link. As for Bigfoot, there's plenty of evidence: eyewitness(anecdotal), footprints, hairs, at least one video, etc...
But I suppose that all of this was hoaxed and the thousands that have reported encounters with them are liars.......Gee, maybe you're right, that makes much more sense.
Thanks for your comments.
