There was an article in Monday’s Pasadena Star-News about a Jet Propulsion Laboratory employee who alleges that he is the victim of religious discrimination and retaliation, all because he shared DVDs promoting “his views on evolution,” according to the article. David Coppedge, according to the article, is an IT employee at JPL, who writes a blog about the theory of intelligent design — that is, the theory that Darwin’s theory of evolution is bogus, and that we and the universe as we know it were all created by one intelligent being (see the 20th episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation’s” sixth season titled “The Chase” for reference).
In fact, Coppedge has a section devoted to bogus evolution theories called “Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week,” showing a picture of Darwin’s head attached to what looks like a piece of sausage. The entire blog is a must-read, insomnia-curing dissertation on the best arguments anywhere against Darwin’s theory of evolution. Now, I don’t mean to make fun of Coppedge’s blog, but because I’m a Web designer, I can say the blog could be better organized. I mean, the thing is huge, uses different-colored text, and the text itself blends into a giant blob after reading it for a while.
