Actually, it isn't useless: http://www.dukehealth.org/HealthLibrary/News/10151 Just for clarification, I am a staunch Darwinian but I do not like the escalation of misinformation. You are however, correct about the tailbone and 'junk' DNA. I really don't understand the debate over evolution. It's a well established scientific fact with incredible data and information to back it up. You can still have a religious worldview and accept evolution. As much as religion has to do with the spreading of misinformation, I don't put it entirely at fault. A lot has to do with the state of our educational system. It is in need of a serious overhaul when 1 in 5 Americans believe the sun revolves around the Earth: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/30/science/30profile.html http://www.8bm.com/diatribes/volume02/034/708.htm For anyone that still has doubts, here are some great sources: http://www.talkorigins.org/ http://evolution.berkeley.edu/ http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/faq-intro-to-biology.html http://www.talkdesign.org/cs/ I have no problem with anyone that decides to adhere to a religion or believe in (a) God. The problem arises when they lose all sense of reason and logic and attack well established scientific fact and push their own agenda onto others.
