Prolonging a Pointless Debate

I come down squarely on the "it is not science" side of the intelligent design debate. Anything that requires saying something is just too complicated to figure out to me not only isn't science, it is anti-science. When matter and antimatter collide, they annihilate each other, converting all their mass into energy. When science and anti-science get together, they spawn endless, pointless debate thus robbing the universe of energy.

For those that still care I present a couple of reasonable salvos. In the left corner wearing his newspaper columns and writing credentials we have fellow G'boro resident Orson Scott Card. In the right corner flying the colors of a web site with a history of actual journalism, we have John Timmer.

While you ponder and debate, I believe I will go see if Lost manages to regain any of its first season glory, or if it remains mired in pointlessness. One of us is probably wasting their time...
