Curt Schilling declares jihad on evolution, and ESPN de-evolves

A few weeks ago, Curt Schilling - famed Yankee nemesis, Tea Party quote-goon and Rhode Island taxpayer parasite - turned his mighty Twitter intellect on evolution... you know, that secret global conspiracy through which liberals undermine Yahweh's will - aka: voter fraud crackdowns and the XL Pipeline.

Apparently, Schilling went off his meds for a day and - through the intellectual gravity of tweeting - attacked Charles Darwin's ridiculous and silly theory that dinosaurs were extinct long before man arrived. Good grief, anybody who ever watched The Flintstones knows better.

So.. who took up the Thought Master's evolution challenge? Bill Nye? Stephen Hawking? Lindsay Lohan? 

Nope, but fellow ESPN commentator Keith Law stepped in.

Well... that set off Curt. He cried - Gotcha! - saying it proves that Darwinism is false, if you have to go to use Wikipedia to do it. Ha. Game, set, match. Let's go eat a dinosaur burger. 

So Curt's a creationist? Fine. But here's where it gets weird. Evidently, ESPN pulled Law's tweets, because it it considered them - I dunno - offensive? Good grief. The guy is defending science. Does ESPN think its transmissions to homes across America come from God's will? Have we gone that far over the ledge?

I hope Schilling attacks ESPN and all of sports for breaking God's greatest Commandment - workething on the Sabbath. Maybe then the sports network will find an inch of spine within its frightened, toxic, corporate soul. By the way, the full exchange is located here, (via Reddit.) 

It's hard to believe that at one point, Curt Schilling was being talked about as a U.S. Senate candidate from Massachusetts. No sooner did he win the 2004 World Series than he took to the stump and promoted George W. Bush's candidacy. I thought the guy was smarter, though, and that ESPN was certainly open enough to defending science. Obviously, there are no limits of censorship when a bunch of suits are afraid of pugs.  

Law finished with a tweet of "Eppur si muove," which surely flew 20,000 feet over Schilling's head. It's explained in the link. 

Listen: Folks can believe whatever the hell they want. It's a free country. But the more Schilling opens his mouth, the more he looks like Boston's embarrassing old, drunk uncle, who comes to the dinner table just to rant about those people. Yeah, we've got A-Rod as the millstone around our neck. But Boston has Creationist Curt. Stop breaking that Commandment, Belichik.

Somebody had to replace Ted Kennedy!
