Why it's not smart to argue with creationists

Iíve long regarded Saturnís misty tantalizing moon Titan as the Homecoming Queen of the solar system, courted and fawned over, stringing us along with teasing glimpses under her atmosphere, while Pluto was more like the chubby Goth chick who wrote weird poems about dead birds and never talked to anybody. Still, I just canít stand by and watch as the solar systemís Fat Girl gets pushed down into ever-more ignominious substrata of social ostracism.

If you enjoyed Tim Kreider's essay on Pluto, as I did, you will want to also view his cartoon entitled Science vs. Norse Mythology.
