Dude, PZ totally used the same rhetorical flourish as me!

Since today seems like a list type of day, quoth PZ Myers:

Who is best qualified to make informed choices about complex scientific theories?

  1. Scientists with years of training in the subject, and qualified science teachers who understand the fundamentals of the theory.
  2. Creationists who won't even commit to an estimate of the age of the earth.
  3. Members of the board of education who have absolutely no training in the sciences.
  4. Children who are just being introduced to the topic for the first time, haven't read any of the primary literature, and who are entirely dependent on the competence of the instructors who have given them an outline of the general story.

If you get the answer right to this question and the previous entry's question, I'll totally give you an e-cookie.

Well, ok, since this blog is a day and a half old, there are e-cookies for anyone who stumbles upon my sad little site and comments.
