But What About Schmintelligent Design? 

Our learned colleague P.Z. Myers of Pharyngula informs us that Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will be presenting a special report, "Evolution Shmevolution," from Sept. 11-15 at 11 PM EST:
Science vs. Religion. Evolution vs. Creation. It is an age-old battle whose time has come. "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" will gather together all the experts (or at least those who will talk to them), travel to the places that matter in the debate (basic cable budget permitting) and ultimately settle the controversy once and for all. "Evolution Schmevolution: A Daily Show Special Report" will premiere on
Monday, September 12 and air nightly at 11:00 p.m. through September 15. For one full week, "The Daily Show" goes in-depth, around, through and quite possibly under, one of the hottest hot-button issues facing our nation: evolution. It's the accepted theory on the origin of life by an overwhelming majority of the world's biologists, but maybe they're all wrong. What's so great about the scientific method anyway? "Evolution Schmevolution" will explore:
  • What other theories are out there?
  • Who's on the frontlines of this debate?
  • Should your child's curriculum really be decided by experts in their respective fields?
P.S. -- You're next, gravity.
