I just read this (http://www.aka-alias.net/2007/01/creationist-caviling-over-grand-canyons.html) article about the geology and age of the grand canyon.  Are we just getting more stupid or what?

I've been saying we've been getting stupider for decades.  Look how many people can't put a simple sentence together.  Spelling and grammar are beyond most American's ability.  Then again, what can you expect from a species that developed through random mutations (most of them harmful)?

Not much. We clearly were not intelligently designed.

man does what he is motivated to do.  if he doesn't write proper sentences, then he is motivated to do something other than learn how to write a commonly accepted sentence.

this is because there is so much more information getting to each of us these days.  we learn about so much more of everything that we don't focus on something to know it well.

or... we focus on something too closely and don't have any idea of what else is going on around us.

If we don't focus on anything to "know it well" then no one has any area of expertise and their opinions are pointless in the face of those who do.

OK, maybe the intelligent designer didn't gift me with much, or I slipped on the rungs of the evolutionary ladder, but what does any of the clever retort have to do with the topic?  Really people ...

I'm proof of that.
