So it goes

I didnt want to bring this up at first but I thought it relevant to my discussion with cvj of Placeholder and Mr. Vonnegut's recent passing. Im unabashedly calling in the cavalry, cvj.

Kurt Vonnegut, who i greatly admire as a writer and chronicler or human foibles, was interviewed last year on National Public Radio. You can listen to the interview from this link. Mr. Vonnegut is a self-proclaimed secular humanist but quite remarkable were his comments about intelligent design (at around 4:05 minutes in the interview).

(Atheist cartoonist Scott Adams, who is very much alive, also expresses skepticism about the orthodoxy in his Dilbert Blog, claiming it sets off his 'bullshit detector' in posts like this and others.)
