Sunday & Monday
Sekktit Project Work. Then to kr8vkat
& Steinway’s house to visit, which was very pleasant (she's going to have a baby! Soon!). Then home, and was back in time to go to Second Breakfast with drarwenchicken
and BILJ. Then back to Project work. Part of what’s taking so long is a high degree of complexity, but I also spent quite a while just figuring out what to do.
I knew I had at least a couple more hours to go when I wrapped on Sunday night after 8:00. I could have kept going, but I was tired, and starting to make mistakes. I didn’t want to waste time fixing errors, if I didn’t have to.Monday:
One of the nice things about my current contract is that I can email my Project Manager on a Monday morning and tell her that I’ll be in a couple hours later than usual, and the only downside is that I’m not getting paid for that time. So I worked on the Sekkrit Project for a while, and finished the images. I knew I wouldn’t have time on Monday evening, as I was going with sanguinity
to see “Flock of Dodos
,” a recent documentary on the people behind the drive to force “Intelligent Design” curriculum into Science education.
I really do believe that all people have the right their own religious beliefs. What bothers me about the Intelligent Design movement is that it’s so disingenuous. ID pretends
that it’s science-based, pretends
that Evolution is insufficiently supported, pretends
that there’s a controversy raging about that, pretends
that it’s not religiously-motivated. I admit that when someone comes right out and says "We want to introduce a religious bias to Science Education in public schools," the courts say No, so honestly isn't a winning strategy. Personally, if any religious doctrine is to be taught in Science class, I think it should be Pastafarianism
. Current Mood: thoughtful
