There should be more of them. Like John Derbyshire, who takes apart Ben Stein's inane ramblings on how Darwinian theory inspired Hitler.

If someone comes up with one, one that accommodates all the known facts, biologists will give it serious attention. Until someone does, we'll stick with the best theory we've got. NB: "Darwin was a horrible person!" "Darwinism is bunk!" and "Hitler heart Darwin!" are not theories, only expostulations. And on that last one I will give the warning I always give: If guilt by association is the game you want to play, take a look at some devout Creationists.

Look, the only issue of any political importance here is: What should we teach kids in public schools? The only answer that makes sense to me is: We should teach them consensus science. If you want your kid to be taught Hollow Earth Theory, Orgonomics, Astrology, Great Pyramid Numerology, or Transcendental Meditation, I'm fine with it — but not on my dollar, please.

Derbyshire continues to be (an unfortunately) minority voice of reason over at NRO. Too bad he doesn't have the audience of a Hannity or Limbaugh.
