Evolution in action

Unfortunately, due to the selective pressure of poachers looking for ivory, tuskless elephants are becoming more common in Asia.

Well, the poaching is certainly unfortunate, but the increase is the frequency of tuskless elephants isn't necessarily. In fact, I'm glad to hear that they will be less attractive to poachers, and more likely to survive for that reason. Sounds like evolution is biting those poachers in the ass. Take that poachers! :)

I thought it was just all part of ID's plan to fool us?

Sad, very very sad.

It's good, but it's not going to make a huge dent.

I wonder if the next iteration of ID theory will allow for some "best fit" evolution (aka "survival of the fittest") but focus attention entirely on those "too complex for us to figure out in the sixth grade how they evolved" components. What they really want to do is establish humanity as a non-animal species, distinctly soul-ridden and with a direct relationship with a creator: evolutionary lines outside of human don't really concern them much.
