Confusion in Babylon

That title does NOT work in English, but that's appropriate, given this post's nature.

Found this gem about(?) Intelligent design via the long fingers of the Bruck:

"The opponents of Wrathful Dispersion maintain that it is really just Babelism, rechristened so that it might fly under the radar of those who insist that religion has no place in the state-funded classroom. Babelism ... held that the whole array of modern languages was created by God at a single stroke... Wrathful Dispersion is couched in more cautiously neutral language; rather than tying linguistic diversity to a specific biblical event, it merely argues that the differences among modern languages are too perverse to have arisen spontaneously, and must therefore be the work of some wrathful (and powerful) disperser who deliberately set out to accomplish a confusion of tongues."

All the rest is equally brilliant. Go with the reading, I've been with the linking.
