Free Mojtaba and Arash Day

This from the BBC news website:

The blogging community is powerful, doubling every month
The global web blog community is being called into action to lend support to two imprisoned Iranian bloggers.
The month-old Committee to Protect Bloggers' is asking those with blogs to dedicate their sites on 22 February to the 'Free Mojtaba and Arash Day'.
Arash Sigarchi and Mojtaba Saminejad are both in prison in Iran.
Blogs are free sites through which people publish thoughts and opinions. Iranian authorities have been clamping down on prominent sites for some time. "

A response to R2's Science Watch:
If science points to a designer, then that's where it leads. Except that ID doesn't.

All it does is claim that life or certain life mechanisms are supposedly 'too complex' to have evolved 'naturally'.

The vast majority of earth & life scientists, including professional biologists, don't agree.

The IDists can't point to any *positive* evidence in favour of ID - all they have is arguments from incredulity & from ignorance. That isn't science.

You repeat the oft-told lie that evolution is necessarily related to atheism. It isn't. Most Christian Scientists and more importantly most Christian biologists accept that evolution occurred as mainstream science states.

You complete your rant with one of the most insidiously ridiculous & moronically stupid claims of ID & Creationism - that science is 'biased' because it only looks for 'natural' causes & effects.

Can you name *one* scientific or technological advance *ever* the entire history of the world that was *not* based on 'natural' causes or effects?

Of course you can't.
