    Political arguments are not true or false, they just are.

    It's working. They Creationists have framed the debate in such
    a way that the debate can be had. That's a coup.

    Fine, fine.
    I'm not arguing in favor of Intelligent Design, I'm saying that
    it's benign.
    My point was, that the 'democratization' of information is a
    process that is already alive and well, does not require Web 2.0.
    The argument that democracy is nothing more than mob-rule is
    old, tired. Enhancing the process of 'democratization' will only
    make that argument older, ever more tired.
