Were The Senator Buttars Boosters Abducted By Aliens?
It's possible that they were, because they have so far not shown up to defend the Senator on The Senate Site debate over his human origins bill. The Senate Site itself speculated that those who would support such a bill may not be active online. I think that definitely explains part of the problem. But not all of it. After all, there are many ID boosters active online. In the past, sites that have brought up ID have received many different opinions. But then again, those were debates on Intelligent Design. One excellent comment left at The Senate Site by Cliff was "in an attempt to avoid any reference to creationism, Mr. Buttars has produced a bill that actually says NOTHING." I think that is the more compelling explanation for the silence. Intelligent Design is getting nowhere nationally right now so to avoid the problems of other states, Senator Buttars left out ID/Creationism which made the bill meaningless to the many ID supporters who normally show up for the debates. ID supporters know that if they show up for this bill, they will fight a full Creation/Evolution debate in the Utah Capitol. But at the end of the day, even a hard fought victory brings them no closer to their goal. I wouldn't show up either.
