Awesome rant

This is very easily one of the best rants I've ever read:
I'm not satisfied with quick non-answers to hard questions. I possess both righteous indignation and humility in the face of ignorance. I reject the idea that religiosity automatically makes someone an expert on anything, especially matters of science. And I just might know what the hell I'm talking about. Who the hell do I think I am, spouting such arrogant, highbrow bullshit?
Well said indeed by Evil Monkey (of closet fame) and the rest of the rant pretty much hits the nail on the head on a wide variety of issues, including how science is popularised in the media, ID and the life of most young prospective scientists.
