Televangelist's Brain, Mouth Elude Other Theories, Experts Say

Out of the controversial debate pitting the theory of evolution
against the theory of intelligent design has emerged a new theory,
dumb design, which some experts believe may explain the televangelist
Pat Robertson. 

The theory of dumb design holds that human beings were designed by a
superior being, but one who mysteriously designed certain humans in a
particularly dumb way. 

Enter Rev. Robertson, whom many experts in the theory of dumb design
are calling "Exhibit A" in their effort to prove that the theory holds

"If you take a look at Pat Robertson's brain and mouth, and how they
work or do not work in concert, you have a fairly persuasive argument
that the theory of dumb design is valid," said Dr. Davis Logsdon of
the University of Minnesota, one of the leading advocates of the dumb
design theory. 

The theory of dumb design began to gain traction in August, when Rev.
Robertson called upon the U.S. to assassinate Venezuelan president
Hugo Chavez. 

And last week, when Rev. Robertson warned the people of Dover,
Pennsylvania, that God would strike them with natural disasters after
they removed school board members who favored teaching creationism,
the theory of dumb design seemed to achieve critical mass. 

But even an adherent of dumb design like Dr. Logsdon warns against
putting too much stock in the theory, adding, "No one theory could
possible explain all the things Pat Robertson says."
