I am not sure if this is discussed there or not - sorry i didn't bother to look in detail - but there is an excellent open letter to the Kansas Board of Education

There was also a nice extemporaneous discussion offered by the late Douglas Adams...
. . . imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, 'This is an interesting world I find myself in'an interesting hole I find myself in'fits me rather neatly, doesn't it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!' This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, it's still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything's going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise. I think this may be something we need to be on the watch out for.

Kevin, my first thought was of a certian whale... falling to the ground... but you are right. This discussion takes place in a realm we are not used to arguing in!
