Ross Raffin is currently (May 2006) a senior in High School who will soon enter Stanford University with the class of 2010. When not buried in the latest Dawkins, Mayr, or Diamond book, Ross studies the political and social satire of authors such as Vonnegut, Swift, and Heller. He is published in three anthologies, several e-zines, and national magazines such as the Wittenburg Door. Aside from movies, Ross also enjoys tormenting local Scientology chapters and can proudly claim being banned from one building, being recognized by Scientologists operating street booths, attempting to bribe the homeless to take Scientology stress tests, investigating another chapter under the guise of an adopted teen with ADHD, and enduring the spin of the head.
The judicial system establishes that a criminal theory can be shown true beyond a reasonable doubt without anyone witnessing the event. The credibility of a well-established theory is powerful enough to warrant the death sentence. Yet, there is a gear shift that occurs whenever detectives are compared to scientists. The very same people who agreed or disagreed with the prosecutor's hypothesis will say that no amount of evidence will convince them that evolution occurred.
