Why is it now so cool to be a “creationist”?

Further to “Everybody you don’t like is a “creationist” these days, it is outrageous how people are just plain poaching the “creationist” brand.

It was bad enough that people called Mike Behe a creationist (Stephen Jay Gould did), even though Behe doesn’t think acts of creation occurred. Same thing happened to Platonist Michael Denton and, oh yeah, agnostic David Berlinski.

They caught the creationist cooties, somehow. Big “today in science” thesis in that, doubtless.

Then atheist mathematician Peter Woit got called a creationist because he thinks multiverse nonsense is, well, nonsense. As we said at the show trial, “creationist” is the new skeptic.

But now, even Gould is a “creationist” because he doubted crackpot Darwin theories of race. So are all the progressives who have persecuted creationists.

If I were a stock broker, I would advise “Have some ‘creationists’ in your portfolio.”

Update: Jerry Coyne called Simon Conway Morris a creationist in 2009.

    Dear News,

    Do words have any serious meaning these days?
    Does anyone care about meaning?

    Does the term ‘love’ mean the same in “I love chocolate!” as in this roadside billboard ad “Adult Store – Videos and Love Toys” or in “we love our children and grandchildren” ?

    Generally, human communication has been degraded to frivolous exchange of nonsense messages on internet-based social media. There are rare exceptions.
    Let’s be honest to ourselves and admit that discussions like the ones taken place in this blog, which many times are provoked by your frequent OPs, are boring to the majority of people out there, who care more about constantly watching TV ‘novellas’ and other entertaining programs that require minimum thinking or reading colorful gossiping magazines that so greatly enrich our cultural background. Someone said we try to entertain ourselves all the way to our graves 🙁

    Apparently some studies indicate that around 25% of energy is consumed by a thoroughly thinking brain. If that’s is correct, then thinking could be another weight-loss program to try, but it would not be popular at all.

    Is this current situation the result of the unarguably accepted, solidly validated and exceedingly proven RM+NS mechanisms acting on matter and energy through infinite time?

    Can ‘evolution’ get ‘better’ than this? Yes, no, maybe…

    In Russian language ‘horror show’ means ‘good’ 🙁

    Sorry, my mistake.

    To me, anyway, the term “creationist” referred to those who believed in a literal interpretation of Genesis (a 6000 year old Earth, literal 7 day creative period). Nowadays it’s used to describe anyone who doesn’t drink the Darwinian Kool-Aid.

    Maybe I shouldn’t bring this up here, but the word “homophobic” is a similar abuse in terms. What has really happened is that people are intellectually lazy or dishonest, and instead of engaging in real arguments, they would rather find as nasty a pejorative as possible to use against their opponent. It doesn’t even matter if the context is correct; as long as the term evokes certain negative feelings, then it is ok to use it.
