With your coffee … what to make of this comment by “Charley Horse” on Michael Denton’s Evolution: Still a Theory in Crisis (2016), comment appended to his review, Cashing in on the Oogity Boogity:

Clother….you are not one of those militant Muslims that Denton’s fellow propagandists at the Discovery Institute kowtow to are you? For the record….the DI isn’t the only young earth creationist organization in the USA that has given aid and comfort to the militant Muslims…especially in Turkey.

Les often quotes from one militant Muslim…..Adnan Oktar, also known as Harun Yahya.

Wow. If Charley Horse has genuine information about “militants,” why doesn’t he go to the police?

This is a long way from agnostic Denton or anything he can have said.

But one doubts that the commenters out there in the two-digit range are very interested in any of that.

The price of an honest discussion of what we know and don’t know about the history of life seems to include the maintenance of millions of these little digital bubbles – floating in seas of discreet deletions by the tireless ‘Zonbots – all safely disconnected from reality.

Patchy AusstechformenIncidentally, from the archives of other non-reading fun people can have with books, without reading them:

At last! A man for Misshelver!

Misshelver gets a job at Barnes & Noble (in the executive suite)

Noviewers: People who attack books without reading them.


Christians for Darwin will now review Darwin’s Doubt, as if anyone cares at this point

H'mm: might and manipulation make trooth and rite for the rite-thinking herd? I wonder if such ponder what they revealabout the amorality, nihilism and delusional nature of evolutionary materialism, never mind the fashionable lab coats. kairosfocus
What strikes me is the consistent disregard by these objectors for duties of care to truth, fairness or even basic fact checking. Smear, tag, demonise, polarise and dismiss by convenient accusation. This clearly reveals the animating spirit that drives them, and it does not point in a good direction for our civilisation. kairosfocus
