Yes, but for heavens’s sakes, Ann, that’s the only way legacy media types would know they are “doing science” or “defending science.” In “The Flash Mob Method of Scientific Inquiry” (Townhall, August 24, 2011), Ann Coulter writes that, in politics,
Evolution is the only subject that is discussed exclusively as a “Do you believe?” question with yes-or-no answers. … This is the flash mob method of scientific inquiry.
It is, not, of course, a method of scientific inquiry, but rather the Inquisition of a publicly funded faith, court-ordered for public schools in many places. Coulter, who devoted a third of her 2007 book, Godless to the public Darwin myth, calls Darwinism a “mystery religion from the Victorian age.”
Yes, of course. And worshippers abound, from the byliners at New Scientist and Science to the anonymous press releases at ScienceDaily and Eurekalert. From the liberal Very Reverends to the New Age crackpots, they channel Darwin – mediocrity’s meal ticket. Science’s ticket to nowhere, or to the multiverse* – same thing.
Maybe if we called the Intelligent Designer “Louis Vuitton” to avoid frightening the Godphobics, they’d finally admit the truth: Modern science has disproved Darwinian evolution.
No, Ann. Won’t work. Darwin forgives them all their sins because, “evolutionarily,” they can’t help it. Louis Vuitton would say there’s No Free Lunch and make them pay their bills for his stuff.
* Nowhere and the multiverse the same thing? Of course. The multiverse is everywhere, which is the same thing as nowhere, for directional purposes.
