The American Bar Association is kicking off its 2012 tech show with an address by… Ben Stein. Yes, who better to celebrate the march of technological progress and innovation than a leading defender of intelligent design? Who better to celebrate rigorous intellectual discourse than a man who misquotes Darwin and fakes speeches to college audiences?
Aw come on! The no-design folk are into multiverses where anything and its opposite may be true. That’s why the design folk will simply inherit science, the way a boy may inherit the family garage business because his brother is in chronic crack rehab.
Admittedly, the boy who inherited the business may not be a whiz. But he is a licenced mechanic who would pass random narcotics screening. Which brother would you trust your car to?
Multiverses are to science what crack is to an addict.
As for misquoting Darwin, whatta laff! Darwin is now a cult in biology. He is lauded for his supposed involvement in messes he prudently stepped around, like origin of life. And you can’t quote the guy accurately without being accused of misquoting him – if it makes him look bad – by his devoted zealots. All at a time when new discoveries about how evolution really happens, when it does (horizontal gene transfer, jumping genes, epigenetics, etc.), are leaving Darwinism in the dust, except as a crackpot cult with court-enforced entry into the school system.
