David Gelernter was NOT flung out on his ear for doubting Darwin. And, how many people much care now what P.Z. Myers thinks? Is ultra-Darwinism past its sell-by date?
No, no, Pivar and Myers didn’t do anything except fall out—with litigation threatened. But there’s an Epstein connection in the story—as there seems to be to a lot of things Darwin these says. And, say what you want, that guy Epstein sure picked his targets.
To judge from PZ’s post, it looks as though the new atheists are turning on each other instead of on the rest of us. Doesn’t a proverb somewhere cover that?
