Borne has officially jumped the shark. †

He is now claiming that yes, since he doesn't like what he sees as the moral implications of Evolution, evolution must in fact be false:

I've been similarly troubled by the theory of gravitation, because ideas have consequences.

If the theory of gravitation is true, and dropping bricks on people's heads from the overpass is a logical consequence of the theory of gravitation, then our idea of the value of life is wrong. †

Under this scheme, any idea on gravitation that implies dropping bricks from the overpass, however brutally applied, is also not wrong.

Therefore, if gravitation is true, human life isnít worth much more than the lives of lab rats.

I'm converting.
