Mining the tard has become harder since the ongoing parallel threads at TSZ and UD.

So these two nuggets are rather inconspicuous.

1) Timaeus vents his frustration about Jerry Coyne having a good laugh at Paul Nelson:
The limelight-seeking, and hence vulgarization, of the American professoriate has become a matter of serious cultural concern. Blog sites are popping all over the place, where university faculty take a professional holiday from rigorous argument and from the obligation to represent opposing views at their strongest rather than by straw men, and where they indulge in talking about subjects way outside of their expertise, while contriving to use their academic status to lend weight to their opinions in those areas.

Looks like Timaeus would lurve to be a faculty member, but no-one wanted him.

2) Axel makes Sherlock Homes look stupid:
Seems strange to me that Coyne, Carroll and Moran are all Irish names. How many other leading Unintelligent Designers are of Irish lineage, I wonder? Are they disaffected, lapsed Catholics, as I was as a teenager?

I bet other UD posters are itching to tell Axel that Catholics weren't real Christians™ to begin with.

Jews, like Jerry Coyne, aren't real Christians either, of course.
