If I had a soul it would surely be damned by this transgression of mine.  May the fleas of a thousand camels nest in my armpits.

However, calling Luskin a moron is an insult to morons, so I guess everybody's on the hook.

Curse that Luskin!  Da goober's downright uninsultable!

I'd love this to be referenced on UD with all of the true believers being forced to defend it ( being as they have to defend everything any other IDist says).

I wonder in private if somebody doesn't come up to Luskin and wack him in the back of the head and tell him to think before publishing.

Your wish has been granted.

Ha ha. So translating it they agree that it is still OK because even though it functions with parts removed, it is a different function and therefore evolution is false. and when somebody pipes up and says this is what we expect from evolution they accuse people of bending meaning. (Head hits keyboard)

Do these guys have feet left? There are so many bullet holes in them.

In another outing, Casey cites his thread on this forum, then spouts this:

 
Quote

I don't list this example to complain — I happily forgive those who have attacked me, and in fact my main response to this behavior is sadness for how it brings the ID-evolution debate down into the gutter. Rather, I mention this example to point out that this example alone finds no counterpart anywhere in the ways that ID proponents have treated Darwinists. The internet Darwinist track record of name-calling against ID proponents speaks for itself, and Humes has portrayed the general nature of personal and ad hominem attacks in this issue exactly backwards from reality.


Emphasis added.

Casey, your ignorance is showing. As usual.

I love dear, sweet Casey's "argument"* in all of this:

1) Someone was mean to me on Teh Intarnetz
2) Therefore IDC is persecuted
3) Therefore Darwinists = Teh Nazis
4) Therefore IDC is correct
5) Therefore Jesus (A Jesus, in an ID argument? Schtum, schtum!) Tehdesignerdunit.

QED.**

* By insinuation and appeal to prejudice as per usual.

** Qasey Est Doofus.***

*** And you can quote me on that.

P.S. Does Casey really, really, think that all "Darwinists" (Who they? Ed.) have is argumentum ad hominem? Does he need explaining to him that a) no one I've ever seen/read/listened to has EVER used the argumentum ad hominem, to refute any IDCist claim, and b) that abuse =/= argumentum ad hominem.

It's like a Monty Python sketch, I think that Casey is unaware that he stumbled out of the Argument room a long time ago and has instead found himself in the room marked "Abuse". It's a lovely room, reserved for people determined to make an utter berk of themselves in public.

Meanwhile, Ken Miller is being extremely unfair to Casey over on the Loom, by actually reading what Casey says, comparing it to what Casey's talking about, and pointing out one or two minor discrepancies. You know, like where Behe didn't say what Casey said he said, but wrote it down in his books anyway.

As it's on the Loom, of course, Casey is entirely at liberty to enter into a discussion on these and what promise to be some substantial further points.

I hope we can get this unpleasantness tidied away in time for ID's next science report.

It's nice that the antievolutionists are still getting drubbed by Ken Miller (who has some guest posts up at Carl Zimmer's The Loom). Casey Luskin is now learning some stuff about cetacean blood clotting from Miller. I was there at the American Museum of Natural History in 2002 when Ken Miller surprised Michael Behe with the fact that cetaceans lacked Hagemann factor. It shouldn't have surprised Behe, as it was in the literature since 1969. And I was there at a dinner earlier in 2002 when my friend Mark Todd pointed out the cetacean blood clotting difference to Ken Miller. We were talking about the various IDC arguments, and when it came around to blood clotting, Mark said, "But whales and dolphins don't have one of those factors." Ken asked for the reference, and we got that from Sam Ridgway shortly thereafter.

Is Luskin even self aware enough to realize the magnitude of the whupping he is taking? Or will he continue in blissful ignorance?

With William Dembski, Mike Gene, and Michael Behe pretty much quiet these days, Casey's becoming the go-to guy for creationist dumbassery. It's like an attrition thing.

One of the Panda's commentators to Nick Matzke's dismantling of Luskin's lies mentioned that the DI - and Casey - are doing this to try and help their cause in The Next Dover Case, by trying to get information about "teach both sides" out in front of the public prior to a TX or LA test case.

I hope that the next Good Ol' Boy Judge is as smart as Judge Jones hisself.

I'd think the greatest fear the ID movement has is getting a dumbass judge to side with them and having that opinion overturned on appeal.

I've followed the right wing argument for some time and know they were expecting Supreme court replacements to be appointed by a conservative. Now that ain't gonna happen.

The next time this gets to the Supreme Court, it will be strike three.

Well, at least Luskin DOES write to go see the exhibit!

Everything else he writes is the company line, but if little johnny student DOES go see Lucy, there is a chance that (s)he might be the next Afarensis of J-dog.

Again, Fogel’s denial that this bears upon academic freedom has a huge credibility gap: Fogel claims this isn’t about freedom of expression, but it seems clear that scholars aren’t free to express support for intelligent design or they are charged with “ignor[ing] the basics of scientific inquiry.”

Obviously, my academic freedom is restricted by my university (and every other university). Never got a honorary degree. QED.

Gee, Casey, whastsamattah? Can't get an IDEA club started at Vermont to sponsor Ben Stein?

Ben ran away, baby. Academic freedom, huh? Well, how 'bout that.

A known proponent? I'd say.....

That phrasing makes it sound somewhat seedy. And surprise surprise, it's a book signing opportunity too.

Can someone help me out here?  Why would the website for the IDEA club at the University of Oklahoma be registered by someone at The Apologia Project in California?

Especially since the OU IDEA Club already registered a domain name almost two months earlier.
