|Cornelius Hunter returns from a two-week hiatus with a post on John Beddington’s call against pseudoscience (which oddly touched a nerve-I guess Hunter recognizes what ID is?). |
How is his return greeted? With O'Leary immediately snatching the post, and turning it into two of her own! There are now three posts on the subject to 2 comments, one of which is a request for content other than O'Leary (I'd bet a 20 Hunter left that one). The other is BA77, of course.
Sunday afternoon lol.
According to the headers DO'L added two other post on "the grossly intolerant". Since I cannot and do not want to read them I would appreciate if someone here would be willing to prepare a readable summary. Thus, he or she should ommit verbartim quotes.
Wow, O'Leary is now up to three dreadful posts on "the grossly intolerant."
Forgive the quotes, but:
Basically, British Science Adviser Beddington says:
|"We are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of racism. We are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of people who [are] anti-homosexuality...We are not—and I genuinely think we should think about how we do this—grossly intolerant of pseudo-science, the building up of what purports to be science by the cherry-picking of the facts and the failure to use scientific evidence and the failure to use scientific method.."|
Which Hunter oddly reads as a critique of evolution, or is trying to be clever, and steps up the rhetoric a bit:
|Yes evolutionists bring us “religiously motivated nonsense” as Beddington puts it ...... Yes, evolution is every bit as dangerous as Beddington suggests. In fact it is arguably far more dangerous than racism and homophobia.|
O'Leary promptly jumps in with a links to an article commenting on Boddington's quotes, which it now represents as "Selective use of science ‘as bad as racism or homophobia.'" Umm....no. He said that selective use of science ought to be smacked down by the media and scientists the same way as racism and homophobia might be.
To this, O'Leary contributes a shot against Muslims, a shot on tax funding....
Post 2 links to another article, with little commentary from O'Leary.
Post 3 is about breastfeeding and palliative care. I don't know.
And there you have it.
BA77 has a gem, worrying about "neo-Darwinists going against the constitution" and the "tentative government approval from the ‘science czar’ himself to be even more ‘grossly intolerant’ than they already have been?" This gathered from the misquote of a science adviser of NOT THE COUNTRY YOU LIVE IN.
