|Getting back to the roastee, I also considered that what Egnor was trying to achieve was purple prose satire.|
Unfortunate, the prose is poor, it's not funny and there's no real theme.
That leaves Dembski-fugly purple.
What is it about creationists that they are jokes, but they can't tell jokes?
You deign to call that wretched snivel ‘purple prose’? Pray, speak not so of that regal shade. I think you forget your colours, Sir! I think you stumble, Sir, a lost chthonic being that finds itself in Sol’s realm and, dazzled, knows not one hue from another. If the dribblings of Eg*** are to be any colour at all – and so transparent are they, it is beyond the pow’r of man and beast to see it – then let them be a thin pale yellow, that it be of no worth to smear them on good white paper.
And ‘prose’? Ha! That prissy-frimping mewl? Is the jabbering of a half-wit prose? Are we to seek edification in the ramblings of the blissfully doted? Swift, Johnson, Rousseau, Dickens, Emerson, Joyce – and the biblical eructations of a protosimian headhunter with a sacred bone from Balaam’s ass through his nose? No! I say: prosaic it surely is; prose it surely is not!

Well intentioned - and well said, sir!
ps: Do we have a "Prose of The Week" Award?
iF SO, THIS SHOULD GETS IT! :)
