Instead of monitoring volcanoes, what Congress should be monitoring is the eruption of spending in Washington.

Wow, and days later, Mount Egnor erupts. We should have been monitoring the Isn't-stitute on the slopes of the Mount Impossible range. :D

Maybe we should ask the moneyed creationists - the ones who aren't on unemployment, that is - for a grant to study the creationists, since they're so hungry for attention.

Who wants to write a grant for the Friday Meltdown? :p

No takers? We could get a Templeton Foundation grant. :p

I think it's time creationists stopped funding evolution.

And making Darwinian arguments ("There more of us than there are you! We have more money! We have more children! Blah!") in favor of creation, too. :)

Obviously, I was wrong about "purple prose satire."

Neither purple, prose nor satire, although the wisecrack about Madison and Ann Arbor was strangely funny.  Sort of like using the word "kazoo."

We all know the best place to hold a Darwinian Conference is San Francisco.

So, in the end, I'm at a loss as to Egnor's point, other than the one on the top of his head.  He used the word Darwin-xxx about a dozen times, and the same for creation-xxx, but he mentioned "boycott" a whopping 23 times!

Considering Egnor couldn't find either his ass or Louisiana on a map with both hands, I'm at a further loss as to understand why he gives a rat's in the first place.

Could it be that the DI is running out of molehills of which to make mountains?

So, back to my musings ...

Purple Haze?  No.
Purple Rain?  No.
Barney?  Hmmmmm, possibly.

wow quidam you are always on the money.

no doc bill I suggest Raging Purple Throbber For Da Jesus.

Hey, if Egnor doubts his faith as much as he demonstrates by his writings, I was willing to give him the benefit of a doubt.

The brain is like a cell phone, remember?  He wrote that.  

Uh, Egnor, wrong number.  No call list.  F U.

Egnor responds to PZ.

I'm wondering whether he knows what academic freedom means. This is the exact opposite:

Translation Egnor - rational:

ethical scientists - fundamentalist Christians
respect academic freedom - don't say things Egnor doesn't like and don't publish research Egnor doesn't approve of.
real science - God did it
atheist metaphysics - scientific hypothesis and theories Egnor doesn't like

OK, true confession time.

Because I'm such a nice guy I gave Egnor an escape pod:  it was a hoax.

Even if he wrote the thing while stewed he could have taken the pod, done a Dembski "street theater" follow-up and had a few yucks at the expense of the Darwinists who took the bait.

Clearly I was wrong, Egnor apparently meant what he wrote and the DI published it on their website as "news."

Holy Shamoly!  Is there a shark remaining they have not jumped?

I mean, lies and inanity are one thing, but what Egnor writes is completely delusional.

I too can speak creationist very well. :)

Abbie,

Have you learned nothing from the Behe episode? You are a grad student and (shock horror) a woman,  therefore you don't deserve a response. Well other than to have Lacey Cuskin* whine at you in a high pitched nasal drone that makes my hair hurt.

Louis

*JAD did one thing right, Lacey Cuskin sounds like some special public wig (i.e. not a normal merkin) for "gentlefolk".

When some posteriosylvian State eventually gets around to implementing a DI Academic Creedom Bill, the lawyers for the rationally-inclined will eventually get around the "Who me, Officer?" defence and drag the DI into the witless box.  

And they will point to Ignor's "Fundies with Pitchforks and Torches" rant on a web site that doesn't seem to have a disclaimer about the contributors' views not necessarily reflecting etc etc etc.

Dumb, dumber, and DI

What the great Dr. Egnor didn't say was that when  we, the plain, honest, hardworking people of real America, cut off your science funds, we'll have MORE MONEY FOR TORCHES AND PITCHFORKS!

Be very afraid.
