Klinghoffer Dreams of a Darwinist Reformation
Discovery hijinks again, it’s sometimes hard to tell whether they are disguising their religion with pseudoscience or their pseudoscience with religion… oh wait… Klinghoffer says that Science is the religion….
We often encounter the sad phenomenon of a creationist who imagines that science — especially “Darwinism” — is some kind of wicked religion that competes with his own.
A good example is given to us today by the neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute‘s creationist public relations and lobbying operation, the Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids, a/k/a the cdesign proponentsists).
The author of the latest Discoveroid rant is David Klinghoffer — a Discoveroid “senior fellow” (i.e., flaming, full-blown creationist). We won’t bother to repeat our description of his creationist oeuvre here, but you can check it out in this recent post. Suffice it to say that Klinghoffer is very experienced at whipping out his “Darwin = Hitler–Marx-Stalin-Mao-Mengele-Manson-etc.” rhetorical device and waiving it around with merry abandon at any provocation.
