Stupid Creationist Quote of the Day

Today’s winning quote comes from William Dembski’s review of Darwin’s Gift To Science And Religion – the Francis Ayala book. Referring to Ayala, Dembski says (Warning: Please turn your irony meters down, or off):

In fact, he gives no evidence of having spent anytime reading, much less digesting, the ID literature. Rather, Ayala gives the impression off someone who has gone to the ID literature simply to find objectionable passages, which he then reads in the worst possible light [emphasis mine - afarensis], forswearing any principle of charity.

Dembski is accusing his critics of quotemining? Words fail me….

  1. When words fail, try giggling, guffawing, howling, pounding the walls, and laughing yourself senseless. Works for me.

  2. “having spent anytime reading… ID literature… simply… objectionable…” – William Dembski

  3. How much time does Dembski propose Ayala should spend reading and digesting a literature that doesn’t exist?

  4. By literature what he probabaly means is the books that poponenents of ID have written because they can’t offer any scientific investigation that any respectable peer-reviwed journal has excpeted.

  5. My new irony meter goes up to 11.

  6. Maybe Dembski has a point that Ayala shouldn’t be quotemining; the creos may have quotemining patented. ;-)

  7. By ID literature, he clearly means “the bible”……

  8. Uh. . . . what ID literature? Dembski’s? Behe’s? What on earth does he mean??????

  9. We now interrupt your regularly-scheduled broadcast of legitimate criticism of pseudoscience for a shameless attempt at self-promotion.
    Hi! I’m trying to win the Commenting Contest. That is all.

  10. Dembski and the IDiocy movement in general have lurched into pathetic attempts at making themselves look legit. Even Limbaugh and Santorum have dumped them. Weikart’s delusions have been accepted by no one, except Coral Gables Ministries (founder now sits with Osiris, or whoever, hopefully a total surprise to him), and DI itself. DI is operating seriously in the red. Even the Anglican Communion has refused to disintegrate, despite the money and fatwas of Ahmanson. ID is like the Black Knight at the Ford, who can do naught but bleed on passersby.

  11. It’s the only way they know how to think because it’s the only way they know how to behave.

  13. investigation that any respectable peer-reviwed journal has excpeted.
