Get the popcorn
One of the Answers In Genesis people has contacted PZ Myers asking for “an intelligent debate” over naturalism vs. creationism.. This isn’t just going into the lion’s den; it’s putting your head into the lion’s mouth and poking the big cat with a cattle prod. Myers has asked his readers to hold back for a while and let the fellow have his say.
But the guy wanted no “childish attacks” so when he says something phenomenally stupid, we aren’t allowed to say so or he’ll pout.
Notice that I have removed Pharyngula from my list of daily favorites. This is due to the fact that Myers regards ALL people of faith as idiots and says so, loudly, at every opportunity. While I agree with him on many things, I think this is bad strategy and besides, I know many counterexamples. Also, as a civil society we will be sharing the country with theists – a majority – for a long time. Pharyngula is still linked in the side bar under ‘Science and skepticism’, though. You don’t necessarily let an attack dog into your living room but there are times when they do come in handy and Myers is good to have around for people like this guy from AIG.
