Discovery Institute: Casey on Fox & Friends

DEAR reader, this one is almost beyond our endurance. At the blog of the neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids), there’s another post by everyone’s favorite creationist — Casey Luskin: Errors in Biology Textbooks: Casey Luskin on Fox & Friends.

For those who haven’t seen it, Fox & Friends is one of those morning news and chit-chat shows. It’s also the one we watch — well, we’re not always watching, but we have it on in the morning. They’ve had a series of interviews in recent weeks about defective text books, usually involving misrepresentations of American history, and — surprise! — the errors almost always promote a left-wing view of things. It’s a pretty good series.

Okay, fine. Now it appears that they just did one on science books, and for this episode they interviewed Casey Luskin. Casey told them — another surprise! — that all the books are wrong about evolution. All of them.

There’s a YouTube type of video at the Discoveroid blog. Our link to today’s story will get you there. If you prefer, you can see it here at the Fox site.

Addendum: Why make you click around? Here it is:

Take a look. After all this time writing about him, it’s quite an experience to see the great scholar and to hear his voice.

You don’t need our commentary for this one.

    Arrrrgh! Arrrrgh! Arrrrgh!
    Curmy, how can you stand watching this *##!!% in the morning?!?
    I’d be pulling out my hair, if I had any left to pull.
    A suggestion — sleep in instead. It’s way better for your health.

    I suffer in the service of my readers.

    “I suffer in the service of my readers.”

    Boy, do you ever!

  4. Luskin knows more than the biologists contributing to the text books. Yah, right.

    Little man, big, big head. Empty too I’ll bet.

    But Luskin’s head isn’t empty. It’s crammed full and chock-a-block with — well, let’s not say what Luskin is full of.

    Thus bypassing the automatic comment moderation filter.

    The thing that got me was how willing the Fox & Friends host was to go along with Luskin, rather than challenging him on the obvious point — when Luskin claimed that ALL biology texts were wrong. That statement should have raised a big red flag that he was dealing with a crackpot.

    1. The credulousness of morning shows makes the credulousness of daytime shows look quaint by comparison.
    2. It’s a 24 hour news channel, which means that there’s about 22 hours of filler to fill every single day.
    3. It’s Foxnews.
