We have a pre-weekend treat for you from WorldNetDaily (WND). That’s the flamingly creationist, absolutely execrable, moronic, and incurably crazed journalistic organ that believes in and enthusiastically promotes every conspiracy theory that ever existed. WND was an early winner of the Curmudgeon’s Buffoon Award, thus that jolly logo displayed above this post.
Today’s goodie is Darwin, Dawkins and Perry. It’s by Ellis Washington — the leading intellectual at WND. We last described him here: Darwin Lobby Gestapo Tactics, so if you need an Ellis refresher, that’s where to look. His latest essay is about some old news we’ve written about before. It involves Rick Perry’s famous remark to a kid about evolution and creationism, and then Richard Dawkins’ commentary on that event. We discussed all of that a month ago (see Three on Rick Perry: Dawkins, Cal Thomas, & Biola).
What does Ellis say about Darwin, Dawkins and Perry? Prepare to be amazed. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Scientist and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, perhaps the most famous atheist and fanatical adherent of Darwinian evolution today, went ape a few weeks ago over Gov. Perry’s answer to a child’s question about evolution. At the urging of his mother, a young boy asked Perry’s views on evolution. “Here your mom was asking about evolution, and you know it’s a theory that’s out there, and it’s got some gaps in it,” Perry said, according to ABC News.
Nothing new there. Then he quotes what Dawkins said about it, which you already know. It begins:
There is nothing unusual about Gov. Rick Perry. Uneducated fools can be found in every country and every period of history, and they are not unknown in high office.
What does Ellis have to say about this blasphemy? Let’s read on:
Psychoanalysts and psychologists call Dawkins’ tendencies to slander the religious ideas of Jews and Christians and disparage the politics of Republicans and conservatives with ad hominem attacks, ascribing scurrilous motives and anti-scientific intentions as psychological projection. Where’s Freud when you really need him?
What? Ellis has psychoanalyzed Dawkins? We continue:
Now, Dawkins is releasing, of all things, a children’s book on evolution that teaches children why all religion, especially Judaism and Christianity, are a myth. It was the brutal Russian dictator Vladimir Lenin who, regarding the best way to brainwash the masses, boasted, Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. A century and a half of evolutionary propaganda has made us all Darwinists now.
Wowee! The book he’s talking about is something we’ve mentioned before — The Magic of Reality. Here’s more from Ellis:
The unholy trinity, Darwin-Lenin-Dawkins, and their intellectual children have carried the day in modern times because they control virtually every aspect of science, education, law, philosophy, politics, economics, culture and society
Aaaargh!! Moving along:
Nothing in science is absolutely certain. Even today scientists are proving one of Einstein’s bedrock theories to be false – that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Another excerpt:
Karl Marx, a contemporary of Charles Darwin, literally worshipped at the altar of Darwinian evolution and used Darwin’s work as the intellectual foundational for Marxist communism.
Utterly false — see Marx, Stalin, and Darwin. On with the article:
Based on Darwinian evolution and materialistic worldview of life receiving virtually universal approval in the late 19th century, the stage was set ushering in the classical age of 20th century atheistic, genocidal dictators – tyrants like Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Franco, Pol Pot, Kim Il Sung.
Kim Il Sung? Well, that’s a new one. But he somehow forgot to include Bonnie & Clyde. Now we’ll skip to the end:
Darwinists embody the real threat to legitimate scientific research, in the name of defending science. It is disturbingly Orwellian.
Once again, dear reader, we’re left speechless. That’s okay, Ellis’ essay speaks for itself.
