Discoveroids’ Year-End Request for Funds #2

The Discoveroids — described in the Cast of Characters section of our Intro page — are at it again. It was only a week ago that we wrote about their first 2012 year-end fund-raiser.

Today they’ve just posted When You Support ENV, Listen to the Good Angel. Good angel? We thought that seemed familiar, so we checked our archives. Aha — last year their second fund-raising post had exactly the same title. Not only that, but this year’s post is word-for-word the same as last year’s. We wrote about that one here: Discovery Institute Begs for Money Again!

Is this a symptom of the Discoveroids’ end-stage senility? How else does one explain what seems to be mindless repetition? Well, there is another explanation — they don’t have anything new to say (creationists never really do) and they know their faithful readers won’t notice anything amiss.

There’s no reason for us to make any commentary on their latest post — other than mentioning its existence. If you care to see our reaction to its content, you’ve got a link to what we said last year. Unlike the Discoveroids, we know when we’re repeating ourselves, and even when we do it for background information, we usually let you know about it. However, we will repeat ourselves in one respect — last year we donated nothing to the Discoveroids’ unholy cause, and this year’s contribution will be exactly the same.

    Well, I’ll just have to repeat my donation from last year, then. 😉

  2. In the spirit of generosity, I shall double my previous contribution.

    I’d say triple, but if I laughed three time as loudly at them, I might hurt myself.

  3. How else does one explain what seems to be mindless repetition?

    Well, the scary answer is maybe it worked so well they saw no reason to change it. Here’s hoping that’s not true.

  4. Have they introducted a new part to there theory? The angel of the itelligent designer and the affect it has on higher cognative functions?

    If a sufficient portion of the audience for 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, rise up and complain that the fundraising has become mere boilerplate, then the fundraising will be moved to some kind of “Cast off Creationist Characters” link on their blog intro page.
