This is follow-up to what we wrote a month ago: The Madness of Mike Fair, which wasn’t the first time we’ve written about that crazed state legislator.
Today’s episode was written by the creationist himself. It appears in the Greenville News, a Gannett newspaper located in Greenville, South Carolina, where we read Bias for evolution is protected. If there’s a comments section, we don’t see it.
As with Fair’s earlier article that we wrote about, he begins by describing — in the most innocuous terms — his recent failed creationism crusade, in which he attempted to corrupt the state’s Education Oversight Committee (the EOC) with the pollution of creationism. He says:
Recently, the South Carolina Education Oversight Committee suggested a minor language improvement to the evolution standard and the State Board of Education rejected the request.
You know all that. Here are some excerpts from the rest of his maniacal manifesto, with bold font added by us:
[A]s a Christian, my faith becomes the focus if evolution is the subject. Facts are notwithstanding. However, my legislative record reveals promoting policy and supporting legislation that helps inmates, women, children, etc. A Christian bias is apparently OK for these issues.
Facts notwithstanding. BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Let’s read on:
Evolution is another matter. Do I believe evolution occurs. Certainly. Evolution means change and it is observable in that sense. There are big dogs and little dogs but big or little dogs are all still dogs. Change occurred but change cannot occur outside the phylum to which dogs belong. Do you really believe that last statement is violative of the establishment clause? Neither do I.
Amazing. Fair’s concept of the micro-macro mambo allows changes within a phylum. Dogs, which are Chordates, can presumably morph into any other animal with a central nerve cord — fish, bird, frog, etc.
Then the genius repeats his grotesquely garbled grasp of the Constitution, which is based on quote-mining Noah Webster. We’ve seen him do that before — see Mike Fair: Confessions of a Creationist Idiot. And he’s not done making a fool of himself yet:
I believe the principles established by the Founders are being removed from the public square by a series of narrow decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court. I am bothered that the Supreme Court has changed the Constitution by a series of 5-4 votes which is clearly outside the methods duly established by the U.S. Constitution to change our Constitution. For example, the courts defined science so as to exclude any theory or information not contained in naturalism — also known as Darwin’s theory of Evolution.
This is non-stop insanity. Why hasn’t that man been institutionalized? Here’s more:
The judicial system made those decisions. Intelligence is effectively banned by the courts and intelligence is often absent in the courts!
He’s confusing the mystical substance the Discoveroids call “intelligence” — see Phlogiston, Vitalism, and Information — with the customary meaning of the word. Moving along:
Another court case ruled “Intelligent Design” violated the Establishment Clause and was therefore ruled unconstitutional. “Intelligent Design” is an explanation for the cause for specified complexity. It is not a theological construct. It is hard for me to believe that “intelligence” has been ruled unconstitutional in the public schools!
The man is hopelessly stupid. Another excerpt:
We have a well-defined process to amend our Constitution that guarantees extensive debate but many of the principles held dear by Americans are being cast aside by judicial activism.
The moron thinks we need an amendment specifically referring to creationism. One final excerpt:
We all are here for a purpose and Darwin’s random causes and gradualism simply do not fit with the facts and discoveries.
Yes, he’s demented, and his condition seems incurable; nevertheless, he’s the tip of the Discoveroids’ spear in South Carolina.
