The Discovery Institute is rapidly descending into the depths. Their latest is In San Francisco, Watch Where You Step, written by David Klinghoffer, a Discoveroid “senior fellow” (i.e., flaming, full-blown creationist), who eagerly functions as their journalistic slasher and poo flinger. He says, with bold font added by us:
We try to keep the conversation decorous here at ENV [the Discoveroids’ creationist blog] but the story from San Francisco is relevant to our concerns — namely the intersection of science and culture — and sadly, it could not be any more elemental.
Decorous? BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Klinghoffer then informs us of the “elemental” news from San Francisco:
Ahead of Super Bowl 50 and the Christmas shopping season, SF’s Mayor Ed Lee says he’s dead set on clearing homeless “campers” from the streets of the city. It’s not just the inconvenience of tents sprawled in the center of sidewalks of that stylish and affluent city — it’s the sanitary problem involved in what sounds like rampant public defecation.
Rampant public defecation in San Francisco? How horrible! What’s the cause — bacteria in the drinking water? Let’s read on:
Not only San Francisco has this problem. New York is considering decriminalizing public urination, something we observe here in the heart of the Seattle business district as well.
This Discoveroid post is exactly the kind of job at which Klinghoffer excels. Faced with disgusting phenomena like those described above, the staff at Discoveroid headquarters would naturally think: “This is a job for Klinghoffer!” He continues by presenting us with a brilliant question:
But here’s the point. If dogs do it, and the pigeons just on the other side of my office window, why not human beings?
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! This is Klinghoffer at his best! Here’s how it ends:
If we are just another species of animal, offered up by an evolutionary process that attaches no significance to what makes us exceptional, then animal behavior hardly deserves censure.
Golly — he’s right! Such behavior never happened before in human history. It’s the inevitable result of Darwin’s theory, and creationism is the only remedy. But wait — if everyone becomes a creationist, then we’ll be faced with the problem of rampant public drooling!
We need to think about this. But not right now. We’re going out into the back yard to be with the dogs. Miss Scarlett and Aaaargh! know what to do out there. And thanks to Klinghoffer, so does your Curmudgeon.
