A month ago we wrote The Discoveroids’ Alternate Reality Conference, about an event the Discoveroids were staging in London to contrast their creation science with what was being discussed at a nearby biology conference sponsored by the Royal Society. Apparently, no Discoveroids had been been invited to discuss intelligent design at the Royal Society’s conference, so they had to arrange their own conference.
All last week, Klinghoffer was blogging from the Royal Society’s conference, and we ignored his output because it seemed to be nothing but an endless exercise in quote-mining. Now, the Discoveroids are basking in the glory of their own conference. Klinghoffer just posted ID’s British Invasion Is a Hit as We Complete the “Beyond Materialism” Conference at Cambridge U. at the Discoveroids’ creationist blog
The first thing to notice is that the Discoveroids have been referring to this as their Cambridge conference. However, it wasn’t a university event. They merely rented a hall at Cambridge for their event. Okay, here are some excerpts from Klinghoffer’s post, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
With star speakers including Stephen Meyer, Douglas Axe, Paul Nelson, Ann Gauger, and Alistair Donald, the “Beyond Materialism” conference yesterday was a big success!
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Then he says:
We hosted scientists from the U.K., Sweden, Germany, and Israel before a full house at Cambridge University’s Hughes Hall.
A full house! After that he tells us:
All of the speakers did a terrific job and the schedule was packed. Attendees were so hungry to know more about the scientific evidence for intelligent design; it was amazing.
“Terrific.” “Amazing.” Lots of adjectives, but no data. Klinghoffer continues:
The vaunted Royal Society meeting may have been short on scientific fireworks, but “Beyond Materialism” was a hit.
Wowie — it was a hit! That reminds your Curmudgeon of a long-ago experience at a science fiction convention. A booth had been rented in the middle of the hotel lobby by the Scientologists. They were hawking Hubbard’s new book, Battlefield Earth, so this must have been back in 1982. Anyway, none of the SF people had any interest in Scientology or Hubbard’s book, and their booth never had any visitors. Not one. Besides, books were never promoted like that at Worldcons. Nevertheless, after it was over the Scientologists ran an ad describing the book as “The Hit of the World Science Fiction Convention.” Similarly, we imagine the Discoveroids’ conference to have been the hit of Cambridge.
One more excerpt:
That’s all for now as we are simply “shattered” (quite tired), as our British friends say!
The Royal Society must be hiding under their desks. The Discoveroids’ “theory” of intelligent was triumphant, and Darwinism is doomed!
