It appears that the Discovery Institute isn’t even trying to seem rational any more. Look what just appeared at their creationist blog: ‘There Is Intelligent Design of American History’. It was written by David Klinghoffer, a Discoveroid “senior fellow” (i.e., flaming, full-blown creationist), who eagerly functions as their journalistic slasher and poo flinger. His post is as brief as it is vacuous. We’ll give you a few excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis.
Congratulations to our friend Michael Medved whose book The American Miracle: Divine Providence in the Rise of the Republic [Amazon link] will be out on November 29.
Ah yes, Medved. Here’s the Discoveroids’ write-up on him: Michael Medved, Senior Fellow – Discovery Institute.
Most of Klinghoffer’s post consists of a Medved video; otherwise he doesn’t have much to say. But what little he does say is pure gold. Here it comes:
He [Medved] spoke this week on the book’s theme at the Reagan Library in Southern California — a fantastic speech — and gave a welcome shout-out to ID at the end. “There is intelligent design of American history,” Michael declares, meaning a “pattern of happy accidents” not plausibly explained in any other way.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] The intelligent designer — blessed be he! — intervened in American history! Isn’t that amazing?
Other than a reference to an earlier post about cosmic coincidences (they’re the designer’s handiwork), this is the rest of Klinghoffer’s post:
The book sounds great. I can’t wait to read it.
So there you are. We told you Klinghoffer’s post was as brief as it is vacuous, but now it seems we were wrong. The vacuity exceeds the brevity.
