There’s a refreshingly brief and amazingly bizarre new post at the Discovery Institute’s creationist blog today, titled How Big Is Evolution’s Closet?.
It was written by Cornelius Hunter — a Discoveroid “fellow” who teaches at a bible college. He’s famous around here as the author of The Discoveroids’ All-Time Strangest Essay. We’ll give you some excerpts from his latest, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
When a theory repeatedly fails its fundamental predictions, and is unable to explain even the basic facts, well, there is bound to be doubt.
It’s incredibly difficult to believe, but Cornelius isn’t talking about the Discoveroids’ “theory” of intelligent design. He’s actually referring to the theory of evolution. He says:
No evolutionist who has ever peered into a microscope can look in the mirror and maintain self-respect.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! The Discoveroids, on the other hand, are presumably overflowing with self-respect. After that he tells us:
So I wasn’t too surprised when a friend told me that all across the country, life science professors “have told me in private they have questions about evolution,” and he keeps their identities secret.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Cornelius, the Discoveroid bible-college teacher, has an unidentified friend who revealed that loads of scientists question evolution, but choose to conceal their doubts. Whatever your reaction may be to that anonymous and undocumented claim, Cornelius seems eager to believe it. He finishes his brief post with this intriguing question:
One wonders: How big is the closet?
Cornelius must be lonely. He’s urging his unknown fellow creationists, whom he imagines are legion, to come out of the closet and join him. Hey, he’s right! Closeted creationist professors should declare themselves and embrace their Discoveroid colleagues. There’s probably room for all of them in the Discoveroids’ dingy Seattle headquarters.
