The most exciting event of the year is about to occur, dear reader. Suspense is growing and tension is high. The Discovery Institute has posted a timely reminder — as if you need it: Time Is Running Out: Don’t Forget to Submit Your Nominations for Censor of the Year, written by Klinghoffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
… I once again invite you to submit your nominations [for 2018 Censor of the Year.] The COTY [Hee hee!] award recognizes outstanding achievement in suppressing open discussion and debate about Darwinian evolution and its scientific alternative, intelligent design. We will announce this year’s winner, as always, in time for February 12, Darwin’s birthday, celebrated here as Academic Freedom Day.
The Discoveroids are so clever! They refer to Darwin day as Academic Freedom Day. Klinghoffer says:
We pointed out last week that our 2015 Censor, Neil deGrasse Tyson, is in the news as he gets a green light from Fox for a second season of Cosmos, famous for its airbrushing of science history. But that is not scheduled to run until 2019, so Tyson is not really an appropriate candidate this year.
We wrote about that — see The Discoveroids and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Okay, we won’t nominate Tyson for the honor. Klinghoffer continues:
I will say that among nominations so far, there is a trend toward one particular candidate. But I won’t say more, and of course, COTY awards are decided by a committee of Center for Science & Culture and Evolution News staff.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] There’s a leading candidate! Who could it be? We’re all squirming with anticipation! Here’s the rest of it:
But we greatly value your thoughts on the subject, not least if you can bring to light a censor we haven’t yet considered! Submit nomination now by going here..
Exciting, huh? We don’t want to influence your suggestions, dear reader, but we’ll tell you who our candidate is. It’s reality, because all the relevant observable evidence in the universe points to evolution. You may prefer to believe in the Discoveroids’ intelligent designer — blessed be he! — but reality is more than a jealous mistress — she’s the only girl in town.
