Discoveroids — Bizarre, Truly Bizarre

The latest at the Discovery Institute’s creationist blog is titled The Good Ship EVOLUTION, written by Klinghoffer.

The thing is very brief, consisting mostly of pictures of a ship in Seattle’s harbor. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:

Look what’s out in the middle of Elliott Bay opposite Discovery Institute’s Seattle headquarters. It’s an unusual and somewhat rundown-looking cargo ship. Here’s a closer look:

There’s another photo. Then he says:

On the front, they’ve painted the word EVOLUTION. Presumably the ship’s name, or is it?

What else would it be? After that strange question he tells us:

I watched for several minutes and it’s clearly not moving at all. Just parked there, going nowhere. I think they’re taunting us.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Klinghoffer continues:

On the back, they’ve painted another word, VIGOR. Interesting.

What’s so interesting about it? Let’s read on:

Apparently a reference to what they regard as the still robust nature of neo-Darwinian explanations.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Klinghoffer ends his strange post with this:

Yeah, sure, guys. Whatever you say.

*Sigh* After all the trouble and expense we went through to send that ship to Seattle, and it didn’t send the Discoveroids into panic mode. Ah well, we’ll have to think of something else.

    And to think this is the very best the Discovery Institute has to offer.

  2. Evolution is apparently not a cargo ship but a drydock on a heavy lift ship on its way to the Vigor shipyard. See https://www.facebook.com/pg/VigorIndustrial/posts/ passim.

  3. Sorry Klingy but I don’t know anyone who’d get a ship named IDiot.

  4. “Look what’s out in the middle of Elliott Bay opposite Discovery Institute’s Seattle headquarters.”
    Aaaarggghhh! Klinkleclapper has done some actual work! Looking out of the window and focusing on something interesting!
    Btw, how are your dogs doing? It has been a long time since you wrote about them.

  5. Nice catch, Glenn Branch.
    Serves to highlight Discoveroid observational skills.

    ” It’s an unusual and somewhat rundown-looking cargo ship.”

    Well no. It’s a heavy lift ship packing a rather nice looking dry dock. But what a perfect expression of creationist mentality:

    – See something you don’t understand,
    – Don’t bother to find out anything about it,
    – Cram your misunderstanding into your religious framework,
    – Try to cast it as meaning something it doesn’t.

  6. Ken Phelps. Awesome post. I thought Klingy was just going full paranoid.
    Hilarious and pathetic at the same time.

  7. mnb0, I’ve mentioned before that I only have one dog now — Miss Scarlett. She’s doing fine. Ol’ Aaaaarrrrrrggggghhhh is in doggy heaven, frolicking with my earlier dogs.

  8. I imagine the year Harley Davidson came out with the Evolution engine was a tough time for Klinghoffer.

  9. “Ol’ Aaaaarrrrrrggggghhhh is in doggy heaven, frolicking with my earlier dogs.”

    Jeeez, what has happened to the Sensuous Curmudgeon? Last I heard he didn’t believe in heaven.

    Oh, no, you’re wrong! Doggie Heaven is real. I saw a documentary about it, and all dogs go to heaven.

  11. docbill1351 says: “all dogs go to heaven.”

    Indeed they do.

  12. Theodore Lawry

    “all dogs go to heaven.” Perhaps it’s because they don’t try to tell God how He created the universe, or life, or how He made dogs the pinnacle of Creation.

  13. One of the marks of the true fanatic is the lack of a sense of humor.

  14. And wouldn’t “rigor” be a better taunt to the DI?

  15. Good article, Glenn. It says:

    The vessel had been carrying a new 640-foot-long “Evolution” drydock from Korea to Harbor Island for shipbuilder Vigor Industrial, which manufactures Washington’s ferry fleet. The Evolution represent’s [sic] a $20 million investment for Vigor and brings the company’s drydock count up to three, fulfilling a promise the company made to expand its West Coast capacity.

    The Discoveroids know as much about Seattle as they do about evolution.

    If there had been two drydocks on board, thus making it more Ark-like, maybe they would have had more interest.
