Things have been strange at the Discovery Institute’s creationist blog. Hambo gives the creationists what they want, but we can’t figure out what the Discoveroids are doing, or who they think their audience is. What we found there today is typical. Fortunately, it’s brief. The thing is titled Nancy Pearcey Urges Inconsistent Materialists: Love Thy Body. It has no author’s byline.
What? You never heard of Nancy Pearcey? She’s a Discoveroid fellow. Here’s their bio page for her. She’s a professor at Houston Baptist University, a bible college. We visited that venerable institution’s website and found her faculty write-up. She’s a Professor of Apologetics.
Okay, you know what we’re dealing with. Here’s what the Discoveroids have for us today, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
On a new episode of ID the Future [link omitted], author and professor Nancy Pearcey draws on her new book Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions About Life and Sexuality to explore two inconsistencies she sees with philosophical materialists.
It’s tempting, but we’ll avoid joking about the book’s title. Here’s the Amazon listing for Nancy’s book. Go ahead — poke around and see what you think of it.
This is the rest of the Discoveroid post:
One inconsistency [of materialists] is their unlivable claim that “we have no free will.” [Huh?] The other is the materialist credo to take our cues from nature — except when it comes to the male or female sexual makeup of one’s body.
That’s it. That’s the whole thing. It’s essentially nothing, but typical of what the Discoveroids have been posting lately. Presumably it pleases their generous patrons, so that’s all they need to do — but we still miss Casey.
