This year the Discovery Institute is giving you plenty of advance notice. Our slogan for their annual seminar is:
You too can become a slack-jawed, drooling, pants-wetting intelligent design scholar, one who approaches the natural world with your eyes wide and unfocused, as you reject the secular evils of Darwinism and contemplate the supernatural wonders miraculously created by the intelligent designer — blessed be he!
The announcement at the Discoveroids’ creationist blog is 2019 Summer Seminars in Seattle: Study with Michael Behe and Other ID Superstars, written by Klinghoffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Our Summer Seminars on Intelligent Design are a high point of each year. [Oh yeah!] Undergraduate and graduate students gather here in Seattle from around the globe [Earth is a globe?] to learn with the top scientists and scholars in the world of intelligent design. … This year the Seminars will be held from July 5 to 13, 2019.
Ooooooooooooh! The top scientists and scholars in the world of intelligent design! Unfortunately, your Curmudgeon won’t be able to attend, because we’ll be with the top scientists and scholars in the Time Cube world for a seminar about the Cosmic Aardvark. Anyway, Klinghoffer says:
A highlight will be studying with biochemist Michael Behe. [Ooooooooooooh!] Professor Behe’s new book, Darwin Devolves, out in a couple of weeks, is already shaping up to be the ID event of the year as evolutionists struggle to find an apt reply. [Hee hee!]
If Behe will be there, you want to be there too. Klinghoffer tells us:
Other teachers are drawn from the ranks of those 1000+ Darwin-doubting scientists who have publicly identified themselves. [See The Discoveroids Are Gaining Momentum.] The Summer Seminars are one of the top ways that we have populated the growing ID “underground” among young scientists who are still keeping their own skepticism about evolution prudently private. Oh, if the walls of those Seminar classrooms could speak!
We’re told the bathroom walls speak rather well, e.g.: “For a good time, call Casey!” Klinghoffer continues:
Past teachers have included [a bunch of Discoveroids], and more. Often we’ve included instructors from the underground [Gasp!] whose identity is not released except to students once you get to Seattle.
Exciting, isn’t it? Let’s read on:
If you’d like to be part of this great experience [Who wouldn’t?], it’s time to start getting your application materials together. We cover the costs of your week in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Applying is not hard, but it is selective. On a case-by-case basis, we are able to provide travel scholarships.
Okay, that’s enough. If you want more information you can click over there and find links to make an on-line application. This could be a life-changing experience, dear reader, so don’t miss out! Sign up today, and tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya.
