The last time we wrote about The Discoveroids’ 2019 Creationist Seminar was almost a week ago: Discoveroids’ Seminar — Somebody Please Come! The April Fools’ Day deadline for registration is rapidly approaching, and they’re still desperate for people to show up.
The Discovery Institute just posted this at their creationist blog: Your Last Weekend to Work on Summer Seminars Application, written by Klinghoffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The Summer Seminars on Intelligent Design are not only cost free [Wowie!] — including air travel as needed — they are the only opportunity most university students will have to objectively study the evidence for design in biology and cosmology.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! The Discoveroids’ creationist event is totally free. They’ll even pay your way to get there. And it’s your only chance to “objectively” study their “evidence” for Oogity Boogity! So why aren’t hoards of people sending in applications, pounding on the door, and begging to be let in? Why are the Discoveroids pleading for people to attend the event?
Klinghoffer doesn’t try to explain. Instead he makes the event seem exciting. He says:
It’s not an exaggeration to say this is forbidden science.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! So is the Time Cube, young Earth, hollow Earth, flat Earth, astrology, Bigfoot, Moon landing denial, and so many other ideas in Wikipedia’s List of topics characterized as pseudoscience. Klinghoffer is reaching out to those brave souls — like you? — who dare to seek forbidden knowledge. He tells us:
But the deadline to apply is Tuesday, April 2, which leaves you one weekend to finish your application.
Ooooooooooooh! The deadline is upon us. You’ll have to spend April Fools’ Day on your application. Klinghoffer continues:
It’s not onerous to complete, but as you know from your studies as an undergraduate or graduate student, deadlines are deadlines.
It sounds like they’re serious. It’s clear that they won’t be extending the application date, so you’d better hurry, dear reader. Klinghoffer ends his post with this:
For more information and an application look here! [Link omitted.] The Seminars run from July 5 to 13 in Seattle. If you’re not a student, let a student know today.
Don’t just sit there. Get that application in. Do it now! Just think — you might be the next Casey Luskin!
