A week ago we wrote Discoveroids Say Science Is Inherently Inhuman. The Discovery Institute had posted about the first half of a talk given by John West (whom we affectionately call “Westie”). Wikipedia describes him as: “a Senior Fellow at the Seattle-based Discovery Institute (DI), and Associate Director and Vice President for Public Policy and Legal Affairs of its Center for Science and Culture (CSC), which serves as the main hub of the Intelligent design movement.”
We weren’t expecting it, but today at their creationist blog the Discoveroids have posted about the rest of Westie’s talk. Their new post is titled Listen: Darwinism and Private Life. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
On a new episode of ID the Future [Ooooooooooooh! A Discoveroid podcast!], hear the second half of Discovery Institute’s John West’s talk given at the 2020 Dallas Conference on Science and Faith. Dr. West discusses how Darwinism has corroded Western culture [Egad!], including the most private aspects of our lives. [Gasp!] Download the podcast or listen to it here. [Link omitted.]
You’ve probably noticed that your private life is corroded. Now you know why. Darwinism has done this to you! Then they say:
West examines the morally poisoning effects of Darwinism on marriage, sexual ethics, and religion, such that virtually anything can be defended as OK, and no particular culture’s ethic is to be preferred over another.
Darwinism is the most horrible thing that could happen to you, so it must be avoided as strenuously as possible. But wait — there’s even more to Westie’s catalog of Darwinist horrors. The Discoveroids tell us:
Humankind’s spiritual purpose has likewise been eroded.
Aha! That explains why you have no spiritual purpose
There’s only a little bit more to the Discoveroids’ post. It ends with this:
Yet West closes with hope [Ooooooooooooh! There’s hope!]: science in our generation is discovering more and more signs of intelligent design and purpose in nature [How wonderful!], and young researchers are learning that materialism shouldn’t be the foregone conclusion of contemporary science.
Science doesn’t have to be materialistic. With the great work the Discoveroids are doing, spiritualism will be the future of science. Isn’t that wonderful?
