Welcome, dear reader, to the Discovery Institute’s vault of … well, of something. Regarding that graphic at the top of this post, who among us doesn’t look back with fond nostalgia on the golden age of horror comics? Titles such as the one pictured above were eventually banned, but in your Curmudgeon’s case the ban came too late — much too late. MMMRRRRUUUHAHAHAHA!
To enhance the ambiance, click on this: Sound of evil laughter. Now you’re ready to proceed — if you have the courage!
We were reminded of our beloved comic books when we saw the title of the Discoveriods’ new post at their creationist blog: Tour, Meyer on the Multiverse, and More. It’s brief, and it has no author’s by-line. 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!], Rice University synthetic organic chemist and inventor James M. Tour continues his conversation with Stephen C. Meyer, director of the Center for Science & Culture. Download the podcast or listen to it here. [Link omitted!]
We warned you to proceed only if you have the courage. Four days ago we discussed a different podcast by Tour and Meyer. That was Is This the Discovery Institute’s Greatest Podcast?, and there we gave you biographical information about those two. There’s no need to repeat it here, so we shall proceed — for the bravest among you who are still with us. The Discoveroids say:
In this third of three episodes [Ooooooooooooh! This one is the climax!] featuring the two researchers [Researchers?], Tour draws from questions sent in by listeners to his own podcast.
How exciting! The Discoveroids then tell us:
These include questions about the multiverse, quantum cosmology, the possibility — and theological implications — of life on other planets, the Big Bang, and what intelligent design thinking has to say about viruses and bacteria.
Ooooooooooooh! They answer all the big questions! And now, for those few who have not yet run away screaming, here’s the Discoveroids’ final paragraph:
The episode is excerpted from an extended interview from Tour’s excellent new video series The Science & Faith Podcast: Follow the Evidence. [Link omitted!] There you will find the full Meyer interview in video form as well as episodes featuring Henry F. Schaeffer III, John Lennox, and others.
If you have viewed the Discoveroid podcasts, dear reader, let us know what you learned. But if you have descended hopelessly into insanity — well, we warned you.
