This appeared yesterday at the Discovery Institute’s creationist blog, so the grand event it promises for “tomorrow” has already occurred, in all likelihood. The title of their post is Tomorrow: New Science Uprising Episode on Human Origins, and it was written by Klinghoffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
A brand new episode of Science Uprising premieres tomorrow, October 13, at 12 pm Pacific/3 pm Eastern.
What the Discoveroids call “Science Uprising” is a YouTube series described at the Discoveroids’ website: Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture Launches Provocative New YouTube Series Titled “Science Uprising”. We haven’t read their description and we haven’t seen any of their YouTube offerings. Our assumption is that it’s the same old creationism that they’ve been blogging about for years. Anyway, let’s see what Klinghoffer says about their newest offering:
This one, in the typical edgy Science Uprising style [Ooooooooooooh! It’s edgy!], cuts to heart of the mystery of human origins.
The mystery of human origins? Wow — this is exciting! Klinghoffer tells us:
“Human Evolution: The Monkey Bias” features geologist Casey Luskin [Hee hee!] and biologist Jonathan Wells [BWAHAHAHA!], showing that materialism is wed to ape origins for humans because the philosophy’s whole picture of reality demands it.
Everyone knows who Casey is. As for Wells, see Discovery Institute: The Genius of Jonathan Wells. Those two are going to reveal human origins without the bias of materialism. Isn’t this thrilling? Klinghoffer continues:
A view open to intelligent design [Hee hee!] can follow the evidence freely. It does not require a particular narrative of how humanity arose.
Is your view open to intelligent design, dear reader? If not, all we can say to you is Oook, oook! Anyway, here’s the end of Klinghoffer’s post:
Join us for the live event on YouTube and interact with Dr. Luskin as he participates in the simultaneous video chat. See it right here:
What looks like a YouTube video is at the end of Klinghoffer’s post. As we said at the beginning, he posted this thing yesterday, so you missed all the excitement. But maybe you can still learn something by following the links, so go for it! And in conclusion, we say Ooook, oooook!
