Once more, dear reader, we visit the creationist website of the Discovery Institute, and there we find wisdom we never dreamed of before. Their stunning new post is titled Rabbi Moshe Averick Takes on Stephen Hawking’s Nonsense of a High Order, 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 classic episode of ID the Future [Ooooooooooooh! A Discoveroid podcast!], guest host Ira Berkowitz interviewed Rabbi Moshe Averick, author of Nonsense of a High Order: The Confused World of Modern Atheism, about Stephen Hawking’s comments on God and religion in Hawking’s posthumously published Brief Answers to the Big Questions..
That was a stunning paragraph, so we have to pause for a moment to make sure that everyone understands what the Discoveroids just told us. Their podcast features a rabbi who is criticizing Stephen Hawking. It’s a happy coincidence that the rabbi’s book — Nonsense of a High Order, was the subject of an earlier post at our humble blog — see Discoveroids Praise Self-Published Genius #125.
Now that we’re all together, lets continue with the Discoveroids’ post. They say:
Averick describes the work [Hawking’s book] as “superficial,” “convenient,” and marked by “a glaring lack of profundity.” Or as the rabbi puts it, “If he did physics that way his university would have fired him.”
Shocking. Absolutely shocking. Then, at the end of their brief post, the Discoveroids tell us:
Listen in to hear why Averick has such a problem with the book. Download the podcast or listen to it here. [Link omitted!]
Well, dear reader, do you have the courage to view the Discoveroids’ podcast? If so, tell us about the experience.
