This one is unbelievably exciting. We found it at the creationist blog of the Discovery Institute, and it’s titled John West: Darwin’s Corrosive Idea. 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!], catch the first half of a public talk by political scientist John West on how Darwinism has poisoned Western culture.
Wowie — a lecture 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 pseudoscientific Intelligent design movement.” Let’s find out what the Discoveroids say:
In the lecture, delivered at the Dallas Conference on Science and Faith, West explores how Darwin’s purely materialistic theory of evolution [Purely materialistic? Yuk!] drained meaning from nature [Drained supernatural meaning, presumably], undercut the idea of inherent human dignity [What?], and fueled the rise of scientific racism in the 20th century.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We’ve written about Westie’s claims before — see Was Darwin the Most Evil Man Who Ever Lived?
After that the Discoveroids tell us:
West is author of Darwin Day in America: How Our Politics and Culture Have Been Dehumanized in the Name of Science.
That’s thrilling. Here’s the book at amazon. It was published in 2007. And now we come to the end of the Discoveroids’ glorious post:

Okay, dear reader — what more could you possibly want? Watch the podcast, buy the book, and then spend the rest of your life as a devoted fan of the Discoveroids. Verily, a life well lived!
