With all the weird stuff going on, many of you have been asking us for an old-fashioned vomit opportunity. Today we’re pleased to present a good one, which we found it at the creationist website of the Discovery Institute. Their title is Amazing Offer from Illustra Media — All Videos on Intelligent Design in Life, Now Free to Screen.
It was written by David Klinghoffer, a Discoveroid “senior fellow” (i.e., flaming, full-blown creationist), who eagerly functions as their journalistic slasher and poo flinger. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Our friends at Illustra Media have produced amazing videos over the years making beautifully clear the evidence for intelligent design, in a way that’s accessible to all.
The Discoveroids have mentioned them before, but they’re not alone. Who else was it? Ah yes, it was ol’ Hambo. In Hambo and the Discoveroids — Together at Last, he also refereed to “Our friends over at Illustra Media.”
Okay, we understand what Illustra is all about, so let’s return to Klinghoffer. He says:
Now they are making an amazing and generous offer. While most of us are getting some first-hand experience of what house arrest must feel like, Illustra has made all of their feature-length videos free to screen.
Free? That’s amazing! What a great bunch of folks! After that stunning revelation, Klinghoffer tells us:
The documentaries include [nobody cares]. Discovery Institute scientists and scholars [Hee hee!] are featured in these works, including Stephen Meyer, Jay Richards, Ann Gauger, Richard Sternberg, and Paul Nelson.
That’s priceless material! It’s amazing that they’re giving it away. Klinghoffer continues:
I’m convinced that some positive things will come out of this experience of nationwide shutdown. [Yeah, it’s wonderful!] I don’t know what those will be. Discovery Institute president Steven Buri has offered some thoughts. [Link omitted.]
Let’s read on:
But perhaps one [of those positive things] is an occasion you may have missed up till now, an opportunity to sit down with your family, or by yourself, and consider how the wonders of life give testimony, in scientific terms not only intuitive or emotional ones, to a design at work behind nature’s veil.
Yes! This is your big chance to sit down and contemplate the glory of the intelligent designer — blessed be he! And Klinghoffer’s rosy outlook in these difficult times gives us another opportunity to quote from that scene in Braveheart where Longshanks (Edward I) is planing to send his son’s wife to speak to William Wallace, and he’s warned that she might be killed. Longshanks responds:
My son would be most distressed by that. But if she were to be killed, we would soon find the King of France a useful ally against the Scots. You see, as king, you must find the good in any situation.
Klinghoffer has found the good in the ongoing pandemic situation. Now we come to the end:
Many thanks to the good folks at Illustra. Please look here for a links to the full lineup of free documentaries, good for 60 days. [Link omitted.]
And there you are, dear reader. Now, thanks to the Discoveroids, you know how to use your time while staying at home during the coronavirus situation. Isn’t it wonderful?
