Piling on Saletan
Wow! I think I was the first to post on William Saletan's Slate article on the Kansas Kangaroo Court. Since then it seems like everyone has offered their two cents. Here's a list of bloggers that I could find that had something to say about Saletan's ignorance (in no particular order). Call it the "Carnival of the Saletan Haters."
- evolgen - Saletan Fails the Test
- Pharyngula - Saletan and Engbers…aw, heck. I never cared much for Slate, anyway.
- Sci Am Perspectives - Wipe this slate clean
- Evolutionblog - Despair
- Evolving Thoughts - The ID Know Nothing Party
I've also found an article Saletan published three years ago on Intelligen Design. He closes with:
That, in a nutshell, is ID. It offers no predictions, scope modifiers, or experimental methods of its own. It's a default answer, a shrug, consisting entirely of problems in Darwinism. Those problems should be taught in school, but there's no reason to call them intelligent design. Intelligent design, as defined by its advocates, means nothing. This is the way creationism ends. Not with a bang, but with a whimper.Well, at least he knows that ID is a sham. Now, how does he explain his drivel yesterday?
