From this 2003 article, we have Powerline's Buttrocket:
I think that Darwin's theory of macroevolution is plainly wrong, on strictly scientific grounds.
In the first place, anyone referring to "Darwin's theory of macroevolution" can immediately be dismissed as a complete crank. This will be the topic of a future article, but the important point is that that phrase is pure, unadulterated creationist gibberish. But wait. It gets better.
Referring to the Texas Tech professor who refused to write a letter of recommendation for a student who was an unabashed, young-earth creationist, Buttrocket writes:
One could argue (as Volokh did, if I remember the conversation correctly) that, apart from the merits of the issue, a professor is under no duty to write a recommendation for a student, and therefore should be able, legally and morally, to refrain from recommending any student on any non-discriminatory basis. But discrimination against Christians, observant Jews and conservatives is much more prevalent in our society than race or sex discrimination (putting aside, of course, affirmative action).
But the student wasn't being denied a letter of recommendation based on his religious views. He was being denied based on the fact that he was an idiot who didn't understand even the most fundamental aspects of science.
There's so much more to eviscerate about Buttrocket's gibberish, but here's the best part:
As to the Texas Tech professor, I doubt that he is very atypical. Karl Popper argued long ago that Darwin's theory of evolution was never a matter of science; it was always about faith.
This claim about philosopher Karl Popper is one of the hoariest and most-refuted chestnuts in the creationist arsenal. Back in 1976, in discussing natural selection, Popper wrote:
"I have come to the conclusion that Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, but a metaphysical research programme - a possible framework for testable theories."
Only two years later, however, after having natural selection explained to him a little more fully, Popper issued a very unambiguous retraction:
"I have changed my mind about the testability and logical status of the theory of natural selection; and I am glad to have an opportunity to make a recantation."
documentation of which can be found on the Web in numerous places such as here and here. And it's not like Popper's retraction is all that hard to find, if you care to look.
In other words, well over 20 years after Popper cleared things up, we have Buttrocket, either too stupid or too dishonest to represent him properly. And these folks are Time's "Blog of the Year"? Who's next? Michelle Malkin? Ann Coulter? Little Green Cowards? It's not like they could make a worse choice, is it?
