Every time I think American Christian pundits can't get any stupider, Dinesh D'Souza shows up with another book to prove that that ball is very much still in play.I think the title of the book got cut off, though -- I understand the full title to have been Life After Death: Evidence, Schmevidence.
Dinesh D'Souza was the right's point man in the 1990s for the attack on "political correctness" on campus. Kind of an American Ezra Levant. He was famous for attacking affirmative action for letting "unintelligent" African-Americans onto prestigious campuses. And he hated the idea that there were ideas, research or books produced outside of western European civilization that had any cultural, philosophical or scientific value.And then you read this kind of thoroughly pedestrian, bonkers stuff. At least he's been consistently wrong for the past 15 years!
Rob: Not sure if you're aware, but Ray Comfort has a date set to distribute his abridged version of Origin of the Species at 21 Canadian universities: Teh stupid is coming to town. Hopefully this will amount to nothing up here, but I thought it right up your alley, as I heard that UofT is on the list (as is McMaster and York) (source: Youtube video)I'd hope that the word spreads so that these dumbasses can be laughed off of campus if they show up.
And then you read this kind of thoroughly pedestrian, bonkers stuff. At least he's been consistently wrong for the past 15 years!Dinesh D'Souza is too unintelligent to be just wrong. At least now, though, his lack of intelligence is not so easily masked by complicated class war issues, the debate of which did and does require intellectual/empirical rigour. Bereft of those, he now has to articulate what he is *for* and in that, shows just how of his league he is.
