Derbyshire on the creationists   posted by dobeln @ 7/13/2006 06:47:00 AM

Once again into the breach, etc. Derbyshire, when responding to the latest creationist article published in National Review (link), makes this observation:

It's a wearying business, arguing with Creationists. Basically, it is a game of Whack-a-Mole. They make an argument, you whack it down. They make a second, you whack it down. They make a third, you whack it down. So they make the first argument again.

..Which, I gather, is why this blog has outsourced that fight to "The Panda's Thumb", leaving us time for more worthwhile pursuits, such as extensive headbutting commentary and arguing over Finns in comments. No, I really mean it. Head over to and search for "evolution" if in doubt.
