Denyse O'Leary is a very strange individual.
To the rest of the world, "intelligent design" (ID) is deader than disco. For years, its supporters pretended "evolutionism" was on the verge of collapse, and that ID was about to overturn "Darwinism" and revolutionize science. Now, even Michael Medved, long term scourge of liberalism and newly minted Discovery Institute fellow, admits:-
"the important thing about Intelligent Design is that it is not a theory - which is something I think they [its supporters] need to make more clear. Nor is Intelligent Design an explanation. Intelligent Design is a challenge. It’s a challenge to evolution. It does not replace evolution with something else."Indeed. Despite over a decade of hype, ID has produced no research, no discoveries and no science...
For Denyse however, like the Black Knight in Python's Holy Grail, victory is ever-near.
From her bunker at Uncommon Descent, O'Leary's latest post tells us "Why I Think ID Is Winning".
First, she complains that the unknown processes which created life from non-life over a period of billions of years under circumstances we don't yet understand aren't repeated daily in front of her. Stupid? Yeah - but as she proves time and time again, O'Leary is no scientist. In fact, she seems to have severe problems with her reading comprehension.
Having taken a pop at New Scientist, O'Leary then goes after - would you believe it - me. Yup, PTET, fresh from the blagospheric wilderness... O'Leary blathers:-
"I put New Scientist at the high end. For the low end, try this stuff. These people sesem, for the most part, incapable of a civilized argument - or at least that is how they choose to represent themselves. That can’t be good news for their cause."
Huh? Has Denyse actually read this blog? I very much doubt it. I myself was banned from Uncommon Descent long ago - like anyone else who dares ask questions which embarrass O'Leary and her idiot colleagues.
Sure, I've been rude to Denyse. I've even apologized for that. But, for the life of me, I can't see why my occasional posts or my irrelevant blog (2,638,306th in the blogosphere!) would be evidence of anything... Other than, perhaps, O'Leary's delusional mental state.
Maybe she wants Uncommon Descent's readers to see how it's own "blogczar" DaveScot called her a "Canadian Cross Dresser" and a "Morhpodyke". Who knows?
For the rest of you... Hello and welcome. You can comment here freely. Please take a look around :)
