Ho hum. Jesus Christ, have these people no pride?
I wonder how much this guy is getting paid to make no sense. I hope a lot.
I’ll say this. Michael Egnor has a sense of humor. For example, these hijinks:
“Without using evolutionary theory, doctors and scientists have discovered vaccines (Jenner, in the 18th century, before Darwin was born), discovered that germs cause infectious diseases (Pasteur, in the 19th century, who ignored Darwin), discovered genes (Mendel, in the 19th century, who was a priest and not a supporter of Darwin’s theory), discovered antibiotics, and unraveled the secrets of the genetic code (the key to these discoveries was the discovery of the apparent design in the DNA double helix).”
So, ignoring various clear-as-day screamers, we have:
A. Stuff happened before Darwin.
B. These things were scientific.
C. Therefore, evolution is false.
Let me see if I follow:
- Richard Nixon was president in 1968.
- There was no Internet in 1968.
- Therefore, the Internet does not exist.
The whole post is a joke, of course, and Egnor’s grandstanding is especially cruel in light of the fact that surgeons aren’t supposed to be dumb.
