Look! Way down there! A tap-dancing lunatic!

In case you haven’t noticed what’s going on in the “recent comments” over there in the sidebar, a fellow named Robert O. Adair, who claims to have been an active academic for over fifty years, recently emerged from an acidic creationist swamp and begun commenting on a 21-month-old post I made that mocked Bill Dembski’s and Sal Cordova’s attempts to paint Jerry Coyne’s and Richard Dawkins’ panning of Michael Behe’s book Edge of Evolution as complaints borne of fear and scientific ignorance.
I’ll offer no further comment, only a link to Mr. Adair’s long-defunct and eye-searing blog, and encourage you to check out the cartwheeling intellectual plane crash that shows no signs of abating (mainly because I keep egging the guy on). I have no idea why Mr. Adair decided to revive the post–he’s not someone who’s posted here in the past–but in any case, I am fairly certain that this blog has never been treated to someone quite like him. We had a perseverating nutcase back when Jim ripped the ROM Machine (“get a complete cardiovascular workout in four minutes”), but even that guy had a sense of humor.

    Be careful, dude, Adair’s a lifetime member of Mensa!

    Wow, the “Adair Institute”! How impressive! :oP
    Here’s a fun game, I wonder how many “institutes” I can start up in the next 5 minutes …

    I’ve never once met (on-line or not) anyone who claims MENSA membership who isn’t an entirely shitty representative of said organization.
