Sssh! Emperor Darwin Has No Clothes On!

...There is a lawyer's adage that says, "If the facts are on your side, argue the facts. If the law is on your side, argue the law. If neither are on your side, change the subject and go after the motives of your opponent." Bingo! Right out of the Darwinist playbook.

Now, this business of going after your opponent's motives can be tricky. While your objective may be to expose your opponent's hidden agenda, there is a real risk that instead, you will expose your own worst fears...

This article by Joe Renick describes how extreme is the paranoia among Darwinians. Sure, they hate Creationism. And yes, they even get shivers when Intelligent Design is brought up. But to use subterfuge, slander and strong-arm coercion to stifle the very thought of academic freedom?

Man, these guys certainly don't play like they've got the winning hand.
