Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Elsberry Gets the JoMo Challenge

My friend Wesley Elsberry has received the always amusing Jomo challenge. Joseph Mastrapaolo is a cantankerous and endlessly ridiculous old academic associated with the Institute for Creation Research who plays Batman to Karl Priest’s Robin. Priest sends out emails challenging evolution advocates to put up $10,000 and take their case before a judge. You can see the actual text of the challenge here, and more correspondence with the intrepid Mr. Priest here and here. More importantly, see Wesley’s response on the Panda’s Thumb. Welcome to the “debate dodgers” list, Wesley!
