So after writing that last post and fretting that Coyne had provided the ID bloggers with ample fodder for demonstrating the intemperance of their critics, I decided to look around to see if any of the ID blogs had responded. And sure enough, William Dembski has already weighed in on the subject.
The title of his entry: “Jerry Coyne — The Herman Munster of Evolutionary Theory.”
And just below the headline are side-by-side photographs of Coyne and the 1960′s television character. That’s right — his lead point, his main argument, the thing he fancied so clever he just needed to put it on the main page of his blog, was a crack about a person’s physical appearance.
What a classless, no-talent buffoon. I guess in all my hand-wringing about Coyne’s review I had forgotten that, at bottom, the ID folks are such total worthless frauds that I needn’t worry too much about the niceties of the arguments going back and forth.
