Here is an updated set of links to postings on the critique of Myers and Dawkins’ response to Myers-Dawkins-Expelled!-Gate. The point of these links is to provide quick access to the critiques coming from The Intersection and Framing Science blogs, and responses to them. I’m not going to keep updating this entry, so if you have any links please add them in the comments.
If your comment gets moderated it is probably because links with comments get tossed automatically in the dungeon, sometimes. I’ll be checking the dungeon now and then and freeing such links.

This is a re-emergence of the Framing Debate between, on one hand, Chris and Matt and a few others, and on the other hand, lots of people. The debate culminated last year in a Smackdown at the Bell Museum, in Minneapolis, with PZ Myers and Yours Truly on the correct, righteous side and Chris and Matt defeated on the incorrect and wrong side.
The early part of this framing debate is well documented in Coturnix’s One Stop Shopping post on framing, here
This should take you about five or six days if you don’t have anything else to do. Please report back with your comments.
