How sweet

That nice but batty lady, Denyse O’Leary, is teaching a course in intelligent design. At the University of Toronto. Woe, the devaluation of a great research university…!

Oh, but wait. It’s actually taught at St Michael’s College, a Catholic institution within the University of Toronto. And you have to look at the course entry to believe it. It’s a non-credit course under the category of “Scripture, Spirituality & Pastoral Care”, and the listing is buried in the middle of a lot of theology, mysticism, New Age nonsense, and gibbering madness.

it fits in perfectly.

    Oh, and she banned me from her blog.

    Another fine example of those evil atheist evolutionist ‘scientists’ using their influence to silence dissent. If they’re so convinced their so-called ‘theory’ of evolution is correct, then why are they so afrai–

    What? She’s not an evolutionist?
    But she banned–

    She supports ID? Then why….

    Must have been some kind of technical problem, Jeffox. Everyone knows the religious just love to listen to others’ viewpoints. You’ll find countless examples of such in the Bible and in the history of Christian–

    What?

    O’Leary is the one who called me an “ill-tempered illiterate”. I can’t help but smile.

    @ Brownian and Blake Stacey:

    As far as I’m concerned, she’s a bitch. I have never been banned from anywhere else, for anything. But, like I wrote, she’s got this unwarranted persecution complex that she uses to “project” on to anybody who doesn’t see things exactly her way.

    I have the theory that (judging from her photo) she’s half porcupine. Whatever her real problem is, she should be locked up for it, IMHO.

    And to think, Canada also gave us BTO and Rush.

    Her guest speaker, Behe (just hear the class tee-hee),
    Will make irreducible claims
    (If you point out one blunder, it all falls asunder–
    Add drinking, and now you’ve got games!)

    ROTFL! Irreducible claims! My day is saved. :-)
