Stranger Fruit

There is egg on my face

I guess we all fell for it. It turns out that the whole Michael Egnor cafuffle was an elaborate ruse to have us Darwinists make fools of ourselves. Boy, do we feel dumb! Still, Egnor has managed to outdo his parodic self with this:

“materialism is nonsense, because if matter and energy are all that exist, then truth doesn’t exist (it’s neither matter nor energy). If truth doesn’t exist, then materialism can’t be true.”

Wow.

    this was a Panda’s Thumb joke

    this was not a DI joke, it was a joke on the DI

    Really? Wow, I’d *never* have guessed! …. especially considering I’m part of the Panda’s Thumb crew.

    The nice thing about this year’s April 1st is that it is sunday. Thus Casey Luskin, Egnor et al. are busy with other things.

    John Lynch,
    if not a Panda’s Thumb joke, it is still a joke on the DI, maybe PZ or Wes.

    Perhaps I should have placed sarcasm tags around my comment. *ahem*

    Even if I hadn’t been alerted to it by the URL, you’d have given yourselves away by the claims of feeling foolish
