Why we can’t do “junkyard dog” style

Fascinating stuff unfolding at Telic Thoughts (an independent ID blog)*:

Kornbelt 888 asks

Isn’t it about time someone created a junk yard dog style outfit like Eugenie Scott’s racket, except on the other side, to be a continuous hammer on the heads of the Darwinista liars, deceivers, and disinformationists with respect to public schools? I say yes.”

To which chunkdz replies,

I respond: What possible good could come from that?

Kornbelt, you might just as well start a watchdog organization that debunks and exposes the failings of the Taliban. And for all your hard work, the next time they behead some woman in a soccer stadium they will blame your organization for corrupting her.

It’s not like you’re dealing with deliberative, rational, critical thinking, honest truth seekers. The folks at the NCSE imagine themselves to be some self-appointed warrior class, sworn to the cause of protecting society. They are entrenched, indoctrinated, dedicated, and they really, really like what they do. You aren’t going to change that.

Kornbelt, the only thing to do is teach your children to be honest men and women of good character. Teach them to value truth and humility, and to eschew duplicity and bigotry. Teach them the 10 signs of intellectual honesty. The Eugenies, the Gleicks, the Matzkes, the Rosenhouses, the Hesses will become such a stark contrast that no honest young person would ever in a million years take them seriously. These papier mache warriors really are nothing to worry about. And they’ll be gone anyway in 30 or 40 years or so.

Heck, people of UD News gen will be gone  long  before that. We want action before then. Quit fronting the fraud.

* Uncommon Descent is an independent ID blog too. Like, we’re just Five People Who Care. We know that Darwinism is a big fat fraud but, sorry, we are not the right-wing Christian apocalypse. And one of us isn’t even an American. Or even male. Like, what were you thinking anyway? Revise your dam expectations.

  1. The impression I gained was that chunkdz’s primary message was that only the kind of wry, laconic, understated but very pointed, derision, such as the ‘Just add water’ trope makes much sense, when dealing with the insensate. This is at odds to some extent with an appearance of urgency, while not minimising the need for it, in reality.

    Talking in terms of 30 to 40 years, imo, is simply likely to be erroneous, because too long simply from the viewpoint of plausibility.

    Life itself debunks darwinism.

  3. The folks at the NCSE imagine themselves to be some self-appointed naturally-selected warrior class.

    FIFY.
