Darwinism: Is this a big, fat dogfight in the making? Coyne vs. Matzke?
|November 1, 2011||Posted by News under Intelligent Design, Darwinism, Culture, News|
Jerry “Why Evolution Is True” Coyne (whom UD News did not invent, whatever people say), has launched an attack on Catholic Darwinist John Haught because of his claimed refusal to release the tapes of a debate that would show that he came off poorly vs. Coyne. Coyne says,
This is the story of the cowardly and intellectually dishonest actions of a theologian—one who is suppressing release of a video that shows the lameness of his religious beliefs. It’s also the story of an academic center supposedly dedicated to fostering open debate, but actually complicit in suppressing that debate.
Rest here, and you can make whatever sense of it.
But fellow Darwinist Nick Matze has sprung to Haught’s defense, arguing,
Was it officially agreed to ahead of time that the debate* would be posted online? Yes or no, Jerry, we deserve a straight answer to this.
If not, then you don’t know the reason for the taping, and you don’t really have a right to demand indignantly that it be put online. It depends who paid for it, who did the taping, and for what purpose.
Matzke is a commenter here, and apparently no fan of Jerry and the other gnu atheists, because he has good relationships with Catholic Darwinists.
