Our New Friend, Laurence A. Moran

Wow! As David Klinghoffer points out, Larry Moran says he agrees with the Scientific Dissent from Darwinism statement.

The statement says

We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged.
And then the University of Toronto biochemist says, "Only an IDiot would claim that supporters of this statement are also creationists." We do not in fact make that claim, Larry, but stay with us.

He ends with, "Project Steve, with 1249 signatures, is an excellent parody of the [aforementioned] creationist list."

Now let's see.

  1. People on the Dissent from Darwinism list are supporters of the statement.

  2. Larry also agrees with the dissent statement.

  3. Larry says only IDiots claim that supporters of this statement are creationists.

  4. Larry says that Project Steve is a excellent parody of the "creationist" list, thus in effect calling supporters of the statement creationists.

Wait. Following the logic there, that would seem to make Dr. Moran an IDiot, in his own eyes anyway. Not that, in pointing this out, I mean it unkindly.
