No, let's do talk about Fight Club

Stacy McCain, in the midst of his continuing necropsy of the "troubled" and dishonorable Charles Johnson, makes this sage observation:
Say what you will about Pamela Geller, she is not afraid of a fight. And what the conservative movement needs now -- far more than we need ideological unity among intellectuals or would-be intellectuals -- is people who are not afraid of a fight. The Chicago Way has come to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and if anybody in the conservative movement doesn't know what that means, they need to stop hitting the snooze button and wake the hell up. -- The Other McCain: Andrew Jackson's mother advises this response to Charles Johnson's lies

Your Say

When CJ attacked Robert Spencer I called CJ the Dan Rather of the internet. He makes up wild accusations that just feel right in his isolated mind, and the feeling is so strong the actual evidence can be concocted to support the accusations. He's fake but "accurate." He uses the liberal fascist tactic of excusing false accusations because they are made in pursuit of a higher "truth."

"wow" is all I can come up with.

I haven't been to LGF in months - ever since Johnson's crazed crusade against creationism shifted from hysterical to apoplectic (or was it the reverse).

A quick scroll down the main page just left me speechless. It's dKos! And I mean complete with rat-brain-infested comment threads! The stuff CJ is calling 'racist' at the 9/12 event in DC, for instance, is more irrational than the stuff being labeled 'racist' by the usual leftist suspects.

Rather than post a comment, I'm keeping my account there just so's I can get the inside scoop on how bad things are getting.

THIS guy had something to do with the formation of PJM??? What is his game here? Someone must know something. Nervous breakdown? Runaway coke problem? Huffing keyboard cleaner between keystrokes? I don't get it.

This is going to sound like I'm tooting my own horn, but I saw this coming at least a year ago. I made a comment at LGF about how tiresome the ID daily beatings were and the response was immediate and vicious among the true believers. I didn't get banned (as far as I know) because I had my say and never went back. Shake the dust off your sandals and all that.

What I saw was the deep pathology of CJ's obsessions. Once he's locked onto his position, debate is OVER and, like a pit bull, he won't let it go. He did some good things once, so I pity him. I do believe he is psychologically disturbed and pray he finds help.

I am fully in agreement with the proposition that at least one variety of creationism ought to be eradicated, and as soon as possible.

I have no problem with the idea that some extra-universal, supernatural entity (which might as well be called God as anything else) created the Universe in the Beginning. I don't even have a problem with the idea of God having created the first life, although I disagree with that idea. What I do have a problem with is young-Earth Bible-literalist creationism; the idea that, despite immense amounts of evidence to the contrary, the entire Universe was created at 9 AM Oct 3, 4004 BC.

"God did it" is not an acceptable explanation for anything. It doesn't get you anywhere, and anyone who intends to get anywhere in most of the sciences will very soon come to a screeching halt if he accepts the idea of a young Earth. So any country that ends up having that particular bit of nonsense as a core belief will stagnate; socially, technologically and economically.

The evidence available indicates that the universe is something like fifteen billion years old and the Earth is approximately 4.5 billion. For the creationists to be right, the whole of modern science would have to be wrong by six or seven orders of magnitude. The only other explanation possible for such a discrepancy would be that God created the entire universe, complete with the cosmic microwave background, isotope ratios in rocks, carbon-14 levels, tree rings giving a 20,000 BC date, fossils and sedimentary layers, to say nothing of amino acid sequences in common proteins, in such a way as to deceive us. That sounds more like a tactic of the Opposition to me.

And there is at least one example, an existence proof, of speciation in RECENT history. The London Underground mosquito.

Treat the Bible as a source of morality, by all means - although the Old Testament is a pretty rotten one. Don't treat it as a scientific text.
