Yesterday the author of the book I’m reading — the good “doctor” Carl Werner — popped by to read and comment on my reviews of “Evolution, The Grand Experiment”. The “Grand Experiment” is Werner’s inadequate attempt to arm creationists with even more clown clothing and third-class parlor tricks when “defending” their self-defeating effort at supporting Genesis as science.
Here’s what Werner wrote:

I enjoyed your review. I especially like this line “Dr. Werner, you are truly a master of evolution.”
The only criticism I have is this: Criticizing the readers is a little unfair. Many people who read the book believe in evolution (like yourself) and to lump all of the readers into the category of “idiots” is like shooting yourself in the foot.
Dr. Carl, author, Master of Evolution
I excitedly responded, and you can see the interaction here.
One would think after the tongue lashing I throw down on the book that he would have been less cool. I can completely respect his curt candidness. Although, I bet he’s not coming back to answer my questions.
I have a feeling that the master of evolution has been lurking for a while, and in a bout of spontaneous liquid courage, he posted his comment. From my blog stats, I’ve been getting notifications that clicks to my blog have been coming from someone googling “dr carl werner” for the last couple weeks. Although yesterday and Friday, there were no such searches.
Surely that means he’s been hovering his mouse over “comment” for a couple days.
Proud of attracting the busy “Doctor” who’s busily disproving evolution being fair and honest about the “controversies” of evolution, I dropped the wonderboys of the Pullman WA WAs a line. Boy how my little guys have not grown. I really thought they would be convinced by my annoyingly supercilious diatribe, and cease supporting the part of the clan catering to ignorant illiterates and children who color in books like Werner’s.
No such luck.
They did however build me a blog shrine explaining their “views” in great detail.
I really am.
Thanks Justy and Marky!
What’s the proper etiquette when sending a thank you gift to someone for completely validating one’s perspective? Is it six bags of pampers, six bibs with clever quips stitched in them and a bowl with a plasticky rubbery spoon? Or is that only after the second major validation?
I would hate sending the wrong gift when children are so gracious with their time.
So thanks, boys. It’s such a very sweet gesture.
If you didn’t go read from the link above, go read it.
Be sure to weigh yourself before you go over and then after after you leave. You will probably be happy to have lost so much weight. Unfortunately, it will be weight lost in brain capacity.
Just think how svelte you’ll look in your new speedo …
…New speedo swim cap.
Bah dum pah!
