“Darwinism” is doomed, Perry Marshall says. The entire theory will crumble in 2013 (like the Berlin Wall — may as well start with an offensive comparison to totalitarianism since everyone knows it will get there eventually), if you just suffer through his lessons, send him some money, suspend all logic and reason, send him some money, forget everything you learned in science, and send him a ltittle money.
Plus, he’s figured out how to reconcile Christianity and science. (Call the Templeton Prize committee.) (No, call James Randi and the FBI fraud squad instead.) You can take his course at Coffeehouse Theology (no Mormons need apply, but hey, they teach evolution at their colleges, so they can’t be real saints, can they?).
Yes, Spunky, that’s your Hemingway solid-gold S–t Detector™ clanging in your holster, if you’re using the handy, lithium-battery-powered version. If the rest of the story didn’t set your device off, the lack of an immediate plea for money should have.
Mr. Marshall asks you to turn off your Hemingway, and your mind, relax and float downstream (apologies to the Beatles). You being a Wise Human, should just reset the device, and go back to ignoring Perry Marshall.
Do you remember when people had to do a lot of dope to get these kinds of hallucinations? People like Marshall do damage to Carlos Casteneda and famous hoakum.
The only mystery to me is, why is Marshall bursting out on the scene now, with on-line ads that run even next to P. Z. Myers’ blog Pharyngula? (That’s where I found him; the elves of the internest may give you different ads.) Marshall appears to be a follower, if not disciple, of Hugh Ross. Perhaps he’s really prospecting for leads for his business.
Ignorance abounds in the world. The cure is knowledge and study, not more ignorance and bovine excrement.
