Big-Time Damage Control at Uncommon Descent

When Islamic terror group ISIS came out against the teaching of evolution the good folks at our favorite creationist blog, Uncommon Descent, started getting very nervous. Why?

Because they did the same thing recently.

Now it's time for damage control. You can practically see the sweat dripping down Denyse "Sneery" O'Leary's face as she struggles to explain why intelligent design creationists have nothing, nothing at all in common with the totalitarian murdererers of ISIS. But her "explanation" consists of nothing but mangled bafflegab.

Since Denyse has a long history of making invidious comparisons, it's a pleasure to see her hoist by her own petard.

"iron law of Nature–which compels the various species to keep within the definite limits of their own life-forms when propagating and multiplying their kind."

Hitler, Mein Kampf.

I believe I was the one who linked them to the news article about ISIS banning evolution.

They didn't mention that Boko Haram also bans evolution.

I would go over there and diogenize their "hitler was a darwinist" shtick, but they silently banned me again from the Land of the Free.

Meanwhile, at this thread, some idiot WallStreeter43 keeps accusing me of being scared to comment at a blog where IDers silently banned me from commenting:

That'll teach you to mess with the Holy Holographic Quantum-Entangled Radiocarbon-Proof Shroud of Turin, Diogenes.
