I’m Certified as an “American Loon”
Ha! Two anonymous bloggers who operate something called The Encyclopedia of American Loons, have listed me as a member of their aviary. From the Wesley J. Smith entry:
Diagnosis: More careful, and less obviously insane than many of his fellow [Discovery Institute] Fellows, Smith is nevertheless driven by dogma in selecting which evidence he chooses to endorse. He enjoys a rather high profile, and must be considered dangerous.
Gosh, I hope so.
I am apparently a loon because the authors disagree with me about matters ranging from embryonic stem cell research to Terri Schiavo. But the Encyclopedia doesn’t state exactly where I am mistaken, why my views make me certifiable, or what “dogma” drives me. They just lazily link to articles that have been critical of my work.
Pretty funny. But I do wish they would use a picture of me that isn’t ten years old. I’ve shaved fellows!
