Human Exceptionalism

Life and dignity with Wesley J. Smith.

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!
