Creationism at the Huffington Post

The Huffington Post has always been friendly toward “new age” quack medicine, but I have to admit I was a little surprised to see them actually publishing the work of Discovery Institute shill David Klinghoffer: David Klinghoffer: The Dark Side of Darwinism.

If you’ve ever read an article by this clown, you already know the drill; Charles Darwin was a “sinister” racist, his ideas inspired eugenics and the Third Reich, blah blah, yadda yadda.

Klinghoffer’s rancid, dishonest piece is filed under “Religion and Science,” but it should have been filed in the trash. What a disgrace.

Here’s an LGF search for our articles on Klinghoffer’s long history of shilling for creationism.

    “…but I have to admit I was a little surprised to see them actually publishing the work of Discovery Institute shill David Klinghoffer.”

    Not me. At least, not since last Halloween, when they put up articles promoting belief in ghosts and the afterlife. And we already had Deepak Whatshisname, in addition to the body-cleansing stuff. If it’s popular, HP goes with it. If it’s a piece written by a celebrity, HP prints it. I just summed up their editorial philosophy.

    Klinghoffer’s point escapes me. Sure, Darwin was racist by today’s standards–as was everyone else back then. So what? Klinghoffer is challenging the validity of evolution, which has zero to do with Darwin’s personal views on race or the extent to which lunatics have interpreted his science. Or with how Darwin dressed, what he ate for breakfast, or whether or not he belched in public. It’s personal attack, guilt by association, and probably some other age-old logical dodges I didn’t notice. Way to go, HP.
