Respectful Insolence is a repository for the ramblings of the aforementioned pseudonymous surgeon/scientist concerning medicine and quackery, science and pseudoscience, history and pseudohistory, politics, and anything else that interests him (or pushes his buttons). Orac's motto: "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." (OK, maybe it can be just a little bit insolent.)
Another smackdown to be savored
Heh. For any who've been watching Paul at Wizbang make the huge mistake of taking on PZ (of Pharyngula), andy (of The World Wide Rant) and DarkSyde (of Unscrewing the Inscrutable) on evolution, you should check it out now. Another enjoyable smackdown. Not surprisingly, Paul's just digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole. His closing of the old threads on evolution and the opening up of a new one with his "rules" for how it will be conducted and his deleting of comments he doesn't like won't save him, nor will his dissing of PZ.
Maybe he realizes what a hole he has dug himself into. Quoth he: "This is the last evolution post for a few weeks, they wear me out."
Either that, or Paul's finally realizing his mistake. He just won't admit it.
