Of Pandas and People

I’m going through the textbook produced by the Foundation for Thought and Ethics, “Of Pandas and People” (OPAP). I’m not going to say a lot here about it, at least not for another month or so.

But I thought that I should say something about my state of thought about it.

This has to be one of the most snidely mendacious books that it has been my misfortune to read. It’s one thing to be snidely supercilious, if one has the right of things. But OPAP is, in my opinion, deeply clueless about the most basic parts of biology. It gets things wrong that an AP biology student would get right, and then sneers at the biological research community.

Enough said, for the moment.

    Did you expect anything else from the Creationists?

    I’ve read quite a bit of antievolution literature. OPAP is way, way out there.
