Kevin Myers / Evolution a belief system!!!!!!!

Post by kevinmcinerney » Wed Sep 15, 2010 7:49 pm

Dear Atheists

This is Kevin the from the Galway Skeptics. I thought this link may interest you.

http://www.independent.ie/opinion/colum ... 37780.html

It was written by the repsected Irish times writer Kevin Myers and it dwells on the

current lack of proof for biochemical evolution. Myers uses this gap to term evolution a belief system

and he uses several misguided analogies, of the blender variety, to make his point. I hoped somebody here you would be better

placed to make an informed response.

Kind Regards,


Kevin Mc Inerney

Kevin Myers- Professional Troll

Stole this from Reddit. I won't even waste time reading his tripe. All he wants is attention. Ignore him.

That's the Indo not the Irish Times - though Kevin Myerse did evolve as a right-wing opionist in the Times.

Kevin Myers has always been a provocative attention seeker. He seems to think his particular brand of contrarianism elevates him to the status of Christopher Hitchens.

Reading through the article, it appears he approves only of strong negativism or skepticism while ruling out any positivism or pro-activity in the face of anti-scientific theory.
