Vox Dei Bait

The debate is churning along at Monkey Trials, and I have to say it’s pretty interesting. Hatfield is doing a great job in this titanic struggle between data and “raw intellect”.

Check it out.


  1. Oh, the intellect is quite thorougly cooked. I’ve tried to wade through Vox’s long, odious posts, but they’re just so wrong. After the 5th or 6th large error in a row, one starts to lose hope.

    The interesting thing is, in his last post he suggests that he is winning. Go give some love to Scott.

    I don’t know how Scott Hatfield thought this would be anything other than an exercise in frustration. Vox Day is as invincibly ignorant as he is cartoonishly in love with his own “raw intellect”. Did Scott really think Vox would ever admit to being wrong or ignorant on any one point, let alone admit defeat?

  3. I’m still not sure Scott is the right man for the job. Vox grossly misrepresents Scott for dramatic effect “see: he said that evolution is not really true!” and Scott basically sums that up as them agreeing, completely missing Day playing to the peanut gallery with a wink and a smirk.

  4. Gang — keep in mind that this is the same Theodore Beale who once made the charming observation that

    If it took the Germans less than four years to rid themselves of 6 million Jews, many of whom spoke German and were fully integrated into German society, it couldn’t possibly take more than eight years to deport 12 million illegal aliens, many of whom don’t speak English and are not integrated into American society.

    How does he pull it off? Must be that winsome smile.

    Now, as we can see from the above, Vox Day’s enthusiastic dive to the bottom of the cesspool of ideas has placed him entirely outside the mapped region of the wingnut-wanker continuum. He is also the most intense wankon emitter known to science. According to my dosimeter, any further wankon exposure will force me to avoid the blogosphere for a month. So — thanks for the tip, but there is no way I am going anywhere near Vox Day at the moment.
