Deepak – Stop Digging!

I seem to recall that I used a similar tagline for Professor Rubenstein a couple of months back when he followed up one load of codswallop with an even bigger load.
Now Deepak Chopra has done the same. Apparently stung by the derision heaped on him following his asinine crap in the Huffington Post a couple of days ago, he’s retorted with another post. I love the somewhat hurt tone he adopts:
If you are opposing my comments with passionate vehemence, I’d suggest that you are not friendly to the open discussion of evolution, no matter which camp you belong to.
No, Deepak, the passion comes from a sense of frustration over people like you who never seem to understand that what you are saying is false and the resulting overwhelming sense of irritation that, because you hold doolally ideas, then the rest of us with more than one brain cell to rub together have to "respectfully engage in a polite discussion". Sorry, Deepak, but crap is crap, and tying it up in the fancy ribbon of "respect" doesn’t change the sight, or the smell, of a stinking pile of ordure one jot or tittle.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
