Please ignore earlier comment (or delete), figured it out now (nice summary on Pharyngula). My opinion...what a waste of time and energy.

Yeah but...Pharyngula...

My view: it's good to take the piss out of those who deserve it. And the thought police rank high on that list. YMMV.

Also: that's a particularly dishonest post...even by Pharyngula standards...

PZ goes a bit far out on these issues, I don't agree with him a lot of the time. However, he's sharp when it comes to the science/creationism debate.

He also had some nice things to say about philosophy (nice take down of Bill Nye when Nye totally flubbed it).

PZ calls things out as he sees them and is willing to learn...there's a lot to be said for that.

Word.
I really couldn't agree more about that.
It's really only with respect to the PC stuff that I tend to have a not-terribly-high opinion of the guy.

He presses my limits on the PC stuff also. It just shows that even people who can think critically on issues tend to turn off that part of their mind/personality on certain topics.
