Like their comrade, Ken Ham (see Ken Ham Says There’s No Extraterrestrial Life and also Creationism & Life on Other Worlds), creationists take a dim view of life on other worlds.
This “Earth Only” view — we’ll artificially dignify it with Latin — Sola Terra — is now seen to be the dogma of the neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute‘s creationist public relations and lobbying operation, the Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids, a/k/a the cdesign proponentsists).
The Discoveroid doctrinal proclamation comes from David Klinghoffer, upon whom the Discoveroids have bestowed the exalted title of “senior fellow” (i.e., flaming, full-blown creationist). We’re certain that you know who Klinghoffer is, but if not, we last described him here. Our most recent post about his work was Klinghoffer v. Stephen Hawking, which showed him at his creationist best.
Klinghoffer’s new article is titled Water on Mars: Materialism’s Shroud of Turin. That’s an odd title. Is it merely a coincidence that one of our posts in June was titled Discovery Institute: The Shroud of Seattle? Yeah, it’s probably a coincidence.
