Oh, The Irony!

No sooner do I finish my response to John Calvert's “Are We Liars?” essay, then I come across this post from Jack Krebs over at The Panda's Thumb. Here's the opening of the post:

I don’t use the word “lie” loosely. I know it means deliberately saying something that one knows not to be true.

But in this case, I am willing to claim that John Calvert lied to the audience at his presentation at a conference hosted by the conservative American Enterprise Institute in Washington D.C. this past week. I hope to write more about Calvert’s presentation there, which was in conjunction with a speech by Barbara Forrest, but here I want to concentrate on one comment made by Calvert concerning Kansas Citizens for Science.

Go read the rest!
