PZ Myers tears a strip off Muehlenberg!

Evolutionary biologist and atheist PZ Myers has taken a devastating swipe at Bill Muehlenberg and one of his latest articles over on his Pharyngula website. Check it out!

Bill's angry and unnecessarily cruel article High Court Rules Against Biology – And Redefines Reality To Boot has caught PZ's eye. In the article, Muehlenberg lambasts high court judges for allowing a Sydney resident, Norrie, to be identified as gender neutral.
So, Bill Muehlenberg, defender of science, what exactly have these wicked activist judges done in defiance of all evidence? 
That's the question PZ sarcastically asks, before cutting Muehlenberg down to size with a single withering paragraph:
But hey, Bill, you have another problem. It’s very kind of you to rush to defend ‘science’ (or rather, your unfortunately ill-informed version of it), but if you’re so enamored of it that you wield it as a shield and bulwark to defend your personal bigotry against homosexuals and transgendered people, how come you’re also attacking evolutionary biology? 
Loving your work, PZ! And thanks for the helping hand.

Some of the comments on Pharyngula look all too familiar, when the aptly-named theignored left a comment for Bill:
Neither of my comments seems to have made it through. Fundies are hypocrites when it comes to free speech issues, it seems.

Quite! Bill will always censor when he has no answer. On that theme, I posted a link to PZ Myers' puncturing of his article over on CultureWatch and suggested Bill go along and publically debate Myers over the issue, and who knows, on evolution and other areas of science too.

Guess what? Bill didn't. He will never openly debate because he knows the truth is not on his side and his bigotry and foolishness will be easily exposed.


  1. I guess Bill uses science and also attacks evolutionary biology because the latter is based on preconceptions rather than science...

    1. You are ignorant. Educate yourself. Or would that conflict with your religious views, for which you demand no evidence whatsoever?

    2. ^Look who's talking, you hypocritical excuse for an anti-bully.

    3. No hypocrisy from me, sweetheart, since you *are* ignorant of science if you claim evolution isn't fact. I'm assuming your ignorance stems from a commitment to religious dogma. Correct me if I'm wrong. *waits*

  2. If you haven't spotted it yet, he's writing a lot on a fairly new and notably hateful website called It's hilarious, or would be if it weren't so heartbreakingly stupid.

    1. Thanks Pat. Yes, it's from the equally bigoted and hateful Matt Barber. Ugh. What a cesspit.
