Want to know what I consider to be the biggest shame of the online Intelligent Design sites?
Well, first the upside: They have some great contributors. I really enjoy reading Thomas Cudworth, Cornelius Hunter, Mike Gene, Bradford, etc. I disagree with them often, but they are certainly engaging. Even approachable.
But that approachability is the downside. You know what 99% of every ID author's time is spent doing online?
Arguing with rude, pissy nitwits in comments sections.
Seriously, go to any ID blog and that's where you'll see the majority of their energy focused. It's such a damnable shame.
