But has anyone else noticed that Coyne is, well... something of a pussy?
I mean, I normally don't dip into that end of the foul language pool, but holy hell. Mister 'Jebus' who can't talk about a theistic idea or even personality without lapsing into namecalling, snide remarks, and mockery just lapses into the worst kind of whimpering, 'Why do you have to be mean?' pansy when an atheist or himself is mocked. Especially by a fellow atheist.
Really, check out StL. Look at the quoted exchanges. Dennett isn't even being a quarter of the asshole he is when he talks about dualism or the like. But Coyne is immediately quivering and offended and just the biggest dweeb on the internet in response.
I can just imagine how he'd react if he had a public debate with someone who flat out mocked his supposed intelligence instead of kowtowing to him as chief scientist in charge of fruit fly fornication.
