In another observation of pop culture’s war on ID, I bring you a remark by Wired:
Apparently feeling pressured by Tux, supporters of Darwin, an open-source version of the Mac OS, decided they needed their own mascot. The result is Hexley, a curious platypus who in some images is portrayed with horns and a pitchfork – enough evidence for several intelligent design theorists to offer him as proof of the satanic origins of evolutionary biology.
Krauze and several other intelligent-design activists over at Telic Thoughts have the mistaken belief that in the above post I took the remark by Wired to be serious. To me that remark was an obvious joke, poking fun at intelligent-design activists and creationists. I still can’t find anything in my post that suggests that I was using Wired as a reference. (I can’t even think of a reason why PT would even use random remarks by Wired as a reference for happenings among idists.)
