I Look At Paul Z. Myers’ Writing and See Evil


Samaritan's Purse - Helping In Jesus' Name

imageI read a blog post written by University of Minnesota Biology professor Paul Z. Myers linked by Stacy McCain.  Myers writes:

First, never quote Mother Teresa at me — she was an evil hag who worshipped poverty, who did not help people except to encourage them to suffer more for her faith, while she lived in comfort and traveled far and wide to receive the accolades of the gullible. I would never find the words of that wicked woman persuasive.

Secondly, the standard bullying tactics of waving bloody fetuses might cow the squeamish, but I’m a biologist. I’ve guillotined rats. I’ve held eyeballs in my hand and peeled them apart with a pair of scissors. I’ve used a wet-vac to clean up a lake of half-clotted blood from an exsanguinated dog. I’ve opened bodies and watched the intestines do their slow writhing dance, I’ve been elbow deep in blood, I’ve split open cats and stabbed them in the heart with a perfusion needle. I’ve extracted the brains of mice…with a pair of pliers. I’ve scooped brains out of buckets, I’ve counted dendrites in slices cut from the brains of dead babies.

You want to make me back down by trying to inspire revulsion with dead baby pictures? I look at them unflinchingly and see meat. And meat does not frighten me.

This is the same guy who states that the horror in Philadelphia is not about abortion.  Sure it is, it’s about abortion providers and advocates turning a blind eye to one of their own.  The fact that this vile man is receiving a state government salary and influencing young minds absolutely sickens me.

    Myers sickens me too.

      I’m sure the feeling is mutual.

        Sure it is, as a reactionary with a fragile ego Myers despises anyone who doesn’t agree with his core beliefs.

    PZ must’ve noticed that people haven’t been talking about him for a while, so he decided to say something shocking and repulsive in order to garner some headlines. Hopefully the University of Minnesota will finally get tired of his antics like MS-NBC got tired of Olbermann’s.

      Oh you wound me. Stop. Very courageous calling me a name without revealing your name.

    “Sure it is, it’s about abortion providers and advocates turning a blind eye to one of their own.”

    It’s not at all about religious-right ideologues, cutting off every available option for women that is possible, and then blaming them when they desperately turn to anyone who will provide abortion services. Now that so few doctors will face the death threats and bombings that you “Christians” have gleefully been cheerleading for years, you want to blame the women and organizations themselves.

    Sanctimonious wanker is a low-blow to wankers everywhere, in your case.

    I guess if I say something in PZ Meyers defence my comments will get blocked …. again. Not that my last post was contentious in any way. I am just saying that he is certainly not a “vile man” as the writer tries to make out.

      No if you are the commenter I’m thinking it was the language you used, and I disagree.

        Oh heavens! Feel free to smear a real live person, but if the comments in response utilize a few choice Anglo-Saxon words, then all bets are off!

        By God, you hypocrites are hilarious.
