Like Banning Books, Only More Juvenile

This individual thinks he needs to hide books in bookstores for the sake of science in order to help Darwin's theory along. The intent and effect is the same as book banning: access to certain books is restricted. People who want to buy a book will not be able to. They will look for the book, not find it, ask a clerk, and the clerk will also not be able to find it. One may quibble about how this differs from book banning, but the intent and results are the same. The only meaningful difference is the degree and scope of success he will achieve.

This Darwinist is intent on undermining the free marketplace of ideas. Instead of using civil discourse and reason to defeat the person with whom he disagrees, he is trying to silence his opponent. I guess this guy follows the moral precept: if you disagree with the content of a book, hide it so others cannot read it. Ponder what would happen if everyone followed his example.

Another clear case of Darwinian Fundamentalism.

Banning books seems to be a favored activity of the followers of Darwin, as the posts here and here demonstrate.

Hat tip to Post-Darwinist.

Ooh, but they can't be wrong, their cause is holy and just! Oops, I mean, their cause is the REAL true faith! Bah, I mean, the real true science!
