it’s all academic

Warning: many sarcastic uses of quotation marks ahead. You may roll your eyes at each one:

Today in Slate, their Hot Document is the style guide and “reviewing” guidelines for the Young Earth-endorsing journal the “Answers” “Research” Journal. I could call them on pretty much any aspect of the document – to pretend that it is academic or properly peer reviewed if they have to do things like allow pen names is pretty low, and to me suggests that what they’re trying to do is a pile of – how can I put this politely – complete and indefensible fabrication. If you have to go sneaking around and to such extreme lengths to try to get people to accept what you are saying, maybe there’s something wrong with the message. Ah, the joys of mixing religion and science.
