Now I will admit that I’m not all that sure who Brian Leiter is. But Keith Burgess Jackson doesn’t seem to like him which is a useful indicator. Keith has a new blog all about the delightful Mr. Leiter.

One reason your man Burgess seems to dislike Leiter is that:- "If you have the gall to criticize Darwinism, or to think that problems with Darwinism should be discussed in high-school science classes, you are immediately branded “ignorant” or said to be a “shill” for the “con men” at the Discovery Institute.
