The Discovery Institute has fired a second post at me and my National Geographic article on evolution. I've updated my post to explain why they're shooting blanks. In the comment thread, some people asked why I was wasting time dealing with this stuff. The reason is simple: if I don't show why these attacks are baseless, some people may assume there's some truth to them.
