A mere three weeks ago I pointed out a splendid example of intellectual inconsistency among the internet atheists, especially PZ Myers: while they were eager to embrace the allegations of Christian Blasey Ford with very little evidence, they dismissed Tchiya Amet’s allegations against Neil deGrasse Tyson for lack of evidence. What made this quite odd is that Amet had a stronger case than did Ford. So why were they so eager to believe Ford while being so dismissive of Amet?
Well, as it turns out, two more women have come forward to accuse Neil deGrasse Tyson of creepy sexual misconduct. It’s sure beginning to look like creepy sexual misconduct is a common trait of popular critics of religion, leaving us to wonder just how much of their anti-religious posturing is tied to a rationalization for creepy sexual behavior.
Anyway, it now seems like PZ Myers is willing to believe the women. Kinda. He’s now calling on Neil deGrasse Tyson to respond with a short blog entry entitled, “No more stonewalling.” Huh? What does he mean “no more” stonewalling? When it was just a lone black woman making the accusation, PZ said there wasn’t enough evidence to even merit a response. Now that a white, female Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy has her own accusation, it’s different, eh?
