Salvador Cordova Takes a Crap. Again.

Blogging on Pseudo-Scientific Douche-BagsFile this under Sunday Morning Funnies.

I occasionally surf the blogs of pseudo-scientific douche-bags when I’m bored and need a little humor. It’s cheaper than buying a newspaper, and often provides much more entertainment. Once I wade through the usual quotemines, ad hominem attacks, deliberate obfuscations, and outright lies, there’s usually some pretty funny stuff that naturally evolves from a creationist attempting to twist history, science, and reality in general.

This morning was such a morning so as I’m sipping my first cup o’ joe, I begin the trek. I want to make some headway on my novel today, so to make it quick I go right to the perennial golden-tard mine that is Young Cosmos. You might remember its proprietor, Salvador Cordova, Asshole of the Year.Sal takes his temperature rectally.

Slimy Sal does not disappoint.

This morning’s headline?

618 Synagogue’s of Satan honor Darwin on Evolution Sunday

Setting aside his egregious abuse of an innocent apostrophe, it’s quite the little piece of crap.

Right off the bat, we get this lovely little bit, below the fold:

Charles Darwin despised the Christian faith. He said Christianity was “damnable doctrine”. Here is the symbol Darwin clung to toward the end of his life. He ornamented his walking stick with this symbol:

Actually, that’s not what Darwin said. (Surprise, surprise, right?)

Here’s the full quote:

“I can hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true; for if so, the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother, and almost all my best friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine.”

The “damnable doctrine” was that non-believers would be everlastingly punished, a part of the whole, not the entire enchilada. Now as I understand it, Darwin did in fact say some things that were less than complimentary towards Christianity in general, but this wasn’t one of them. Sal is so accustomed to lying and just making shit up, that he even lies when he doesn’t have to. That says something rather profound about his (utter lack of) character.

To illustrate Sal’s latest ball of prevarication, we get a picture hot-linked without credit from this BBC News story about a new exhibition in London that will feature the walking stick and Napolean’s tootbrush. Oddly, there is no mention of Charles Darwin having “clung to [the walking stick] toward the end of his life”, merely that it belonged to him. In fact, Google doesn’t seem to have any such reference to that, and of course Salvador provides none. Given Salvador’s infamous penchant for “Lying for Jesus”, I’d hardly be surprised to find he made that up from whole cloth. Further, the walking stick usually associated with Charles Darwin was carved in a spiral to resemble a twining plant.

Here’s a Creative Commons licensed image from the Wellcome Trust (who actually owns the stick in question) which shows the entirety of the stick Sal gets all breathless over:

Darwin’s Walking Stick Oddly enough, that’s not what I’d call curled or twined at all. It wouldn’t appear to be the same walking stick. This may be the first example in the history of the interwebs of quotemining a picture, but it’s equally likely that he ripped off the technique from someone else. It would certainly fit his profile either way.

There’s also no indication I can find that Darwin himself ornamented the stick at all. For all I can tell, he bought it that way from JCPenney.

Now, that’s just the first paragraph. It gets worse from there, but I need to wrap this up and get to the funny part. (So if you need a laugh, feel free to head on over there to read all about how Christians who don’t deny the overwhelming evidence of evolution are actually Satan worshipers.)

The funny part (finally):

Yesterday, I went through all the posts here back to January of last year, finding ones appropriate for the BPSDB aggregation, and inserting the code, tag, and image.

WordPress has this little quirk about trackbacks. It sends them out automatically to the various links in a post when it gets around to it. Sometimes resaving a post will trigger the trackback, sometimes not. Apparently, it sent one out to this post on YoungCosmos yesterday, and it now shows up in the recent comments. It’s like pouring salt in a wound that almost healed.

Sal responds there to the trackback, because he hasn’t the balls to come out from behind Ftk’s skirt, which is funny as Hell for a whole ‘nuther bunch of reasons.

Here’s what Slimy Sal has to say to brighten my morning, screeching like a grade-school girl at a trackback:

    1. In response to Lou(JanieBelle) the Darwinist Drag Queen, Transvestite, Imitation Lesbian, Transexual Wannabe, I have this to say:

      It’s good to be hated by the right people.

      Johnny Cash

      I don’t mind being hated by Lou(JanieBelle). Darwinits Drag Queen, Imitation Lesbians like (Lou)JanieBelle are properly in the company of ATBC, Ed Brayton, and Paul Zoophile Myers.

I don’t hate you, Sal. Neither does The Boy. You are a disgusting piece of lying crap, but you provide an endless source of amusement, not to mention a lovely example of the moral bankruptcy of your (bowel) movement. You’ll make fine fodder for BPSDB.

P.S. We’re rather honored to be mentioned in the same sentence as Ed Brayton and Dr. PZ. Thanks for the compliment, we could hardly be in better company.

    Excellent.

    Sal obviously knows little about religious iconography. The human skull is portrayed in Hollywood movies as being a totem in Satanism and animist religions, but in Christianity, the skull is a symbol of man’s mortality. There are hundreds of classic religious paintings of Saints in which a human skull is represented.

    What a douchebag.

    I’ll keep an eye on the Technorati feed… it might take a few hours, but this post would be a welcome Christening of BPSDB.org

  2. JanieBelle says:

    It already shows up in my feed reader.

    I wonder if Sal realizes he carries a Satanic symbol on his shoulders all the time…

  3. JanieBelle says:

    Looks like it worked!

  4. Mister DNA says:

    Yeah… good deal! I sent you a PM at AtBC with some sensitive info.

  5. JanieBelle says:

    The Boy picked it up.

    *snicker*

    This post sent out four trackbacks to Young Cosmos.

    whoopsie.

    Strangely, they aren’t appearing in his recent comments…

    😆

  6. Mister DNA says:

    I’ve noticed that Sal is pretty quick on the draw at noticing when someone’s linked to his site.

    I got a good laugh the other day when I sent a trackback to EN&V and several of the DI people came to read about what a douchebag Casey Luskin is…

  7. JanieBelle says:

    Oh Lookie! You’re not going to believe it!

    Sal (talking to a trackback at his own site because he has no balls… again) responds to the charges…

    he fixed the apostrophe.

    Sweet.

  8. Mister DNA says:

    I swear, I’ve read Libyan propaganda that’s more sophisticated than Sal’s ramblings.

  9. […] – is pure propaganda. For a more thorough breakdown of the article, check out JanieBelle’s take on the subject; I’m just going to address two items in Cordova’s […]

  10. JanieBelle says:

    Definitely of the O’Leary school, with perhaps a minor in Dahmer.

    Seen his latest?

    I’m wondering just how voluntary his disassociation with Uncommon Descent may have been after all.

  11. I’ve never heard of this Brother Salvador Cordova fellow until I came to check up on the Dark-Sided things that go on at this interblog.

    But he sure seems to have some impressive ways of thinking, especially since he looks to be a mexican.

    One thing you need to know about them Skull Ornament things. Sure, it was practiced in the past. But they were Roman Catholic papists doing that, not real Christians.

    To a Real Christian, that skull staff is Satanic, and says a lot about Darwin, not that we needed it to figure him out.

    Yuck. This Cordova guy is really unpleasant. I only just heard about him today and now I’m somewhat nauseous.

    I like how he gives the argument “It’s good that you hate me. That means I’m doing the right thing!” You’ll be interested to know that the Phelps clan over at the Westboro Baptist Church has made the same argument. You may know them as the guys who picket the funerals of dead soldiers with the “God hates fags” signs.

    So he’s in good company, I suppose.
