Oh, but I do rankle Mark Armitage. He has taken to cc’ing me his email to others, all in this bluff, indignant, “me am too a scientist” pose, and it is hilarious. This is probably the last one I’ll post here, but I do hope he keeps sending me this stuff — it provides a moment of levity.
How’ve you been lately? Things have been busy on my end. I’m enjoying my internship though.
Anyhow, I thought you might be interested to see this, if you already haven’t. I’ve long been a reader of PZ Myers’ blog (for reasons that I like to call “opponent research”) and, although I’m not sure what exactly he is referring to, I’m very angry that he’s insulting you. I trust you, and I don’t trust him, so, honestly, I’m pretty ticked.
You have your supporters!
Hi Spencer, Nice to hear from you. I’ve been busy. My book called “Jesus is like my Scanning Electron Microscope” has been published, I had an awesome hands-on microscope workshop at the lab in AZ with 15 students who learned about microscopy in the Bible and the evidence for a young earth (complete with electron microscopes), and I have heard from another 6 schools there that want to have a workshop. Plus, the all day symposium at UC Irvine for our local microscopy society featuring several nationally known speakers attracted a good crowd.
Yeah it is awesome about Putrid Zany Myers huh?! I wonder how many times I can get that worm to mention me on his rag of a blog. Maybe he will next criticize my work on radiohalos in granites and helium in zircons – oh yes, and radiohalos in diamonds (all published in secular journals). I hope he does. If he did his homework he would see my papers in Parasitology Research, Microscopy and Microanalysis and the Southern California Academy of Sciences, plus American Laboratory.
Maybe he could organize a letter writing campaign to the editors of those journals to expunge my work and forever strike it from existence. Especially the radiohalos in diamonds since I am the only one on the planet to publish them to date…
But that is what makes him such a buffoon of a bully. He alone could win more people over to our side than we could. It is amazing – the more they spit and curse at us creationists, the more people give up on evolution. That is why pagans like Myers are so spitting mad. I love it! He doesn’t even have the decency to reply to my direct email to him but he has to dump it out to his blog…how funny is that? Let’s see if he posts this one too – you could be famous Spencer.
But don’t be angry – Paul said to count it all joy when men (pagans?) revile you. Its all good.
So I am glad your internship is going well. Keep your head down and learn all you can about the fossil work. Soon you will begin to see the lazy thinking and assumptions they make.
With regards to you and your Dad.

Microscopes, and even electron microscopes, are in the bible? Maybe he should talk about that at his meetings of the Southern California Society for Microscopy and Microanalysis. I’d like to hear about that.
I don’t need to criticize his work on radiohalos, though. It’s already been done, very effectively.
Oh, and Mark — I’m not “spitting mad” — I’m laughing. You are the joke that keeps on giving.
