I'm also annoyed at the accommodationist position that Ruse takes from time to time and his support for the Courtier's Reply. He's one of those people who think that there are very sophisticated arguments for the existence of God—arguments that most atheists can't refute.
Ruse's latest foray into this philosophical mine field was just published in The Guardian: Dawkins et al bring us into disrepute.
It's a pile of crap but Jerry Coyne [Ruse gibbers on. . . .] and PZ Myers [Schisms, rifts, and apologia for insanity] have already proven that beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Ruse moved from the University of Guelph to a university in Florida so he could avoid mandatory retirement. Perhaps he should consider voluntary retirement?
