several logical fallacies:
- He uses a false analogy by equating science with evolution. Not all science is dependent on evolution. To say that I cannot examine and or question the base tenets of evolution is to say that I cannot engage in science.
- He begs the question - to question the veracity of evolution is absurd therefore it should not be questioned - which is also circular reasoning.
- He attacks any individual on the basis of their curiosity about evolution – ad hominem.
- There are many others he commits here - read through the list and see if you can pick them out.
Perhaps the most striking thing about this statement is how closely it echoes the arguments that were thrown at Darwin back in the day. He could not question God. Now we cannot question Darwin. Really?
