Edward T. Oakes, S.J. is Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of St. Mary of the Lake, the seminary for the Archdiocese of Chicago, and author, most recently, of Infinity Dwindled to Infancy: A Catholic and Evangelical Christology (Eerdmans).

In short...an asinine fuckwit. Good for a laugh though, especially when he referenced that other asinine asshat John Haught, who is acclaimed by his dimwitted peers as a "sophisticated theologian". Jerry Coyne had an interesting demolition of Haught a few years ago on his WEIT forum....John Haught’s “sophisticated” theology: evolution is God’s drama.

Jerry then tore him a new one in a debate last year....My debate with John Haught in Kentucky.

So unsophisticated was this expert "sophisticated theologian" that he refused to release the video of said debate because of embarrassment....Theologian John Haught refuses to release video of our debate.

After much ado, Haught relents and allows the videos release, but only on the proviso that Jerry posts an open letter of complaint. Said debate can be watched here for those interested.

Apologies to Quine for going off a wee bit, but I think it's important to get a handle on the sort of numskulls that are calling us out for lack of understanding of their particular version of the bollocks and the pretzelmen they use as "expert"reference.
