#5: Desmond Paul Allen


Coming in at #5 is a very special Loon, Desmond Paul Allen.

Allen is a prolific author of incoherent babble on creationism, politics, and the "Question of Reality" [?]. His works include the unintentional Sokal hoax “An Apology and Unification Theory for the Reconciliation of Physical Matter and Metaphysical Cognizance”, published in the "peer reviewed" "research" journal Answers (run by
Answers in Genesis) - an article premised, it seems, on the looniest things Kent Hovind ever said.

His “peer reviewed” journal article is dissected here: http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2008/02/which_one_of_you_little_rascal.php

Short abstract: “God spoke and it was so; so that our physical universe is essentially an electromagnetically charged holographic medium, as it were, empowered by the Spirit of God. Here there exists a certain entanglement between the quantum state and the Spirit of God.” It deteriorates from there.

Diagnosis: Absolutely, utterly unhinged from reality, total loon, delusions of grandeur; his turgid metaphysical ramblings do presumably enjoy only limited impact, however.
