1 Nov – Niente

PZ is catching his breath after setting a brisk lie pace for most of October. In the 155 days since we started PZWatch, we’ve catalogued 170 lies. That works out to 1.1 lies a day.

We expect that from politicians and partisan political operatives. We expect a little more from skeptical atheists.

28 Oct – Zero Lies

Also, PZ still hasn’t acknowledged his role in spreading the internet hoax we exposed over the weekend, and at this point there’s probably zero chance he ever will.

20 Oct – Two Days Without a Lie

We saw a muted PZ Myers today. He let other people do his lying for him, but never crossed that threshold himself.

12 Oct – No Lies!

There’s an old saying that goes something like this: even on a day where there is no news, the media will still report it in the same breathless fashion.

Do you know of another website that promises you no content when there is nothing to report?

But, then again, for PZ Myers, a day without lying may actually be newsworthy.

7 Oct – No Lies…For Now

Your intrepid fact-checkers didn’t find a lie in any of PZ’s posts today, but we haven’t given up.

PZ continued his annual Fall tradition of bashing and berating college-aged kids who have the gall to hold conservative ideas and the desire to debate and spread them. He offered a critique of the latest issue of UMM’s alternative student newspaper, The North Star.

But, here’s the curious bit – he didn’t reproduce any of the articles in the paper, nor did he link to anywhere his readers could find it. That, friends and neighbors, is what’s called a warning sign. Our spidey-senses went into overdrive when we saw it, something which highly correlates with a PZ Myers lie.

We’ve reached out to The North Star via email and Twitter, and we’ll update this post if or when they get back to us.

In the meantime, if you’d like to witness a sixty-year-old tenured biology professor verbally abuse a group of teen aged college kids for holding political opinions with which he doesn’t agree, go here.

24 Sep – Again, No Lies

PZ posted only once, and complained in that post about Richard Carrier calling him a liar.

So it is a charge that bothers him. He does still at the very least pay lip service to the idea that truth is a desirable quality.

That’s news to us. We have one hundred and twenty-four examples which suggest the opposite.
