|To be fair, the stupidity of the Dover creationists was not part of the Wedge strategy. No self-respecting Wedgie would bungle public relations and legal strategy that badly. The Discovery Institute advised against Dover, and Dembski sued the Dover legal team for mega bucks. The boneheads in Dover were self-appointed ambassadors of ID, not the real thing. They were not true defenders of the Wedge.|
Does "self-respecting Wedgie" sound oxymoronic to anyone besides me?
Dembski made megabucks off ID? Interesting point, Salvador.
Dembski was, in fact, one of the few who came out ahead financially.
- Pepper Hamilton waived over $1 million in legal fees
- The plaintiffs got $1 each
- The expert witnesses for the plaintiffs got nothing
- Thomas More got bupkis, other than the pleasure of being threatened by Dembski
- The Dover school board got stuck with a bill for $1 million
