Oh, Geeze Louise, this is just too ripe!

On Amazon, Dembski's book is described as a "turd sandwich."

But, what's even BETTER is that Amazon has this pop up that says, and I quote,

"Other books that should be considered a turd sandwich:"  Exploring Evolution by M. Behe!

Oh, I wet myself!  Seriously, I need a change of underwear.

Yea, Amazon!

Does O'Leary not know what 'Breathtaking Inanity' means?
I don't think its someone posing as her...the rest of her profile seems legit.

Help others find this product - tag it for Amazon search
Denyse O'Leary suggested this product show on searches for "breathtaking inanity". What do you suggest?

This is the best thread evah!

 "Uh, nothing dear."
 "Are you on the computer?"
 "No, I...uh...watching some TV here..."
 *sneaks off to basement to dry eyes*

The "just working the bag, boss" comment was too perfect. Put me right over the top.

Bloody wonderful movie by the way. As hard to watch as Raging Bull. But wonderful.

I'm glad the movie got into your head, though I can't honestly explain why. But those are my favorite kind of movies: the ones that get into your head. I hope it was a good birthday.

John Kwok says:
As for someone who is indeed a genuine liar, thief and con artist extraordinaire, I must nominate my "pal" Bill Dembski; an assessment which many would agree with, including not only Abbie Smith, but also my friend Ken Miller, noted Brown University cell biologist and Jerry Coyne, eminent University of Chicago evolutionary geneticist (whom I had the pleasure of meeting here in New York City at the Rockefeller University evolution symposium on May 1st.). Why?

Here's why:

1) Bill committed the legal equivalent of grand theft larceny against the Dover (PA) school board, by charging them $20,000 for "services rendered" as a potential defense witness, then declining to serve as such when he could not have his private attorney represent him during the 2005 Kitzmiller vs. Dover Area School District trial.

2) Bill had a clip of someone farting associated with his online essay critical of Judge John E. Jones after Jones' historic ruling at the end of the 2005 Kitzmiller vs. Dover trial.

3)Bill contacted the U. S. Department of Homeland Security two years ago, requesting that they investigate eminent University of Texas ecologist Eric Pianka as a "potential bioterrorist".

4) Bill orchestrated a "death threat" campaign against eminent University of Texas ecologist Eric Pianka and the Texas Academy of Sciences.

5) Almost exactly one year ago, Bill, along with his fellow intellectually-challenged Uncommon Dissent pals (including Mike Behe) held an online "roasting" of Johns Hopkins biochemist David Levin, simply because Levin had spotted some errors in Behe's "research".

6) Bill made a rather crude, quite despicable, comparison of notable University of Chicago evolutionary geneticist Jerry Coyne with Herman Munster at Uncommon Dissent last year (Jerry thought that Bill's act was truly a very "low blow".)

7) Bill followed up this bizarre display of infantile behavior with another Uncommon Dissent comparison of distinguished University of California, Berkeley paleobiologist Kevin Padian with Archie Bunker, "rhetorically" asking whether Padian was the "Archie Bunker of evolutionary biology".

8) Bill has admitted at Uncommon Dissent - with ample malicious intent - that he stole a Harvard University cell animation video made by the Connecticut-based video production company XVIVO (This has been noted by others, including Abbie Smith, and David Bolinsky, XVIVO's president, elsewhere online.).

9) Last December, Bill tried to exercise a crude form of censorship against yours truly by asking Amazon.com to delete my harsh, but accurate, review of Bill's latest published example of mendacious intellectual pornography, otherwise known as "The Design of Life" (which I did read, but won't admit how I obtained a copy). He also organized an online smear campaign against me, which IDiot William Wallace has noted in his latest post at Abbie Smith's blog (www.scienceblogs.com/erv).

10) In early May, at Uncommon Dissent, Bill had the gall to whine and to moan about "rich Darwinists" like Charles Darwin, Richard Dawkins, Francisco Ayala and Ken Miller for "making money" off of evolution. He also made the inane observation that we ought to support Intelligent Design since it is a "middle class" idea, whereas evolution is an "upper class" idea. Bill also made the absurd claim that he is a member of the middle class, when the real truth is that he is a graduate of a prestigious Catholic boarding school (Portsmouth Abbey), and had, growing up, a childhood that was far more "upper class" than either mine or Ken Miller's.

So much for honest, decent, "Christian" behavior from devout "Christian" Bill Dembski, right? These aren't the acts of someone who truly abides by Christ's teachings, but rather, Lucifer's.

Respectfully yours,

John Kwok

He forgot:
Posting a list of (Baylor?) Academics home phone numbers when he had his staff cafeteria rights revoked.

Welching on a bottle of single malt scotch bet.

Saying he has two PhD's when one is just a Pastor's license.

Admits ID is propaganda and not worth peer review by his actions and deeds.

Admits ID can only be taught as science by political subversion and not able to stand scientific peer review by his actions and deeds.

Admits ID earns him cash (thank you very much)regardless of its veracity. The true mark of conman if ever there was one. He might as well be selling magic healing crystals, all purchases final don't come back if it doesn't work sucker.
