I couldn't find another thread for Dembski and I guess this shouldn't go to uncommonlydense:
Save your copy of his latest lecture

"[...] the type of information we find in living systems is beyond the creative means of purely material processes [...] Who or what is such an ultimate source of information? [...] from a theistic perspective, such an information source would presumably have to be God."

The latest quotation in the "Status of the Design Inference" section is from 2007. So, basically nothing has happened over the last 5 years. And that's a complaint about the tone on the blurb of a book.

That sums it up pretty well, I think.

Seems that old Dembski has moved to Iowa, at least the house that registered his GoDaddy site is in Pella, Iowa.  Also, he lists his employment as "part-time" with a Bible college in North Carolina that has five resident "faculty."

Quite a fall from his days as a hot shot at the University of Chicago.  He'll be drinking Woolite out of a brown paper bag next.

Too bad Dembski insisted on really, really trying to prove things that are not true.  That is a rather difficult road to travel for a mathematician.  Dembski coulda been somebody, coulda been a contender!

I finally noticed a 2009 review of 2004's "Why Intelligent Design Fails" by CMI's Lita Cosner that actually attempts to address the chapter by Jeff Shallit and me. That was about Dembski's CSI. I've posted a response on my blog.

Cosner is merely another of the folks who apparently didn't get it. She seems not quite as arrogant as some others, but she is still just as wildly wrong.

A lovely passage from Wesley's link:
 
Quote
…Dembski remains inconsistent in assigning probabilities, whether one calls the system Dembski critiqued “formal”, “informal”, or “stunning in a mauve chiffon dress”.

I think it's a pity that Wesley doesn't give his sense of humor more opportunities to shine like this.

If he has two members there would be one for each hand.

We should all be so lucky!

I read once about a man born with five members.
