That shows, like nothing else, how the design debate is taking off. The previously faceless functionaries at the Seattle-based Discovery Institute get to be villains for the public at large, not just for threatened Darwinists, in a new anti-DI novel, The Book of God and Physics :
The Jesuits aren’t the villains in this clash between God and physics. Joven’s target is the real-life Discovery Institute, an American think-tank that promotes the theory of intelligent design. (Ross King, “Intelligent, By Design,” June 9, 2009)
I wonder when the film is coming out. Pass the cheese popcorn.
PS: I have met the Discos. They are actually nice people just doin’ a job, taking out the Darwin trash that the Darwinists can’t take out themselves – on account of their theory having degenerated into a popular cult.
Also just up at the Post-Darwinist:
Darwinism and pop culture: So now it’s Darwin poems
Darwinism and popular culture: Birds are not really feathered dinosaurs after all?
Darwinism and pop culture: Darwin was an advocate of Social Darwinism
Darwinism and academic culture: Trashing both the Earth Mother and the Evolving God
Intellectual freedom in Canada: Can’t be defamed means can’t be believed
