Coffee!! Darwinism and pop culture: Pop fiction discovers the Discovery Institute

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

  1. ” …You can safely put God to bed now
    the way you can’t your daughter anymore.
    Tuck the sheets so tight he cannot move
    and lock the bedroom door.”

    “And what if it turns out that God is everywhere (omnipresent), so you meet Him on the stairs?”

    Haha, yep. You can run….

  2. Ah, I’m sure the discos are nice and all, but lest you fergit: they promote the idea that evolution is wrong, thereby deluding people into believing that God is real — which all sane people know is the cause of all the problems in the world since time began. Therefore discos=baddies and Darwinerds=heroes. QED.

  3. I would have to disagree with your assessment of the Discovery Institute. Thanks to the Dover debacle, they are more of a liability than anything.

    Unless you don’t mind everyone thinking creationism=ID.

    Their short sightedness ruined IDs chances of every being brought into a science class.

  4. Qrewtix,
    Last I checked Dover made ID huge. Where have you been?

  5. Heh, you have to love free (almost) advertising.

  6. All attention insn’t good attention. And people keep bluring the line between ID and religion, which is exactly what its opponents want.
