Ok, the reason you creationists cannot get published in a legit, peer-reviewed science journal is because your ideas are not scientific.

But I have something even better for you! áYou can always (and honestly) say your work is "cheer-reviewed" meaning other IDiots have read the paper or work in question and cheered you on!

So, Casey Luskin, put an icon on your IDC press release page that says "Cheer-Reviewed" and you'll look sciency.

Demsbki you can do the same.

You're welcome!

edit: I mean IDCers...

In the spirit of the historical era with which the DI is so enamoured and to which they'd love to return us, I suggest pier review:

1. áThrow the authors off a pier.
2. áThey float? áWitch! áWitch! áLight a fire!
3. áThey sink? áPull 'em out, and publish their paper along with a glowing obituary.

Rich has a logo for Cheer Reviewed, and they could easily steal insert in on all their papers, but I think John W's idea of pier reviewed also has a lot of promise to it.

I recommend Casey Luskin for the First ID Pier Review.

Comon Casey - step up to the plate!

How about Luskin for "short pier" review?

Pew-reviewed?

They can still use peer, just in another meaning, as in "I could only peer at it from a distance, because it would have made me nauseous to read in depth, but I still put it up on the web page because it comes to the conclusion that I want it to".

This could lead to a whole new paradigm of scientific review.  Glance review.  Why spend time reading entire papers when you can just glance at it and put your rubber stamp on it.

Think of the time that could be saved.  Think of all the extra research they could do.

I think we should find someone in the House of Lords who would set up a blog where they review this stuff and rip it to shreds.  Then it would be peer reviewed.

Or submitted papers could be read only for as long as it takes to empty one's bladder, and so be pee-reviewed.
