It turns out that the InTrade Prediction Market will take suggestions for new books to open. I'd like to come up with a few definite predictions that would have a chance of being accepted by InTrade. The goal: to fleece the dense. Any time some buffoon predicts Darwinism's Waterloo, you'd be able to say: "Oh yeah, well contracts for that are selling at $2.00. How many are you buying?"

(Oooo, it would have been great to be able to trade contracts on the Kitzmiller v. Dover outcome!)

If the predictions are specific enough, we might be able to get them in. What would you like to see traded?

How about using (a) the Wedge document's goals, or (b) Dembski's prediction that Darwinism would be overthrown in 10 years.  I think Kristine still has the quote somewhere.

Or just wait until the next trial comes up.

It is fun to dip into the various threads to watch cluelessness at work in the hands of the confident exponent. - Soapy Sam (so say we all)
