I found this via PT but thought it was worth it's own thread here.

Seems Dimski ID textbook for our friends at FTE, "The Design of Life" is nearer to thee (should be in print soon).  This one promises to be "fact" filled and "scientific".  Dimski is quoted "It is bullet-proof, which in part accounts for the delay in its arrival"

Holy cow man I cannot wait to read this bullet proof, steaming bowl of recycled creationist dog shit.  Let's hope he pollutes it with lots of fuzzy math.

Read all about it here.

Wow, that layer of kelvar really slowed it down.

Raising the Funds to Publish: An Update

We must raise $250,000 to publish the book-to print, publicize, and market it aggressively, especially to the young. Candidly, we really hope to raise $275,000, to give it a stronger sendoff.

We are very excited to tell you where we stand. As of today, we have received gifts totaling approximately $113,000. $50,000 of that was wired to our account on Monday. The offer of another $50,000 is giving us great momentum, having been pledged as a matching challenge. This means that if we can raise the matching $50,000 by May 31st, we can add $100,000 to the $113,000 already raised! That would bring our total to $213,000, putting the finish line very much in view.


Just wouldn't be religion Intelligent Design without somebody begging for your cash.  :p

The entire manuscript has been written and the process of aggressive editing and proofing for scholarship, scientific fact, and careful expression has been completed on all but the eighth--and final--chapter.

Translation: The book has been reviewed by 9-year-old Johnny and his dog Barfy.

Nah, they got Richard Sternberg to organize the peer review.  He's good at that sort of thing, plus he's looking for work.  :D

Reason #425 why Intelligent Design is a whole lot like religion and very little like science: it has 'textbooks' but no peer-reviewed literature.

Why don't they just get gazillionaire DavescotspringerTard to spend some of his money he got by using his 4675 IQ to be Michael Dell's personal inspiration?  I'm sure he'd be happy to donate some of the proceeds from the super-sciency work he's doing on the floating command center.

That's the one that proved to the judge in Dover that ID is just creationism, right Bill . . . . . . ?

Well, given that "intelligent design" died a horrible death in Dover, I am wondering what term they search-and-replaced it with THIS time . . . . . .

Or weren't they even THAT bright . . . . .

In October, we wrote about the intelligent design conference sponsored in Tampa by PSSI, (Physicians and Surgeons for Scientific Integrity), which was attended by nearly 4,000 at the Univ. of South Florida Sun Dome Sports Arena.

A lot of churches were missing their bus that day.

At least they weren't out on the streets making a nuisance of themselves, 4000 idiots less in public for a day ....should be more of it.

Don't want to start a thread.

The textbook will say that life was designed to evolve, just like these computers:
http://www.bitsofnews.com/content/view/5470/44/

And that regular geometric shapes are evidence of design, like this:

The researchers found that once the plate was spinning so fast that the water span out to the sides, creating a hole of air in the middle, the dry patch wasn't circular as might be expected. Instead it evolved, as the bucket's spin sped up, from an ellipse to a three-sided star, to a square, a pentagon, and, at the highest speeds investigated, a hexagon.
A Darwinian secret handshake? Those things are obviously designed. By Humans!

On April 12, Bill Dembski will speak at the Dallas Christian Leadership luncheon at SMU. (This is in the very room where our now famous symposium on Darwinism took place in 1992.) Contact us for more details if you would like to attend.
I WANT TO ATTEND! GIVE ME MORE DETAILS!

[Yelling]I MISSED TEH FAMOUS SYMPOSIUM IN 1992 AND I WANT TO BE A PART OF HISTORY!!!

:D Watch out Bill, I'm sick of looking at photographs. Maybe I'll spike the coffee to give it that special shimmy down the gullet. And then, go do that doo-doo that you do so well. *Fart*

Yeah. Lots o'ways we could jazz up their simple-posiums, folks. :p

Which came first: the shimmy, or the hip?
