Author bio:
Lenny Flank, Jr first became involved in the creation/evolution controversy in 1982, when a local school district in Pennsylvania introduced plans for an "equal time" policy for evolution and creation "science".  Lenny helped organize a local coalition of teachers, students, clergy and business leaders to oppose the policy.  He is the webmaster of the Creation "Science" Debunked website (, one of the most extensive evolution/creation resources on the Web, and the owner of the DebunkCreation email list, the largest evolution/creation list at Yahoogroups.  During the Pennsylvania "intelligent design" trial in 2005, the DebunkCreation group, with members from the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia, organized a donation of 23 science books to the Dover High School Library, to, as they put it, "increase knowledge and decrease ignorance".  Lenny is also a respected contributor/commenter at the Talk.Origins newsgroup and the Panda's Thumb blog.

I have to point out this book with a chapter by me:

Scientists Confront Intelligent Design and Creationism
edited by Laurie R. Godfrey and Andrew J. Petto, published by W.W. Norton.

This is the follow-up volume to the classic Scientists Confront Creationism, which was one of the first books I read on the evolution/creation controversy. I feel honored to have been able to make a contribution to the new volume.

Update: I noticed that the Amazon page says that 78% of buyers buy the book after viewing the page. Wow.

You are a confused uneducated troll who hasn't had a new or intelligent thing to say since I've seen you in your various iterations on the blogs you infest. You continually display your willful ignorance and blind obedience to faith over evidence or reason.

Exactly so.
