my network of spies have alerted me to the possibility of Dembski stepping down as liar in chief for Jebus.

With his departure will come an overhaul of UD, and currently we have three editors pitching their new vibe:

1) DaveScot's Unscientific American

Dave will expand UD into more general science bashing / denying:

How would you falsify a moon landing?
Roswell - message from the designer?
Perpetual motion machines: what secrets are "Big Oil" hiding?
Make your own tinfoil hat guide.

Most folks would be scared that "the man" / the Illuminati / the NSA would "close them down", but Dave's got 2 days of combat training, 2 years of cheesypoofs and an Immobile Floating Command Center.

2) Sal Cordova's Design in Genesis

This will basically be Answers in Genesis with a 'find and replace' for "God / Designer". Sal will host educational films by Hanna Barbera and stumble around scientific issues he doesn't understand without the help of 'experts' before he comes to the conclusion: "Wow, just like the bible says".

3) Denyse O'Leary: Post Dembski : The Myndless twat (PS buy my book!)

Using her unique narrative style that makes you want to take a spork to your eyeballs, Denyse will talk about herself in the third person. Each week her guest speaker, Strawman, will argue the consequences of Darwinism and Evilution. When not hawking her shoite books or 17 other blogs, she will argue against naturalism. But does she *really* think that, or is she being manipulated by a disembodied telic entity using undetectable zero wavelength radiation?

cast you votes now for UD:AD!

That's my Dembster: out of the pool the minute he spies a vacant beach chair. Myself, I'm a big believer in stepping aside and letting the next generation take over.

GilDodgen could write the Complexity Sonata.

TroutMAC certainly deserves to be the big fish in an only slightly larger pond.

WinglesS could spread his. Um. Wings, I meant.

And then there's merry Joseph. And Jehu. "J- who?"

What about Richard's new Girlfreind FTK?

She's been "testing us out" recently, to see if we are a "good fit". á áEven though this has been outside the bonds of Holy Matrimony, and it's like she's cheating on DaveScot, it's good training for her and a chance to ahem, "show us what she's got".

She has also showed a saucy little leaning and longing for the old "girl-on-girl" thing with Kristine, so she's got that going for her...

Although her "earlier body of work" has been totally trashed and discredited by Albatrosity2, she is trying to show the Demsker and the DI/ID puppet-masters that She Alone has the Balls to Take On the Atheistic Godless Hordes. á(Hey! áThat's us!)

Bottome line: áFTK has DaveTard wrapped around her finger, Sal doesn't even know what a finger can be used for, and TroutMac, Jay-Who et al just don't have the smarts to handle it. á

My money's on FTK in this race.

Nah. The smart money is on Sal "I love the lies, me" Cordova.

After all he's an IDEAs man.

Do you think we'll get treated to a Nixon-like "You Won't Have Dembski To Kick Around" Speech (Post)?

A sobbing, sorrowful Bill to sooth our savage breasts?

I don't doubt that they will find some willing IDiot to run UD; all of the candidates mentioned so far would be up to that task...

The real question is "What Will Dembski Do?", or WWDD, for short.

I think he probably is in line to be the next Attorney General once Gonzales hits the road. Lord knows they could use some intelligent designers in Shrub's administration.

Watching the slow, attenuated decay of UD, I'm reminded of an HL Mencken quote where he described some national political convention he was attending as possessing something like the horrible fascination of watching "a fancy dress ball among the inmates of a home for the retarded".

(I really wish I could find the actual quote. I think it might have been cited in something Hunter S Thompson wrote. If anyone out there has the citation, let me know.)

Arden:

"....the most inspiring thought I bumped into last year was the concept of JUBILEE 2000 a call to cancel third world debts going into the next millennium and to give crippled nations a chance to get up off their knees and walk again. ...Without a real commitment to do something about the dire circumstances of a third of the population of the planet, all new year's eve 99 will amount to is an up drawbridge scenario, a fancy dress ball at the castle where we all play louis 14 pissing across a moat of champagne on the poor."

Priceless.  Time to add another wing to the National Museum of Tard.

Now if only they could find some peers to review this, they'd be able to increase the number of peer-reviewed ID publications to, um, hang on while I check... 1.

UD hasn't had any "intelligent design" discussions in years.

It's all Christian apologetics, Darwinism is bad and crank de jour.

It could be that the Dembster is more concerned about getting a paycheck from his Bible College than he is about being an ID huckster.

Could it be that his new masters who control the pursestrings have offered young Bill a moment of reflection?  This is your bank account with UD (zero), and this is your bank account sans UD (salary).

I don't know who these girls are, but I want to let everyone know Kansas City is a nice place.  Please come visit us.  Sure we have AFDave, but, um, well, there's nothing to be done about that.

On a better note, those girls looked okay in sparkly dresses and ftk assures us that fundies have better sex.
