You’ve heard about the new book the Discovery Institute is promoting. We wrote about it a couple of months ago in Klinghoffer Gushes over Book by Douglas Axe.
The Discoveroids’ promotion continues in a new post at their creationist blog: Axe and Undeniable — What the Scientists Are Saying. [*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] This should be good!
It was written by David Klinghoffer, a Discoveroid “senior fellow” (i.e., flaming, full-blown creationist), who eagerly functions as their journalistic slasher and poo flinger. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed was published yesterday by HarperOne. What do scientists say about this remarkable new book by Biologic Institute protein chemist Douglas Axe, demonstrating the scientific validity of the “design intuition”? The comments are coming in and they are excellent.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] The comments from scientists are excellent! Who are the scientists making such comments? Klinghoffer gives us comments from three of them, and here they are:
From biochemist Michael J. Behe …
We’ll omit Behe’s comment. You already know that Michael Behe is a Discovery Institute Senior Fellow. He’s also a professor of biochemistry at Lehigh University. His colleagues at Lehigh are so impressed by his brilliance that they publicly disassociated themselves from him by issuing this statement: Department Position on Evolution and “Intelligent Design”.
Let’s read on to learn who made the next “excellent” comment about Axe’s book. Klinghoffer says:
From Marcos Eberlin, Professor of Chemistry at Brazil’s University of Campinas, and a member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences: …
We’ll skip his comment too. Why? Because after Googling around on his name, we learned that he’s the author of this book: Life and the Universe by Intelligent Design. Klinghoffer continues:
From J. Scott Turner, Professor of Biology, State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry: …
We’re going to skip that too. Why? Because that guy has previously been praised — by Casey! — at the Discoveroids’ blog — see Pro-Darwin Biology Professor Laments Academia’s “Intolerance” and Supports Teaching Intelligent Design. Casey wrote:
Turner sees the Kitzmiller v. Dover case as the dangerous real-world expression of the intolerance common in the academy: “My blood chills … when these essentially harmless hypocrisies are joined with the all-American tradition of litigiousness, for it is in the hand of courts and lawyers that real damage to cherished academic ideas is likely to be done.”
Those are the only scientists Klinghoffer mentions. Very impressive! He ends his post with this:
Much more to come. Congratulations, Dr. Axe! Undeniable offers every thoughtful reader the tools to confirm the reality of intelligent design. Get it now!
Yeah — get it now. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
