The Discovery Institute is once again promoting the latest book by Michael Denton, a Discovery Institute “Senior Fellow.” The first time we wrote about it was An Amazing New Discoveroid Book, where we said:
Here’s the book’s Amazon listing. The price is only $14.95 in paperback, and for that you get 166 pages. It’s published by the Discovery Institute — which means it’s essentially a vanity press book.
Today the Discoveroids are promoting it again. They just posted Michael Denton Explore the Miracle of Air and Sun. It’s very brief and it has no author’s by-line. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
A classic episode of ID the Future [Ooooooooooooh! A Discoveroid podcast!] shines a light on Discovery Institute biochemist Michael Denton’s book, Children of Light: The Astonishing Properties of Sunlight that Make Us Possible. Denton explores the properties of sun and air. Download the podcast or listen to it here [link omitted].
Sounds like a great podcast! Then they say:
In Children of Light, Denton shows how sun and air are crucial parts of the larger story of our fine-tuned place in the cosmos.
Wowie — life on Earth needs sunlight and air — and we’ve got ’em! That didn’t happen by accident! It’s all because of the intelligent designer — blessed be he! And that’s what Denton’s book says. At the end of their brief post, the Discoveroids tell us:
Or as he puts it in the book, “Whatever the cause and whatever the ultimate explanation, nature appears to be fine-tuned to an astonishing degree for beings of our biology.”
Think about it. You need air, and you’ve got it. Only a Darwinist idiot would think that’s a happy coincidence. You’re not a Darwinist idiot, are you, dear reader? Then start believing in intelligent design, and send your money to the Discoveroids.
