The Discovery Institute has been blogging about Stephen Meyer’s new book for months — actually for years — since September of 2018, long before it was published. Way back then we wrote Discoveroid Stephen Meyer’s New Book.
We don’t know how many times they’ve posted about the thing since then, but it’s gotta be several dozen. Our most recent post about it was A Podcast That Will Change the World.
Well, today the Discoveroids are at it again. They just posted this at their creationist blog: Great News — Stephen Meyer’s Return of the God Hypothesis Is a Bestseller! [Ooooooooooooh! A bestseller!] Like so many of the other posts about the book, this one was written by Klinghoffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Congratulations to our colleague Stephen Meyer! His new book, Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries That Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe [Amazon link], is not only an important new work, making the case for a personal God from the scientific evidence of cosmology, physics, and biology [Amazing!], and opening a fresh frontier for intelligent design. It’s also a bestseller [Gasp!], hitting both the USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists!
Can you believe it? They say Meyer’s book literally proves the existence of Yahweh! Isn’t Discoveroid science amazing? And in case you’re new around here, we’ll give you some background information about Stephen Meyer. Regular readers can skip this:
His Discoveroid job description has changed over the years, but as their bio page indicates, he’s one of their senior fellows and currently the Program Director of their Center for Science and Culture — that’s their creationism shop. It should not be forgotten that Meyer was a central figure in the infamous Sternberg peer review controversy. According to the Discoveroids’ 2016 Tax Return, Meyer’s salary was $250K.
Okay, let’s get back to Klinghoffer’s post. There’s not much more to it, but here it is:
That means that Dr. Meyer’s message is reaching not just the scientists (see the list of scientific endorsers here, including Nobel Prize-winning physicist Brian Josephson) [Links omitted!] but the greater reading public. This is awesome news.
Yeah, it’s awesome. Well — have you bought the thing yet? We won’t, because it would clash with our faith in the Cosmic Aardvark, but if you’re looking for something else, maybe the Discoveroid deity is just what you want. Go for it!
