Bill Dembski, creationist-at-large, has broken yet another biblical commandment:
Exodus 20:17 "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that [is] thy neighbour's."Turns out, Dembski has coveted his neighbor's ass. Or rather, he's coveted Richard Dawkins' rather large book payment:
Dawkins Cashes in on Darwin’s Upcoming Bicentennial William DembskiI don't know about you, but Willie Dembski sounds a little jealous. Good thing he's a righteous chap, and doesn't sell his pseudoscience books for cash. Nope, he's just a humble professor. Interesting he never publishes in academic journals, but focuses all his efforts on selling books. But, he would never stoop to trying to tie his books to a movie to increase sales. Indeed, he's not interested in money at all.
The same publisher that brought you DARWIN’S BLACK BOX and THE EDGE OF EVOLUTION (i.e., The Free Press) is paying Richard Dawkins $3.5million for his next book, to be titled ONLY A THEORY? I’m told, however, that other titles are still in the running, including
MERELY A HYPOTHESIS
MERE DARWINISM (this and the last to attract fans of C. S. Lewis)
THE NADIR OF SCIENCE
DARWIN’S DEAD IDEA
EVOLUTION: THE ILLUSION OF POSSIBILITY
EVOLUTION: THE SENESCENT YEARS
$3.5million is a lot of money. The question I have is whether Dawkins still worships exclusively in the temple of Darwin or if he now also attends services at the temple of Mammon.
