Man, I just arrived in Seattle and had scarcely gotten a nap in when I woke up to find this:
SEATTLE — In his book The Republican War on Science, Chris Mooney declares war on intelligent design, calling it a “reactionary crusade” promoted by “[s]cience abusers.” Discovery Institute now responds to Mooney’s war on intelligent design (ID) by publishing a detailed report, “Whose War Is It, Anyway? Exposing Chris Mooney’s Attack on Intelligent Design,” documenting 14 major errors Mooney makes when writing about ID in his book. The report will be available online on Friday, Sept. 15.
“Why do so many people eagerly listen to a journalist with neither scientific nor legal training discuss a complex scientific and legal issue like intelligent design?” asks Casey Luskin, an attorney with a science background, working with Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture (CSC).
Uh oh, looks they are going credentialist on me….a strategy also tried by Jim Gibbons, and look where that got him. And there is apparently more to come from the DI, just in time for my debate tomorrow with Jonathan Wells.
Let no one say that I was the one trying to publicize this event…..
