Another ID Anniversary

Earlier this month we celebrated Paul Nelson Day. Today is yet another ID-related (and as it happens, also Paul Nelson related) anniversary. Four years ago, I posted a piece (reprinted a year and a half later here) on Nelson's forthcoming monograph on common descent. By now, it has been "forthcoming" for eleven years. At the time of my original post, Nelson claimed that he was "carefully doing a good job with a rich and difficult topic" but also noted that he and Dembski "have been working on a shorter article, with some of the monograph's main points, which we plan to submit to the best peer-reviewed biology journal we can find."

Guess what?

LOL. Oh the hilarity! They're editing, and re-editing, and re-editing...

It's so late because they're very carefully and methodically going through it and replacing "creationists" with "cdesign proponentsists".

The traditional gift is steel, the traditional flower is a morning glory, and the traditional gemstone is turquoise. So you can ask for a bouquet of steel morning glories inlaid with turquoise. They're working on them...
