Bill Dembski and Jonathan Wells have teamed up to write a new book on Intelligent Design Creationism. By all accounts, it is no better than any of the other books that these authors have written. This shouldn't be a surprise. Putting two IDiots together does not cancel out.
Dembski was upset that the reviews on Amazon weren't as glowing as he would have liked. Even worse, the negative reviews were rising to the top of the list as more and more people ranked them as helpful. What to Do?
Well, if you're an IDiot, the first thing you think of is a way to fudge the results. You start by posting a message on the IDiot blogs asking all your follower to rush on over to Amazon and vote for the favorable reviews. Yep, that'll work all right. Except for one teeny, tiny problem.
Rational people found out about it and since there are more of them than IDiots, you can guess what happened. Now what does an IDiot do? That's right, complain about "shameless manipulation"! Here's the current position on deliberately trying to manipulate the results on Amazon.
THE DESIGN OF LIFE is being shamelessly manipulated by the Darwinists at Amazon. Not only are they posting negative reviews that give no indication that the reviewers have read the book but they are also voting up their negative reviews so that these are the first to be seen by potential buyers.PZ Myers has the complete story [You Bastards!]. He points out the obvious ....
Wait a minute…Dembski himself shamelessly urges his acolytes to rush off and manipulate the reviews because he doesn't like the one-star reviews his book is getting, and now he shamelessly protests because we called attention to his shameless manipulation? My poor exhausted irony meter is stirring again.Don't forget why we call them IDiots.
