I don't expect the IDiots to agree with me. I don't expect them to be happy about what I say. But I do expect them to tell the truth, or at least make the attempt.
Over at Evolution News & Views David Klinghoffer posted the following under: At Forbes, John Farrell Joins in "Ayala'ing" of Jonathan Wells.
Thus we have several posts from University of Toronto biochemist Larry Moran, criticizing Myth while being totally open about not having read it first. Moran wrote no fewer than four posts on the book in this fashion, claiming as an excuse that Myth would not be published in Canada until May 31. (In fact, the book was available for purchase from Amazon since early May.)The four postings are:
- Junk & Jonathan: Part 1—Getting the History Correct—a posting in which I addressed an interview of Jonathan Wells conducted by Denise O'Leary.
- Junk & Jonathan: Part 2— What Did Biologists Really Say About Junk DNA?—a posting in which I addressed an interview of Jonathan Wells conducted by Denise O'Leary.
- Junk & Jonathan: Part 3—The Preface—a discussion of the preface that was posted online.
- See the IDiots Gloat over Jonathan Wells—a blog posting about what David Klinghoffer had to say about me and the book.
My order was placed weeks ago on amazon.ca. Their website said that the book would not be released until May 31. Fortunately amazon.ca was able to ship it to me last week and I was happy to get it.
Now that I've read the book it will be interesting to see if David Klinghoffer has any comments about my review.
