I just got my copy of Flock of Dodos: Behind Modern Creationism & Intelligent Design by Barrett Brown and Jon P. Alston. I haven't gotten far into it but I like it already!
Tired of the Discovery Institute's Weltanschauung of whine? The book has a take-no-prisoners, there's-no-ass-like-a-wise-ass attitude that I, you may have noticed, aspire to. So the next time an incredible weasel like Casey Luskin starts complaining about ID being called "creationism in a cheap tuxedo" or some such, whip this out:
Politeness is wasted on the dishonest, who will always take advantage of any well-intended concession, and the leaders of the so-called "Intelligent Design" movement, as we shall see, are so incredibly dishonest that they could cause a veteran heroin addict to blush -- not out of any moral objection on the part of the addict, but rather out of embarrassment that anyone could be so darned bad at lying.
