Tell the World!

I already told my ... um ... select group of readers about the detailed review being done by Smilodon's Retreat of Stephen Meyer's Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design. I worried that the poor guy might exhaust himself with his self-imposed Sisyphean task. It appears my (very) modest encouragement has had a heartening effect:
I've been piddling on this for a while. Honestly, I find the whole exercise extremely annoying. But I promised I would do this and I've been inspired to continue. Thanks to the Thoughts in a Haystack blog. I'm something of a narcissist (apparently) and if someone doesn't tell me how awesome I am every few weeks, I go and get depressed.
C'mon folks! Those with blogs, post a few kind words and a link. Those without, when you see something about Meyer's book, leave a comment with a link. If you have some other way of letting people know, use it.

If Smilodon is willing to do the dirty work of slogging through Meyer's horsehockey, the least all the rest of us can do is tell the world.

I admire Smilodon's determination. I find it hard to read creationist guff because it tends to make me incandescent with rage with the melange of stupidity, ignorance, arrogance and dishonesty that is creationist 'thought', so I appreciate the efforts of others.

I find it hard to read creationist guff ...

I know what you mean. Sometimes I find a juicy bit of stupidity and start to blog about it but a dull pain starts up behind my eyes at the very thought of wasting my time and effort on it.
