There is good news for those who wanted a copy of Why Intelligent Design Fails, but were protective of their wallets and pocketbooks. Rutgers University Press now has the popular Matt Young and Taner Edis anthology available in paperback, at a sale price of $19.96. Yes, there is sales tax to be added, but there’s free shipping for web orders. I paid more for dinner at the AAAS conference hotel restaurant.

Be sure to check out Taner Edis’s page on WIDF, which links to reviews.

Speaking of the cost for Intelligent Design’s failing, today’s York Daily Record reports that the Kitzmiller v. Dover losers have agreed to pay $1M in court costs. The school board’s solicitor (who was ignored by Board members eager to bring Creationism into Class) said the original fee was $2.5M before negotiations.

Speaking of cost again, I hear you could pocket a cool $1000 by costing your school board $1M or more.

William Dembski, one of the leading supporters of intelligent design, is offering a $1,000 award to the first teacher in Wisconsin who would challenge the policy by teaching intelligent design as science within a public school curriculum.

Pffft. He should offer them a world-class defense instead. For free.

Rutgers University Press also published two of my books, The Riddled Chain and Sparing Nature. I recommend all their books highly … and especially mine!
