The Christian Creationist Discovery Institute and their "unyielding commitment to dishonesty and its creepy mission to undermine science itself."

I wrote these comments at The mere presence of this book is interrupting my Darwin worship:

"I know the outline of a few of his basic arguments, but I’m actually quite interested to see what he puts forward as positive evidence of design, especially since the book is supposed to be the epitome of the ID movement’s output so far."

Translation:

"I know the outline of a few of his basic FANTASIES, but I’m actually quite interested to see what he puts forward as positive evidence of MAGIC, especially since the book is supposed to be the epitome of the MAGIC movement’s output so far."

A summary of their "evidence": if the compulsive liars of the Christian Creationist Discovery Institute are too stupid to understand something then it was created out of nothing by a magic-wand-waving god fairy.

As if their dishonesty and total ignorance of science was evidence for anything except the idea these Liars-For-The-Christian-Death-Cult are traitors who want to destroy America's science education to defend their dead Jeebus.

The truth about the pathological liars of the Christian Creationist Discovery Institute: 23 posts I wrote about the dishonest creationists of the Christian Discovery Institute

Here's an example. This shows educated Christians have nothing but contempt for the Discovery Institute liars. This is from a letter to Stephen C. Meyer:

Your Discovery Institute is a horrific mistake, an epic intellectual tragedy that is degrading the minds of those who consume its products and bringing dishonor to you and to the church. It is for good reason that Casey Luskin is held in such extreme contempt by your movement's critics, and there's something truly sick about the pattern of attacks that your operatives launched in the weeks after the Biola event. It's clear that you have a cadre of attack dogs that do this work for you, and some of them seem unconstrained by standards of integrity. I can't state this strongly enough: the Discovery Institute is a dangerous cancer on the Christian intellect, both because of its unyielding commitment to dishonesty and because of its creepy mission to undermine science itself. I'd like to see you do better, but I have no such hope for your institute. It needs to be destroyed, and I will do what I can to bring that about.
