PLOSs Evil Twin

Soon to be freely available online for our mocking pleasure, Journal of Creation.

I wonder if this means Bora has a Creationist doppelganger... **cue Twilight Zone music**

That could be fun. Lots of bloggable material, I'm sure.

So, in the true spirit of Open Access we can freely use, reuse and modify their papers in any way we want. Quote-mining anyone?

Ah, Bora is his own evil twin!

I just flicked through a book review by Walter ReMine (pdf), and at the end he gives some ID predictions, from "Message Theory":

Message Theory claims life was reasonably designed: (1) for survival, (2) to look like the
product of one designer (or group of designers acting together as one, rather than multiple independent designers), and (3) to also resist evolutionary explanations.


Mass extinctions are problematic for (1) (well, any extinctions are), and (3) seems to ignore the ingenuity of the several hundred people I'll be with at the ESEB meeting in Uppsala next week.

I'll check to see if this has been noticed over at AtBC. :-)

Note that they are at Volume 21 only because this is the journal formerly known as the Creation ex nihilo Technical Journal, or TJ. I think (but am not sure) the renaming had something to do with the Great Answers in Genesis American versus Australia Schism of 2005-2007-present. See the Lippard Blog and related discussions.

Oh, there's some funny shit in there... They've already put up a few issues. Take a look, they're written like high-school essays. No data, but lots of quotes and a few ripped-off pretty pictures. You suppose they have permission to publish those pictures?

Just read a comment about the paper by Lolle et al.(2005) ... the author that "...the Bible is true and can be trusted, even in Genesis 1–11."

Aha! More corroborative evidence for the Cretinist claim that blogs regularly 'disappear' devastating critiques of evilutionist nonsense, preventing the public from seeing its dogma exposed.

Lots of vomit-inducing fun!
