The Blurb of Death

The critical reception for intelligent design guru Michael Behe's new book, The Edge of Evolution, has been so uniformly dismal that the boys at Discovery have been reduced to hyping three posts by Denyse "Buy My Book" O'Leary.

Under the breathless title "Behe's Edge of Evolution Continues to Attract Attention," Discovery's monthly e-mail newsletter, Nota Bene, boasts O'Leary "actually has three insightful posts related to Behe, and of course Behe's constributions (sic) to the overall debate over Darwinism."

Actually, the attention lavished on Behe by O'Leary is a clear demonstration that the excitement generated by this new "turning point in the evolution vs. intelligent design controversy," which Behe himself all too modestly compares to the discoveries of Newton and Copernicus, is, well, DOA.
