The Meyer Fiasco, IV
I suspect that most creationist organizations will simply ignore the highly dubious way in which Meyer's article managed to get into print, and will continue to produce essays like this one from Objective: Christian Ministries. No simple excerpt could do justice to this Zell Miller-esque rant, so I think I'll just reproduce the whole thing:
Evolutionists Forced By Preponderance Of Evidence To Finally Publish Intelligent Design Paper In Peer-Reviewed Journal
(8/25/2004) The origin of biological information and the higher taxonomic categories by Stephen C. Meyer of the Discovery Institute, an important paper in the history of Science on par with Watson and Crick's paper on the structure of DNA which demolishes all the false icons of Evolutionism and breaks open Darwin's black box by showing that only the Intelligent Design of the Lord can account for the origins of the bauplans of the higher taxa, has been published in the highly-respected journal Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington (Vol. 117, No. 2, pp. 213-239). After years of stonewalling and refusal to acknowledge that the theory of Evolutionism is in crisis, Evolutionists have admitted defeat and allowed their tightly controlled peer-review journal to finally publish the truth. The PBSW's editor, Richard von Sternberg, who is also on the editorial board of the Baraminology Study Group, has long been forced by the hegemony of Evolutionist dogma to keep papers supporting ID out of the journal. But because of Dr. Meyer's devastating critique of Evolutionistic teachings on the Punctuated Equilibrium, and his discovery of high levels of Complex Specified Information (CSI) in animal kinds from the Cambrian Explosion, the forces of Evolutionism had no viable excuse not to allow von Sternberg to publish Dr. Meyer's paper. Now that the flood gates are open, hundreds of other papers supporting Intelligent Design will soon be appearing in all relevant journals, thus marking the end of Evolutionism's strangle hold on academia. We are truly living in wondrous times.
[UPDATE 9-4-2004] Respected news organizations the Washington Times and World Net Daily are both reporting that Evolutionists -- acting through Darwinian activists at a notorious anti-Creation message board called “The Panda's Thumb” -- have gone on the offensive and are responding to this fatal blow to Evolutionist Philosophy with "hysteria, name-calling and personal attack." In particular, Evolutionist thought police are accusing PBSW's editor Sternberg of “being a Creationist” (he is, as mentioned above, on the editorial board of the BSG as well as a signatory to the Discovery Institute's “A Scientific Dissent on Darwinism”) and suggesting that the paper “received some editorial shepherding through the peer review process.” Poppycock! As Sternberg notes, the paper was found by three peer reviewers to be “meritorious, warranting publication.”
It's becoming clear that Darwinists just can't accept that the game's up. Listen guys... you had a good run. You got a large number of people to actually believe they are monkey's uncles while you mingled with Hollywood elite on the set of Jurassic Park and lived it up on tenure at fancy colleges. But it's over. Now just peacefully turn in your lab coats and go join the phrenologists stuffing envelopes from their homes.
By the way, the full paper is now on-line at Discovery Institute: The origin of biological information and the higher taxonomic categories by Stephen C. Meyer. We advise you to make a backup copy before desperate Darwinian hackers try and take the site down.
