“Intelligible Design” and World Scientific: The End? So it seems – no it wasn’t

Update July 23: this book has been absent for a week from the WSPC web site. I am told that the matter is under consideration by WSPC management. In the circumstances, I have taken down my posts on the subject, and hope not to have to reinstate them.

Update: World Scientific asked me for a full review of the book. I have sent it to them, with a cover note saying that I hope never to have occasion to publish it. All that fine invective, never to see the light of day! But fair’s fair.

Update Sept 27; It’s back on the menu. Too puerile to require rebuttal, too insignificant to be worth publicising by protest. So I’ll leave it at that, and simply bear in mind that World Scientific’s imprimatur is now worthless.

  1. World Scientific will apparently be publishing the output from an Intelligent Design creationist meeting: Biological Information: New Perspectives http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/8818
    I think this was originally lined up for publication by Springer until its real nature was revealed. Several articles at Pandas Thumb are informative on that volume’s chequered history.
