You’ve hurt little Billy Dembski’s feelings! You keep promoting negative reviews of his book!
The Design of Life has 13 five-star reviews and 4 one-star reviews. None of the one-star reviews give evidence of the reviewer having read the book. Yet the three reviews placed front and center by Amazon are the one-star reviews and none of the five-star reviews appear there. That’s because the Darwinists keep voting up the negative reviews and voting down the positive reviews. Please go to the link right now, look at the reviews, and vote on them (toward the bottom of a review are “yes” and “no” buttons for whether a review was helpful).
Now Denyse O’Leary is urging all of her minions (“Fly, my pretties, fly!”) to rush over to Amazon and correct this deplorable situation. Why?
Like intelligent design? Hate it? No matter. This is a blow for civilization.
Gosh. I like civilization. Civilization is important. I scurried right over and voted the stupid reviews down and the smart ones up. I hope you do, too.
It is civilization’s only hope; our culture hangs by a thread on our ability to make thin-skinned Billy Dembski cry.
Uh-oh. The dembskyites noticed that all of their reviews were getting panned and that a host of new negative reviews have shown up. After Dembski had the gall to exhort his fellow creationists to get over there and pack the voting, after O’Leary begged them to help save civilization by skewing the Amazon reviews, they discover that their own ploy has rebounded against them and we get this amazing example of irony from the UncommonDescent commenters:
My suggestion is that we leave Amazon alone and let these guys freely post all the evidence any intelligent person needs to decide whether that line has been crossed. I’ve always found it deeply asinine and comical that such as Kwok consider the Amazon reviews to be so important. I don’t have any deep interest in joining them in any of their nursery school games. Victorious at Amazon? Only a loser would care.
Such deep, self-referential irony that my irony meter did not explode — it had an orgasm instead. Now it’s lying there snoring and absolutely useless.
That didn’t take long — I knew a poke at his ego would get poor tissue-thin-skinned Dembski fuming.
THE DESIGN OF LIFE is being shamelessly manipulated by the Darwinists at Amazon. Not only are they posting negative reviews that give no indication that the reviewers have read the book but they are also voting up their negative reviews so that these are the first to be seen by potential buyers.
Wait a minute…Dembski himself shamelessly urges his acolytes to rush off and manipulate the reviews because he doesn’t like the one-star reviews his book is getting, and now he shamelessly protests because we called attention to his shameless manipulation? My poor exhausted irony meter is stirring again.
Although I do think it’s pretty funny that the IDists can intentionally try to flog the vote, and all it takes is a casual mention of their games here to launch a juggernaut that easily overwhelms their efforts.
Is civilization safe yet?
