William Dembski and Barbarella!
The Dembski story of a link that's hawt ID - The simple story that shows up this dumb theory?
Where do I start?
To top it off - as if anything could be more funny than William Dembski linking to a man who uses intelligent design in a, ahem, highly creative fashion - I just saw "Barbarella," the Ballet of the Dolls version - frigging awesome! - and John A. Davison just told me that he luvs me. [Update: we're off again. Whew. Just in time before I went to bed and cheated on him with my own boyfiend. *Wink!*] It's just a summer of love!
Oh, my stars. Dembski links to a site by a man who also claims to use intelligent design for Pleasurianism - "a mixture of intelligent design and Hefnerian Playboy philosophy":
ID Pleasurian philosophy is a non-religious amalgam of ID science and Hefnerian Playboy philosophy. It serves as a strategically unified and archetypal counter proposal to orthodox ascetic religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Islam. It is also somewhat resonant with Wiccan and “mother nature”- based pagan cults (in the west) and Tantric Buddhism (in the east). Pleasurian-ism is an earthy, sensuous and physically celebratory form of “monistic idealism” or infocognitive monism.” Pleasurian science is naturally driven by the "pleasure of finding things out."
COWABUNGA! Count me in! Count me iiiiiiinnnnnnn! I can get behind that (or, er, any other place).
I believe in intelligent design! Hallelujah!
I'm a believer!
(Somewhere, in all of this, starting with the rise of intelligent design, through the Dover trial, Dembski's fart animation, and this, there is a sci fi space opera musical just waiting to be written. Complete with bacterial flagella costumes and a blood-clotting cascade dance sequence.)
(Starring a snarky belly dancer and surrealist poet enthusiast-librarian-pirate-secret agent-scribe. I'll get right on it, Mr. President!)
Shimmies to Duae Quartuncia, Stranger Fruit, Red State Rabble, After the Bar Closes, Afarensis, Clever Beyond Measure, Paralepsis, Bill Brookfield and Penny (did you get lucky, Bill?), William Dembski (feeling lucky, Bill?), and to Jane Fonda, Ballet of the Dolls, the stars, the bars, the barmen, and to the whole lovin' galaxy out there!
UPDATED: Remember all that guff about "It was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve in the Garden, blah, blah"? Well, according to Ken Ham's creationist sideshow it was Adam and Steve!
Between this, William Dembski becoming an unwitting porn star, and Sal Cordova thinking that he's Han Solo, I might not stop laughing for days! (And I mean "laugh" in the Inuit way, as in, "together in bed." *Wink!* )
Shimmies to Ed at Dispatches. Rhymes with...
