Blatant link-whoring

But for a serious reason.

ERV pointed out in the comments to my last post, that Dembski is trying to Google-bomb pro-science, though in a slightly more sophisticated way than normal.

Are you pro-science enough?
William Dembski

In my previous post, I cited a Miami Herald article that refers to “The National Center for Science Education, a pro-science watchdog group.” For the real pro-science watchdog group, check out the following links:


That’s right. I own those domain names and they all refer back here. Let me encourage all contributors to this blog to use these domain names in referring to UD when they email Darwinists."

Now, if these links are only used in e-mails, there won't be any problems, but if they are also used on the internet, it might mean that they will become prominent in Google searches. This can be avoided by linking to other sites (for example this blog, but it could also be The Panda's Thumb or NCSE) with the text pro-science.

It would be horrible if people got the impression that UD has anything to do with science.

UD = Uncommon Descent. The weblog of William Dembski and his bunch of loonies that make most intelligent design proponents look smart. Seriously. I mean, if I believed in intelligent design, I would be embarressed of the people who post at UD.

Every time Dembski or his co-bloggers posts something, the internet gets dumber.
