Hobgoblin of little minds
In The Chronicle of Higher Education (12/21/01) William Dembski had this to say about his publication strategy:
“I’ve just gotten kind of blase about submitting things to journals where you often wait two years to get things into print. And I find I can actually get the turnaround faster by writing a book and getting the ideas expressed there. My books sell well. I get a royalty. And the material gets read more.”
which makes the following all the more ironic. On commenting of Dawkins’ $3.5 million contract for Only A Theory? he says:
$3.5million is a lot of money. The question I have is whether Dawkins still worships exclusively in the temple of Darwin or if he now also attends services at the temple of Mammon.
You got to sense a little envy there.
