Now Dembski is cybersquatting on reality?

William Dembski over at Uncommon Descent has a new strategy for improving the public image of intelligent design: blatantly misleading domain names.

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:

* www.pro-science.com
* www.pro-science.org
* www.pro-science.net

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.

Someone should really tell Dembski that simply repeating something over and over does not make it so. Intelligent design is not science, and those who endorse it are not pro-science. And it doesn't even stop at intelligent design: UD is a bastion for everything anti-science, including global warming denialism, HIV/AIDS denialism, even Holocaust denialism.

Maybe Dembski's just mad that intelligent-design.net was taken. Or maybe he's smarter than we give him credit for, and he's just generating demand for those domains so he can sell them to someone like the NCSE at an inflated price.
