It’s been a tough year for Richard Dawkins. First, his autobiography (Part 1) was a flop. Then his documentary was a flop. Then, there were all the times he made of fool of himself with his radical tweets. Then, he got caught trying to sell himself and had to go back and quietly change his website. Feminists successfully tagged him as a sexist and more and more atheists just want him to go away.
With that context in mind, take a look at Jerry Coyne’s book promo listed over at Amazon:
Extending the bestselling works of Richard Dawson, Daniel Dennett, and Christopher Hitchens, he demolishes the claims of religion to provide verifiable “truth” by subjecting those claims to the same tests we use to establish truth in science.
You know it’s bad when a supposed ally promotes his book by likening Dawkins to a famous game show host! And keep in mind that promo has been up for weeks on amazon, indicating Coyne has felt no pressing need to get this corrected.
Makes ya wonder – is Coyne trying to exploit Dawkins’ troubles to position himself as the new Leader of the Gnus? lol
Okay, on a more serious note, we’ll have to take a look at Coyne’s latest attempt to cash in on the New Atheist Movement.
