The same publisher that brought you DARWIN’S BLACK BOX and THE EDGE OF EVOLUTION (i.e., The Free Press) is paying Richard Dawkins $3.5million for his next book, to be titled ONLY A THEORY? I’m told, however, that other titles are still in the running, including
MERELY A HYPOTHESIS
MERE DARWINISM (this and the last to attract fans of C. S. Lewis)
THE NADIR OF SCIENCE
DARWIN’S DEAD IDEA
EVOLUTION: THE ILLUSION OF POSSIBILITY
EVOLUTION: THE SENESCENT YEARS
$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.
