The whole fiasco revolving around my reshelving anti-evolution books in a bookstore was discussed on the podcast Skeptically Speaking (listen here/mp3 here), and considers whether my sort of activism is effective. You can hear it toward the beginning of the program before they move on to the Independent Investigations Group.

  1. It would be nice to see bookstores and libraries pick up on this, instead of just bloggers. They need to pay more attention to how they classify their books. Finding I.D/creationist mumbo-jumbo on a science shelf is not only wrong, it gives their views a credibility they do not deserve.

  2. I like how the comments on the February 12 Uncommon Descent article about the matter are closed. What, do they want to spoil my Evil Darwinian Fun ™? Why yes, they do.😛

  3. It is not possible to reasonably answer whether any political action is effective. The main question I think is whether the person(s) has some passion for doing it. That passion will communicate and who knows what. “I shot an arrow into the air, Where it landed, etc.”
