Oh dear, the Twins have got their knickers in a twist again about my review in Science of their book. As is their wont, they mostly argue from authority, dragging in as many like-minded people as they can find.
I’m not impressed, and absolutely stand by my review and its conclusion that Unscientific America is “shallow and unreflective.” I don’t intend to argue further about this, as I’ve become convinced that in their desperation to show that their book is really good despite widespread criticism of it, the Twins seem to have become intellectually dishonest. One of many examples is their citing Robert Wright’s beef against my New Republic review of his book The Evolution of God, which they do to prove that I habitually misrepresent the books I review. Yet they fail to mention my long response to Wright, showing that his beef turns out to be thin gruel. (See a shorter give-and-take here.) So it goes.
Anyway, Jason Rosenhouse dismantles the Twins’ Big Whine over at EvolutionBlog.
