O'Leary to help out with Bill Dembski's Uncommon Descent

As a kind reader has indicated in a comment appended to a previous post, Bill Dembski has asked me to moderate his Weblog, Uncommon Descent.

The Post-Darwinist, will, of course continue pretty much as it has. The main foreseeable impact is that I must learn yet another blogger software program.

Here is part of the announcement:

Uncommon Descent is about to become "The Intelligent Design Weblog of William Dembski, Denyse O'Leary, and Friends." O'Leary is a Toronto-based Canadian journalist and the author of By Design or by Chance? (Augsburg 2004), an investigation of the intelligent design controversy.

In addition to being an equal partner with me on this blog, Denyse has also agreed to moderate it.

Please note all, this development is not the reason I did not post today. I was helping a fellow Canadian journalist organize his many foreign desk columns and dispatches into an upcoming book, so just couldn't get to blogging. Blogging here resumes tomorrow.
If you like this blog, check out my book on the intelligent design controversy, By Design or by Chance?. You can read excerpts as well.

Blog policy note:Comments are permitted on this blog, but they are moderated. Fully anonymous posts and URLs posted without comment are rarely accepted. To Mr. Anonymous: I'm not psychic, so if you won't tell me who you are, I can't guess and don't care. To Mr. Nude World (URL): If you can't be bothered telling site visitors why they should go on to your fave site next, why should I post your comment? They're all busy people, like you. To Mr. Rudeby International and Mr. Pottymouth: I also have a tendency to delete comments that are merely offensive. Go be offensive to someone who can smack you a good one upside the head. That may provide you with a needed incentive to stop and think about what you are trying to accomplish. To Mr. Righteous but Wrong: I don't publish comments that contain known or probable factual errors. There's already enough widely repeated misinformation out there, and if you don't have the time to do your homework, I don't either. To those who write to announce that at death I will either 1) disintegrate into nothingness or 2) go to Hell by a fast post, please pester someone else. I am a Catholic in communion with the Church and haven't the time for either village atheism or aimless Jesus-hollering.
