I personally think most creationists are phony. It's a scam to control people and lighten their wallets without breaking laws. With luck you don't even have to pay taxes.

well... I think of Creationist Movements in much the same way I think of Leftist Movements: The *leadership* is phoney, a bunch of power/money-grubbing liars, thugs, and pimps; The *grass-roots* are sincere, but dangerously ignorant.

I'm sure this is true of big organizations like AIG and DI. They probably laugh at their customers while counting their money.

I am inclined to suspect this of all "movements" - including the conservative "movement".

it is my baseline assumption that movement leaders consider their followers to be "suckers".

This assumption can be confirmed or falsified by empirical evidence.

So far as I can tell, NO movement is entirely free of this, and few movements are not dominated by this.

And so... my contempt for "groupthink" and "identity politics" and "movements" grows ever more set.

It seems to be true for the Institute for Creation Research:

As a missionary organization, ICR is funded by God's people. The great majority of its income is provided by individual donors who desire to proclaim God's truth about origins. We invite you to join this key group of supporters.

Gifts can be designated for research, the graduate school, seminars, or any specific part of the ICR ministry. All others will be used where most needed. We pledge to use them wisely and with integrity. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your donations are tax exempt.

Well, Dembski's Filtre shows no essential difference between RWC1, Bonsell, & Buckingham.

Note that "Sendero Luminoso" manages quite well without having the words: "people's" or "movement" or "democratic" or "front" in their name.

besides, the name "Shining Path" references directly the old Maoist/Marxist populism, so calling it the "People's Democratic Front of the Shining Path Movement" would be a bit redundant, no?

Darwin's Influence on Ruthless Laissez Faire Capitalism. ICR links Darwin to good ol' capitalism.

Well, at least they don't pay taxes.

Figure A has an intriguing little yellow pop-up tag in my browser. Something to do with Hox genes.
