Something smelly has washed up on EvolutionBeach.org

Reader Matt Bandy has kindly provided some background about source of the infromation from the new blog that has taken over my domain (evolutionbeach.org).
It looks like your former domain is now hosting a bunch of articles by Adnan Okta, aka Harun Yahya, a wealthy Turkish campaigner against evolution, noted anti-semite, convicted criminal, and head of "a secretive Islamic sect." He made a splash among paleontologists last year by mailing out tens of thousands of copies of his Atlas of Creation, an incredibly lavish and basically insane 800-page volume, to scholars worldwide. It also has some articles by Josh Greengerger, another prolific creationist, as well as some pieces that appear to be plagiarized in a semi-literate fashion from various other sources. What a mess.
