PZ points out that the retards are at it again. A ridiculous book “What you aren’t being told about astronomy” and its idiotic web site, creationastronomy.com are there and ready to confuse the confused and insult the knowledgeable. It’s ironic that the author quotes published open questions in solar system research as evidence for his [...]
From PZ Myers, of course: Natural selection is such a clear, simple idea that biologists around the world were wacking themselves in the forehead when they read [Darwin's] book, saying, “Of course! Why didn’t I think of that!” He laid out the facts as everybody already knew them, with simple and irrefutible logic leading to [...]
After having recently interviewed Ernan McMullin I found this page on writings by Christian scientists. These are the lot that Myers and Dawkins tend to not talk about because they make sense. I still tend to think their theology is silly but at least it doesn’t conflict with scientific principles. I found this quote interesting [...]
From the Ha Ha Dept. of the Insanity Division of the Institute for Creation Research
Here’s what we know: 1. 13.73 billion years ago, the universe was created. 2. Somewhere around 4 billion years ago the Earth was created. 3. Around 3 billion years ago, life formed. 4. Life evolved and grew more and more complex and diverse. 5. Today there are millions of species. The Intelligent Design (ID) movement, [...]
Thank you, micadelic, for one of the most inane analyses I’ve seen of the Expelled issue: i just wonder why, if mr. pz is so smart, he’s doesn’t realize he was used as part of a pretty clever publicity stunt. expelling him from expelled! and then he rushes to the nearest computer to breathlessly report [...]
PZ has another great post slicing and dicing ignorant creationists. You should read the whole thing but here is a humorous little quote: Even if physicist discovered that the Big Bang was a result of a cataclysmic battle between Odin and a gang of frost giants, it would not perturb our understanding of life’s history [...]
PZ Myers commanded suggested that we make sure you all knew about Expelled Exposed, the site which thoroughly debunks and discredits that piece of shit of creationist propaganda.
The global climate change debate has something in common with the evolution “debate”. (As an aside, I’d call the former an actual debate. The latter is only a debate in the minds of the deluded.) The thing in common is that in both cases you have one side arguing against scientific consensus and the other [...]
I just read a great comment by Joe Kilner on a post over at Good Math, Bad Math. I’m taking the liberty of quoting it in its entirety, but click on over to Good Math, Bad Math if you want to see the rest of the excellent discussion. Natural selection is basically a tautology, which [...]
PZ debates some IDiot from the Discovery Institute on the radio. It’s a blood bath. You can listen to it, too.
