About a blog

A friend of mine recently pointed out a blog run by a University of Minnesota Morris professor: www.pharyngula.org. He's taking to the creationists like nobody's business, far better than a layman such as myself could. The plot by creationists to inject their non-scientific "Intelligent Design" theory into classrooms is very real, and very frightening. Unfortunately, many people think that the doctrine of equal time should apply to science as it does in politics, which is should not. I'm not arguing that as an alternative to Newton's Law of Gravity schools should teach my theory that planets are held in their orbits by invisible strands of Silly Putty between them and the Sun. Sounds crazy? Yep, but Intelligent Design has just as much scientific validity as that theory.

Take a look.

Also check out
www.pandasthumb.org

It is another fantastic blog that documents evolution-related issues (a panda's thumb is an contraption that has evolved as the panda has gone from a lineage of meat eating animals to an animal that feasts on bamboo.)

Here's another good blog to read. With all the talk about the Pope, here is a progressive religious site:
