The Carnival of the Liberals and the Culture War
Carnival of the Liberals #91 is now up at Crowded Head, Cozy Bed. Most of the articles are exclusively political, and they’re good reads, but I’m looking for anti-fundie articles. There are several of those, and my favorite is “The Desperation of the Powerless” at And Doctor Biobrain’s Response Is…. The good doctor tells us why we should worry when James Dobson concedes the culture war. Check it out!
Ken Ham Bonus!
While I was searching for an image about the culture war to decorate this post, I came across an article at Tiny Frog about Ken Ham and Answers in Genesis. According to Tiny, the AIG website gets way more traffic than the Discovery Institute. That surprised me. Since the DI has been so successful in spreading confusion about evolution, I assumed that they had more public mindshare than they do. I guess their message is getting out, but people don’t take the next step, which is to buy into that whole Intelligent Design creationism fraud. It looks like the public is even stupider than I thought. They much prefer AIG’s laughable young-earth creationism, which doesn’t even pretend to be scientific.
Here’s a picture from Tiny Frog’s article. He pulled it out of a book Ken Ham published in 1987. You should pay him a visit to see the rest.
