Creation Wiki and “Anticreation”

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

As if Conservapedia weren’t bad enough, there’s also something called Creation Wiki. Why do they need two?

I visited Creation Wiki today in search of something to make fun of, and there it […]

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

There’s some pretty funny stuff over at For example, here’s an excerpt from Four Science Fellows: Normally I would consider this next one too lowbrow, but there’s something in how he pulls it off that raises it above ordinary Terrance & Phillip-style humor: Finally, he’s got a whole section devoted to the lesser-known parts […]

The penny is going to be redesigned in 2009, so some ignorant fundies think that means that God is going away (if only…!). Here’s the highly-literate email: THIS IS WHAT OUR NEW PENNIES WILL LOOK LIKE. THANKS TO THE ACLU AND OTHER SIMILAR […]

80-Year-Old Evolution Cartoons

Saturday, October 13th, 2007

Thanks to the Old News archive at Cectic, I found a gallery of 24 political cartoons published in Evolution: A Journal of Nature.

Thanks to Bad Astronomy for alerting me to the cartoons of Cectic (I still haven’t figured out how to pronounce that). Here’s one of my favorites: They’ve pretty much run out of any other arguments. Go over to Cectic’s site and read the rest.
