Darwin Was Wrong, Part 3: Friday Night

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

(Image from ntleper’s Zazzle store.) [In Part 1, I told you how I discovered that a lunatic creationist organization called Logos Research Associates was planning to put on a significant “scientific” seminar called Darwin Was Wrong.

An excerpt from the latest Bad Reporter: [I'll return to blogging about my experience at the creationism seminar in a day or two. Right now I'm sick, so I don't feel like writing. I'm pretty sure I have whine flu. It's not as bad as swine flu. It's just bad enough to make me complain.]

My Proof is Gone!

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Oh no! My proof of the non-existence of Ceiling Cat has been destroyed! For those of you keeping score at home, I did finally move out of that hotel two weeks ago today. I was in there for exactly nine weeks. There’s no excuse for them to have taken that long. At least Ericsan can [...]

Distributing His “Fixed” Version

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

Speaking of Jeff Eyges (who apparently needs his own blog), he alerted me to this comic. It comes from a site called Atheist Cartoons, which I was unfamiliar with.
