Gravity Is Just a Theory

You Know, Gravity is Only a Theory Too © Ellen Bulger

This is a post by guest blogger Ellen Bulger. If I hear “Evolution is only a theory!” one more time, my head might very well explode. What in hell goes on in the schools? Maybe, instead of the dumbed-down GEE-WHIZ-WATER-IS-WET science that is designed to break the hearts of the kids who really care and …

FTF1 – Kevin Padian – Lessons from the Dover Trial

What are you doing for Darwin Day?

Tomorrow is Charles Darwin’s 202nd birthday. How are you celebrating? I’m going to the ZOO! I’m pulling together an event with the Minneapolis Skeptics to celebrate International Darwin Day. We’re going to visit the Como Park Zoo’s primate house, chat Darwin, share our favorite evolution books, movies, and news, take pictures with our primate cousins and/or whatever else …

This video is for those of you who want to know more about the Scopes Monkey Trial, or maybe just see it in a completely new way. Well done, sir! Richard Milner has more Darwin videos at his Youtube channel. The most sacred thing a man can do is to tell the world what he believes …

Odds and Ends

Things that make me sad: Oil slicks in the Gulf of Mexico and the Great Barrier Reef.  I’m just getting my SCUBA certification this spring – quite screwing up the pretty diving areas! The Party of Hell No! – Republicans who like to look tough when they’re grilling Goldman Sachs executives, but who vote no to discussing Wall Street …
