    Off topic, but FYI, over at Ed Brayton’s Dispatches from the Culture Wars, on the Neufeld on Slavery and the Bible thread, David Heddle has endorsed divine genocide.

    “Perhaps a relevant though absurdly hypothetical question is: What if God (truly) commanded American Forces to annihilate Canada, and to kill every man, woman, and child, would it then be moral for us to obey that command? Yes, in fact it would be immoral not to.”

    What a guy.

    A little note about your blog in another direction. Things work fine as is, but you have, for some odd reason, two conflicting declarations in your headers.

    You have directives for both iso-8859-1 encoding and UTF-8 encoding. They do have a common subset of 7-bit ASCII, but that is still a bit odd thing to have in your HTML source. I think things would work just fine if you removed the iso-8859-1 line, since the older home of Pharyngula ( uses only that, and it seems to have worked perfectly there.

    The lines that I’m talking about look like this:

    They are near the beginning if you use the View Source feature, but not consecutive. It is possible that the Scienceblogs guys have something set up that inserts one of them, so you might check with them how to fix this.

    Like I said, it’s a minor issue. Things work fine as is. But you know, comments like this could help improve that 6.25% to something a little higher…

    Ahem, the lines look like this:
    meta http-equiv=”content-type” content=”text/html; charset=utf-8″ /

    Without the brackets it might even show up on the blog, and not just the preview. Sorry.
