    Next you’ll tell me there are scientists who study…flaming balls of gas.

    Uh, given that you’ve written about nearly every creationist doofus of note, wouldn’t you be considered one of those scientists?

    Rocks you say?! Do you think she would know the answer to: “Can god create a rock so big, that even he cannot lift it over his head?”

    I’d really never thought of Howard Stern as a scientist but, once you put it that way, I suppose I sort of can imagine him in a lab coat…

    Gabbro is nice, green gabbro is even better: it is to creationists what
    green Kryptonite is to superman, and perhaps we can hope that in this
    context PZ is Mr Mxyztplk.

    I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be a bigger issue.

    Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( ) asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw an article describing each candidate’s stance on global warming and climate change on . So obviously they care about it. Is it the Medias fault for not asking the right questions or is it the candidates’ fault for not highlighting the right platforms? Does anyone know of other websites or articles that touch on this subject and candidates’ views? This is the biggest problem of the century and for generations to come…you would think the next president of the United States would be more vocal about it.

    Pumbaa: Timon, ever wonder what those sparkly dots are up there?
    Timon: Pumbaa, I don’t wonder; I know.
    Pumbaa: Oh. What are they?
    Timon: They’re fireflies. Fireflies that, uh… got stuck up on that big bluish-black thing.
    Pumbaa: Oh, gee. I always thought they were balls of gas burning billions of miles away.
    Timon: Pumbaa, with you, everything’s gas.
