A Discussion About Recent Scientific Advances And Science News Minus The Technical Jargon (Whenever Possible)
Monday, March 31, 2008
I know, I know. I'm a little late to the party. Everyone was abuzz about the Myers/Dawkins move theatre scandal... and it was priceless. It took over the internet so fast I saw no reason to post about it. But now I want to link to Eugenie Scott's anti-Expelled webpage; expelledexposed.com
Go there now and go there often. Link to it if you have a blog or a webpage. As Genie mentioned on the SGU podcast this week, how great would it be for this to come up every time someone googled Expelled? I'll tell you the answer... super-great.
A drunkard's walk refers to the mathematical expression of successive steps, where each step can diffuse in any random direction. That pretty much sums up this blog. I'll write about nearly anything as long as it has to do with science, and I'm still waiting to see where this will end up.
I am a graduate fellow studying biology. I'm interested in science and culture, science policy, the public's attitude towards it, skepticism, empiricism, and logic. Still trying to work out what this blog will actually be about, but right now it's just random items that I find interesting, with a focus on translating scientific advances, explaining life as a scientist for the non-scientist, and promoting logical thinking.
