Science’s Anti-Rock Ogre Bias

This comes from commenter Darren Pardee: BELIEVER: I believe the Earth was created by giant Rock Ogres not too long ago. Since it’s historical science, and not observational, my theory is just as valid as yours. More so, in fact, because I have a Holy Book the Rock Ogres wrote for mankind before leaving the [Read More...]

Are Science And History That Different When It Comes To Denialism?

Via Phil Plait, a hilarious video from Jon Stewart on how challengers to science do what they do. Since I can’t embed it, here are links to it on Hulu and on the Daily Show web site.

Conservative Christians Promote Sex Change

It suddenly struck me today that, contrary to my assumptions, today’s conservative Christians apparently embrace the notion that one can be transgender, and actively support the idea of sex change operations.
