Ted Cruz said that PP engages in horrific activities every day. Says they have video. Someone should put together a cancer and heart surgery compilation movie to show the horrific-ness of standard non-reproductive lifesaving medicine.

I have an announcement to make. Somehow, and I have absolutely no idea how, every person in all of my circles has been deleted from my circles.  I have no one circled.

I must have been in your circles and I received this through my e-mails. But I don't remember ever having chatted to you or being circled. But the fact I got an e-mail means that your friends may have one to.

The US Treasury Department has announced that the $10 bill will have a depiction of a woman, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which allowed women to vote. And now, apparently, everyone can vote on who that woman will be. Or, at least, make a suggestion. The bill…

As planned, I interviewed Sheril this morning on MN Atheist Talk Radio about the Science Debate Dot Org project. Mike Haubrich was host. I think it was a great interview, please give it a listen. The interview is available here. I also interviewed Sheril about this important topic on paper here.

Human released greenhouse gas pollution continues to warm the surface of the planet. May was thought to be likely a very very warm month but it turns out to be merely very warm (only one “very”) according to data released this morning. Shockingly, May turned out to be, in the NASA GISS data set, less…

We hear this all the time. Pig physiology is like people physiology. Pigs and humans have the same immune system, same digestive system, get the same diseases. Pigs are smart like people are smart.

except that  they are walking bacon, assholes that walk on  two legs are not.  BIG  DIFFERENCE!!.  I love bacon, therefore I love pigs.  If I have a bacon sandwich, I like to use bacon for the  dressing and condiments.   The only bad thing about bacon is there is never enough bacon.

There is an 80% chance that a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico will become a tropical cyclone, a named storm, over the next couple of days. If that happens it will be called Bill. Possible Bill is not well defined and is poorly organized. The disturbance is currently near the Yucatan, and will move…

It begins with a garden or two. Once you have gardens, you have a resource that has the two most important characteristics anything can have with respect to human society. First, you can eat it. Second, your enemies can destroy it. If you have just a few gardens and get your food somewhere else, no…

Introduction
I write about evolution, other areas of biology, climate change, archaeology, and related topics.  I blog at Scienceblogs, 10,000 Birds, and a few other places.  I wrote a novella about the search for an elusive and strange primate in Africa, called Sungudogo (available on Amazon and elsewhere as an eBook).
