A total lack of relevant news means we’re on our own today. For your entertainment, the above is a recent three-minute video of Richard Dawkins discussing creationism. He doesn’t bother with atheism, so it’s fine for all audiences.
We continue to watch creationism bills that are still pending in states like Alabama (session ends mid-May), and Missouri (session ends on 05 May), and Oklahoma (session ends 25 May), but there’s nothing new to report.
The two pieces of litigation we’re following, the David Coppedge trial and the John Oller case, have managed to keep out of the news, but while we’re waiting for the judge’s decision in Coppedge, you can view the results of our Coppedge poll here. The John Freshwater case is still on appeal. You can read the latest at Panda’s Thumb here: Freshwater: Appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court.
As with all our free-fire zones, we’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.
We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it.
