A cyber storm is raging at WordPress. They’ve changed the editor for creating posts, and it seems that no one likes it. Lots of controversy, and it’s no fun.
Meanwhile, there’s no news of The Controversy between evolution and creationism, so it’s a slow day — which is just as well because editing a new post is somewhat agonizing. We note, however, that the Discoveroids’ lost revival — see Discovery Institute’s Lost Creationist Revival — is still lost.
And in South Carolina, where they’ve been having an agonizing bureaucratic squabble over education standards — see There Are Weird Creationists in South Carolina — there’s been another development, so to speak. In the Post and Courier of Charleston, South Carolina we found this headline:Palmetto Sunrise: Evolution vote left for another day. One excerpt will be sufficient:
The State Board of Education postponed a vote Wednesday on newly written language for South Carolina’s evolution standard. … The language, which has been touted as a compromise, requires students to understand that the theory of evolution, like any other scientific theory, may change as new scientific information is obtained.
So you see what we’re dealing with. Besides software problems at WordPress, there’s no news worth writing about anyway.
To show you just how slow things are, we’ve posted a new pic of Argos (a/k/a Aaaargh!!), one of your Curmudgeon’s two splendid Dobermans, sleeping under our desk.
Therefore, it’s time for an Intellectual Free-Fire Zone. 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!
