Free Fire Zone of the Gaps

Our ceaseless news sweeps haven’t been producing much, but we have a couple of items you may find interesting.

The first is about the Louisiana creationism situation. See Why Zack Kopplin Is Losing Ground In The War Against Creationists. Here’s one excerpt to get you interested:

For the past eight years, 21-year-old Zack Kopplin has been fighting to keep creationism out of Louisiana’s science classrooms. Despite a series of setbacks and the feeling that he’s continually losing battles, Kopplin still feels he’ll win the war. We spoke with him to learn more.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, here’s a brief video from Rev David Rives: He’s launching something called the Genesis Science Network. He says it’s a 24-hour television network. That’s difficult to believe, and it’s even more difficult to believe that the necessary funding is available. Not even ol’ Hambo has ever attempted anything like this. We don’t know what to make of it.

That’s all we’ve got, so to fill the news gap we’re declaring this post to be an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. Talk about whatever you think is interesting — science, politics, philosophy, etc. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But beware of the profanity filters.

We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it!

  1. ‘Duck Dynasty’ Keeps Tax Break as Bobby Jindal Cuts Louisiana Colleges

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/duck-dynasty-keeps-tax-break-090000920.html;_ylt=AwrTcdxGHUhVfeMAe2oPxQt.;_ylu=X3oDMTByNWU4cGh1BGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw–

    And ole’ Bobby’s given them scientists and college folks some trouble as well. Maybe shut down the universities & watch the quacker show instead?

    Our pellets are intelligently designed by a guided cognitive process:

    Our digestive system has its own neural network.

  3. Zack Kopplin’s been fighting the creationists since he was 13? Now that’s my kind of kid!

    It would take all of 10 minutes to read the first 2 chapters of Genesis – what are they going to do with the other 23 hours and 50 minutes? Or will they just read the Bible in an endless loop?

  5. My, 2 minutes of the Good Rev rarely fails to produce a good laugh, but 24/7 is not even overkill anymore. The title is great though – Genesis Science Network.
    Well, as a former fan who would love to see my hero resurrected, so to speak, I have bookmarked

    But I’ll leave it to our dear SC to “subscribe to GSN’s weekly newsletter for Creation news, schedule, and alerts.”
    I’m sure he won’t want to miss a thing. Where will the quest of the Good Rev lead to?

    They do have a comments section. That should be interesting.

    My galactic responsibilities don’t leave me any time for that, but you can get the latest creation science news by dialing 1-800-PLANET7.

  8. It sounds like GSN is just a youtube channel. And yes the internet is 24/7

  9. GSN just so happens to also stand for the Game Show Network. Somewhere in there is a great joke about “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?”…

    Keep up the fight, Zack! Truly admirable.
