Cectic’s “Alternative Sports Reporting”

Not only does this comic point out the absurdity of treating any ‘alternative’ theory seriously, it actually makes a deeper point. It’s also a critic of modern American media. When the media reports on almost any issue, it tries to report on both sides of that issue, even when one side is a deluded minority with an agenda.

It kinda brings to mind media’s coverage of global warming and teaching evolution, doesn’t it?

Happy Friday!

The International Society of Solipsists

That’s right! You too can join the International Society of Solipsists. That is, if my mind creates a scenario in which you join the society… Still! All you have to do is “send a brief Vita and three letters of recommendation from yourself.” Then you can look forward to enjoying activities like next fall’s ethics symposium “The Me Generation”, which will be followed by a reception in the Hall of Mirrors.

What will my subconscious dream up next?

Intelligent Falling

Taking inspiration from this Onion story and this recent comment by Diacanu, I present to you A Letter from an IF Proponent:

We Need to Hear From Public School Science Teachers

My name is David Brainsfull and I’ve been a member of CUAI for over 20 years. Over the past few months I’ve been allied with The Florida Bad-Policy Council in trying to undermine the new Florida State Department of Education Science Standards. The Florida Family Bad-Policy Council (FFBPC) is a hate based anti-choice, anti-gay, anti-homosexual (can’t be overstated) uneducational advocacy group that is associated with Dr. James Dipson and Fucup the Family.

The Florida Department of Education has written new science standards that will require Florida science teachers to present gravity as a proven fact. There are no provisions included in the standards that will allow for the critical analysis of the theory of gravity. Thus many of us that object to the “science” used to present gravity as a fact have no recourse but to teach the lie of gravity as though it is a proven fact.

Those Wacky Creationists

The above comment was from Cectic.com. If you don’t get it, you really need to read this account of a run-in between an evolutionary biologist and the creators of a creationist propaganda film.

On a side note, that Cectic.com site looks pretty good. I’ll have to feature more of their stuff here in the future.

Insight

This past week, our local NPR station was having one of its two annual pledge drives. Much of it consists of two of the station’s personalities giving reasons why we should call and give them money. This is completely unscripted. Yesterday, one of them said:

“Chances are, you are like most people…”

Such breathtaking insight is rarely to be heard anywhere.
