Ogre: since I'm still banned from Pharyngula, I just wanted to say here that I really enjoyed your comments about SAT and ACT. Very interesting stuff.

Well, I think it's interesting.  And I try to correct misconceptions about my line of work as much as possible.

I could go on and on... but I won't.

I just thought of something.

We ought to call the schools that attempt to actually put creationism into the curriculum, "The Red Shirts of ID".  Cause you just know they are gonna die.

My company is hiring science people (like 6) with some education background if anyone is interested in a career change.

i do science when i'm sober and i do have an educational background:  one of my relatives embezzeled the PTA funds and almost got away with it.

but aren't you somewhere it gets cold?  like it frosts or something every year?  or it snows?  or worse, in a big city where it snows?

You're kidding right?  Ever heard of Texas?

Austin.  Music capital of the world.  South by Southwest every year man (if you can afford it).

Wait a minute - I thought you were in Houston.  I live in Killeen, just a wee drive North.  If my district doesn't renew my contract I may be looking for work in a few months.  BA Biology, teaching the last 5 years.  What does this entail?

PMed

Got it. Thanks.  Definitely interested.  I'll get to it later tonight.

Old school tard watchers may remember this cat, Robert Gentry, the "Polonium Halo Prophet" who milked the shit out of a very tenuous Oak Ridge National Laboratory connection long enough to troll gullible creationists with his "evidence" of a young earth.  Well, I figured he might have doddered off into that dim night but he is weighing in on the Tennessee monkey bill

Quote
Robert Gentry, Knoxville

The March 20 News Sentinel report on the evolution bill cites three organizations as claiming it would " miseducate students" and "likely lead to scientifically unwarranted criticisms of evolution." I hold the bill would have the opposite effect, for it would legitimize classroom discussions to include my widely published scientific evidence that disproves evolution's big bang and ancient Earth scenarios, and also provides scientific affirmation to literal Genesis.

I have challenged America's leading evolutionists several times to meet me on a live national TV forum and, if possible, refute my disproof of the big bang and evolution. There was no response, so there is no reason to believe they would react differently if I again challenged them. But there is still a way for this to occur. Knoxville is filled with churches that believe in Genesis. Any one of them could sponsor me at the coliseum while also inviting prominent evolutionists who have boisterously claimed Genesis is false science to now come forward and, if possible, refute my disproof of the big bang and prove evolution is correct after all.


buy my book, etc.

where the fuck is gary when you need him LOL

and you lot are still pissing about on UD when there is VERY REAL tard out there for the taking

NY Times Article on Tim Tebow

From the article:
Despite his age at the time, Tebow has specific memories of the awakening: of being in bed, scared he would go to hell if something happened the next day.

He was 6 years old.  I see this as an example of fear-based manipulation, a la "Jesus Camp".  Poor little Timmy was terrified of going to hell.

At least they made a point of including clues to the bogus nature of the article -- I mean, "D. Avril Poisson" of the "High-Arctic Institute of the Museum of Montreal (HI-MOM)"? "I.D. Goode, longtime scientific consultant to the Kansas State Board of Education"? Yeah...

Your post prompted me to go and see what the state of the art is in downloadable apps for star gazing.  I spent $3 getting Star Walk for iPhone and judging by the few minutes i've played with it so far it's worth every penny.

She's doing fine, but one of her beautiful wolfhounds just got an echography and is expecting... 11 puppies!!!

That will keep her busy for a while, I guess...

Hi,

I came across this rebuttal to Tom D. Schneider's eV program

http://www.trueorigin.org/schneid....der.asp

It's 10 years old at this stage, and while I certainly don't buy it, as evidenced by publications citing the eV paper since, I don't have the expertise to fact-check the "objections".  Has anything been written about this rebuttal?

Thanks
