Photography Contest VII: Finalists

Panda's Thumb - Wed, 2015-07-08 09:23
Here are the finalists of the 2015 photography contest. We received 16 photographs from 7 photographers, somewhat fewer than in previous years. This year we decided to choose 1 picture from each entrant and enlisted our wife to help with the choices. The text was written by the photographers and lightly edited for consistency. The finalists are given below the proverbial fold, in alphabetical order of last name. Please look through their photographs before voting... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

The leap second and the creationist

Panda's Thumb - Sun, 2015-07-05 00:30
I have got to stop following links in e-mails from AIG. Today I read the most bizarre article by Dr. Danny Faulkner, an astrophysicist who must have slept through his celestial mechanics courses. Dr. Faulkner discusses the leap second that will be added at 23:59:59 UTC (GMT) on June 30. He notes correctly that the rotation of the Earth is slowing down, and the moon is consequently drifting farther from the Earth. He then observes,... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Zack Kopplin gets nice write-up in Mother Jones

Panda's Thumb - Sun, 2015-07-05 00:30
You can read it for yourself here. But, for my money, Mr. Kopplin exposes Gov. Bobby Jindal’s inner hypocrite with these too kind words: “I mean, who knows? I could be totally wrong, and maybe Jindal believes this [creationism] with his whole heart. Which is more why I go back to what his kids are learning. I had their seventh-grade biology teacher at [University Laboratory School] where I went for middle school, and I know... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Will AIG return the Allosaurus fossil?

Panda's Thumb - Sun, 2015-07-05 00:30
Dan Phelps alerted us to the fact that AIG’s Allosaurus fossil had been donated by an organization headed by Michael Peroutka, a man affiliated with “a white supremacist, neo-Confederate and pro-secessionist organization that has been named a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.” Mr. Phelps now writes, Interesting that this press release didn’t get any coverage when I sent out the information last year. The Creation Museum received an Allosaurus dinosaur fossil appraised... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Unidentified fossil

Panda's Thumb - Sun, 2015-07-05 00:30
David MacMillan, who wrote an 8-part series on creationism for us, sent us these 4 photographs, along with the following request: “I recently moved back to central Kentucky. One of the things I came across while visiting my family was this fossilized object I discovered near my home here when I was about 9 or 10 years old. “Back in the late 90s, we were living in a new development and there was a...
