Are men idiots?

Panda's Thumb - Mon, 2014-12-22 23:51
That is, are male members of the species Homo sapiens idiots? No, but according to a recent article, they are more likely to be idiots than women are. The only thing surprising about this conclusion is that it is so unsurprising.

Groundless Annual Ritual of ID Self-Congratulation

Panda's Thumb - Fri, 2014-12-19 20:46
(Reprinted from Recursivity.) As each year draws to a close, we can expect being treated to the annual ritual of self-congratulation by intelligent design advocates. Why, they have accomplished so much in the last year! The movement is simply overflowing with ideas! And honest, god-fearing people! And real scientists! And publishing successes! Not at all like those dogmatic, liberal, communistic, intolerant, censoring, Nazi-like evolutionists! 2014 is no different. Here we have the DI's official clown,... Jeffrey Shallit

Disappointing news from Scotland

The Scottish government rejected the proposal to ban the teaching of creationism in publicly funded schools in Scotland, according to the Glasgow Herald (December 16, 2014). The head of Curriculum Unit at the Learning Directorate told the newspaper, "I can ... confirm that there are no plans to issue guidance to schools or education authorities to prevent the presentation of creationism, intelligent design or similar doctrines by teachers or school visitors. The evidence available suggests that guidance on these matters is unnecessary."
