Carnival barking

I was planning on writing up this aforementioned talk for this afternoon’s post, but there ended up being so much to say about it (and not enough time, alas, as I have to run to a faculty meeting shortly) that I’ll save it until Monday. (I *will* say that it was jaw-dropping, but not in a good way). In the meantime, the fortnightly carnival of science blogging, Tangled Bank, is up over at Neurotopia after a few days of computer issues, and the latest Skeptics’ Circle can be found at The Second Sight.

    Oh, you’re gonna love this. Lynn Margulis appears to be an HIV denier:

    What is an HIV/AIDS denier? Or HIV/AIDS denialist?
    Peter Duesberg is a fine scientist, I have read his book and examined some of the scientific papers upon which it is based. From the CDC (Center for Disease Control) in Atlanta I have requested the scientific papers that prove the causal relationship between the HIV retrovirus and the IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME commonly known as AIDS. They have never sent even references to the peer-reviewed primary scientific literature that establishes the causal relationship because they can’t. Such papers do not exist.
