Denier Fight IS STILL GOING!!

I cant take this, guys. I cant take this anymore. Im physically ill from laughing so hard over the past couple of days, and THEYRE STILL GOING AT IT! Duesberg was back on that radio show again this morning, fighting by himself. I have a years worth of blog fodder in the 30 minutes Duesberg…

Rockefeller Evolution Lectures Online!

With a guest appearance by Eugenie! I didnt know she was there until I clicked on “Feeding and Gloating for More: The Challenge of the New Creationism, Jerry A. Coyne, The University of Chicago” (having a little trouble with a few minutes of that vid, but might just be me). From RNA to Humans: A…

OMG YOU GUYS. OMG. IM SERIOUSLY YOU GUYS! Sometime, tomorrow, they say at ’11′ in the morning (Central Time? Mountain Time? Moon Man Time?), there is going to be a Denier fight between my HIV boyfriend Lenny Horowitz, and creepy Uncle Duesburg. O.M.G. Im still unclear about all the details that lead up to this…

What happens when a PI dies?

I always joke to summer students and rotating grad students: Your lab notebook. Keep it up to date. If you get hit by a bus tomorrow, I expect to be able to pick up exactly where you left off. Heart attacks happen. Car accidents happen. Random acts of violence happen. But we stand on each…

Just a few days ago, PZ wondered how in the hell Granny Spice, worst writer on the planet Earth, nay, the entire Milky Way, got nominated for some Christian writing award. I know why. You all wont believe me until you read this yourself, but Denyse O’Leary is not actually the worst writer ever. There…

Saviour Machines

Page 3.14 has a poll up now on the UK refusing to ban everyones favorite science experiments, MANIMALS! What 3.14 doesnt mention is that Parliament (is that what they call it?) debated another topic today I find equally creepy: Saviour Babies. Even with todays genetic counseling and genetic testing, sometimes shit just happens, and kids…

Aw common now.

Sciencewoman has been covering the Intel Science and Engineering Fair, and YAAAAY!! Three chickadees won the top prizes! Sweet! While the fact three girls won did get a nod from a random troll, it hasnt really been the main topic of the discussion. More people have been wondering “How the hell did a high school…

Spotlight on Louis Villarreal

If you are looking for a ‘hero’ to look up to in the viral evolution world, you probably couldnt find a better choice than Louis Villarreal of the University of California, Irvine. I mean, he is like *the* definition of someone who came from a tough background, had to struggle through school a bit, but…
