The Evolutionary Consequences of Blood-Stage Vaccination on the Rodent Malaria Plasmodium chabaudi The concept of vaccination is, superficially, simple– Safely mimic ‘infection’ so your immune system learns how to fight a pathogen, without needing to get sick from the genuine pathogen.  Then if you are ever exposed to the real, scary pathogen, your immune system…

Family Guy, S07E02 ‘I Dream of Jesus’: Peter: Brian, can I see that paper for a sec? (Brian gives Peter the paper. Peter peruses the paper.) Peter: Huh… that’s odd… I thought that would big news. Brian: You thought what would be big news? Peter: Well there seems to be an absence of a certain…

Hey, do you all remember Michael Behe? Dude was for real ‘famous’ a while back (not just ‘Christian famous’). He went on talk shows and news programs (including the Colbert Report) to talk about his personal brand of Creationism, Intelligent Design. Unfortunately, things ‘didnt go as planned’ with Intelligent Design. The courts didnt buy ID,…

GO AWAY. NO ONE LIKES YOU. Part II

Dear Discovery Institute– GO AWAY. NO ONE LIKES YOU. Yours in Christ– –ERV UUUUUUUGH. The DI is going to be in Oklahoma, AGAIN. To show a stupid movie, AGAIN. Gee, I wonder if the ‘movie’ is going to be a bunch of assholes herp-durping about something pretty with stupid (probably stolen) computer animations with a…

There is some percentage of the population who have a better prognosis if infected with HIV-1 than the rest of us. Remember those pirate flags and sombreros I talk about sometimes?

He was like, the cock-of-the-walk when ‘Darwins Black Box’ came out, but then he made a total ass of himself testifying…

Helpful hint to Creationists: Never mention HIV-1. Just dont. It will make your lives much easier if you just see the word “HIV” and associate it with an ass whooping. You dont really understand what HIV-1 is or how it works, so just shut up, cause you look like a worthless IDiot. On the Discovery…

Recombination: Retrovirus Sex

There was a lot wrong with Micheal ‘Lilo‘ Behes description of HIV-1 in last years book, ‘Edge of Evolution‘. There is a lot of discussion in the Evilutionist community as to what constitutes a Creationist, but there are a few mistakes Creationists continually make when trying to argue against evilution, especially regarding ‘mutations’. Despite Lilos…

Vpu– Evilution keeps on rollin’

So almost exactly a year ago, Michael ‘LiLo’ Behe released his prized pig book, ‘Edge of Evolution‘, where he stated, with utmost certainty, that HIV-1 ‘has not evolved’. Yeah, that hasnt worked out too well for him. Anyway, unlike Ivory Handed Creationists who dont lower themselves to doing anything as dirty as ‘research’, scientists have…
