I should have known it would come to this.
A week into our ScienceBlogs/DonorsChoose drive to raise money for schools, the warm spirit of pan-science-harmony has started to erode.
An anonymous source has come into possession of the text of an attack ad targeting our biological brethren and sistern. I hate to even give a story like this oxygen, but in the interests of full disclosure, I reproduce the ad below the fold.
“If it’s green and wriggles, it’s biology.”
“Biology is just stamp-collecting.”
“Biology is the ‘science’ with the greatest preponderance of women.”
“If biology were a real science, wouldn’t there be a Nobel Prize in biology?”
Stand up for real sciences.
