Reminiscent of Mrs. McCave, who had twenty-three sons and named them all Dave, it seems that The Seed Mothership is having trouble making distinctions among her progeny. This is EvolutionBlog, folks. evolgen offers a different flavor of delectable bloggy goodness.

Apparently this is not the first time this particular confusion has happened:

Why, it seems like just last week that we were kvetching about the ad nominum attacks upon our character — or, at least, the spelling of our blog’s name. The people who add an extra “V” (turning evolgen into evolvgen) are lightweights compared to those who confuse us with Evolution Blog. As of today, we can add Page 6.0221415 x 1023 3.14 to the list:

From Evolgen, A Boom in Bible Publishing.
Jason Rosenhouse comments on an article in The New Yorker that casts Bible printing as a booming business.

I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be, named Jason Rosenhouse. I am an evolutionary geneticist; Jason is a mathematician. Jason writes about the cultural impact of evolution and religion as well as chess. I write about population genetics, molecular evolution, and genomics. I suck at chess and lack any semblance of cultural decency.

Well, there’s no one I’d rather be mistaken for. And go check out evolgen’s new banner! Very classy!

    Sorry, Jason. The attribution is now correct.

    No problem! Anything that allows me to make a “Too Many Daves” reference is fine by me.
