The comments on this post …. On the Blending of God and Science … are getting pretty interesting. If this sort of thing interests you. Move over Pharyngula.

For the latest on Why Greg Is A Total Asshole, I direct you here, but don’t forget to read my comment, here. Do you think maybe my comment was too long? Sort of killed the discussion? I hope not. Also, have a look at this at White Coat Underground.

And finally, and I just don’t believe this is possible, but someone seems to have come up with a Remote Control Unit for your Cat. Ha!

    “Remote Control Unit for your Cat”….

    Now we actually can herd cats!

    And you, Greg, can get to your paperbacks faster.

    Oooh! Dang nabbit, that darn Greg! Someone oughta just stick a hi heel shoo up his arse, until he sqeels like the mens rights advocate that he is! He obviously hates da wiminsz and deir chilluns! We should kick him out of the village and let the real hyenas have their way wid him!
    Then, we could all just pre-castrate the alpha silverbacks before they get so damm beta, and wash each others buutz all day….

    They have every right to be offended by what they decided you meant with your post regardless what the actual facts may be.
    Obviously, you have an issue with shoes.
    That’s what this is about right?

    This is all kind of a blur, but did they accuse you of being racist and sexist? I also have no reason to believe that you are a creationist, so I’ve decided that’s exactly what you are.
    I hate you filthy racisexireationists!

    I ‘checked out’ your new blog and was very disappointed. While they were well-written paragraphs short little one paragraph posts are intrinsically uninteresting – with a format that limited you may as well be twittering. And there is no place for comments, and when I sent email to the ‘contact us’ email link to suggest that you consider longer pieces and adding an ability to comment the email bounced. All in all, quite unimpressive, and not nearly as worth your time as this blog is.

    Wow. Such drama. There are only a handful of blogs that I read here on Sb, and briefly reading from a few of those links makes me realize why.

    Oscar, try clicking on the headlines. There are full posts with comment capabilities. We’ll see about making that more intuitive. Thanks for letting us know about the broken mail link.
