    We kind of know about Lincoln, but in case you hadn’t picked it up from the Discovery Institute there is a conspiracy to replace Lincoln’s Birthday with Darwin’s birthday. That’s why Monday the 16th is Presidents’ Day.

    Why are all lame “science” bloggers also biologists? And why do they just repost lame stuff that’s already on the internet and call it a blog – sometimes with a witty remark? And, why does Greg Laden drink his own pee? So many tough science questions to be answered. So little blogging time.

    Your Mom: Wrong. But nice try. Paranoia will destroy you. ps. thanks for posting links to stuff on the internet and calling it a blog. everyone would be lost if you didn’t provide a list of lame biology articles to read.
    Yes, I know, you do come to us from more than one IP address and I’ve not named all of your posting names. I suppose you could be coming to us from an anonymizer. None of this will matter once I’ve deleted you from existence. Or diemvowled you. Or whatever.
