One mean spirited decision intended to end the effort to end slavery led to one million dead and the end of slavery anyway. I spent some time this weekend comparing prosecutors and other legal eagles, who were all hoping to get the job of Attorney General. They were Candidates General, I guess. Trump was mentioned,…

How FOX treats Christians vs. Muslims

Not the same. Muslims must take the blame for all things done by anyone linked to an extreme Islamic group or ideology. Christians have nothing to do with anything, they were just standing there minding their own beeswax. The video below was fixed by Media Matters for America thusly: In a notably hypocritical segment on…

Mammoth Interview

Mike Haubrich and I are about to interview John McKay about his new book, Discovering the Mammoth: A Tale of Giants, Unicorns, Ivory, and the Birth of a New Science, for Ikonokast Podcast.

If you’ve not read The Autobiography of Charles Darwin, you should. It is always avaialable for next to nothing on the kindle, currently this version is 99 cents. Concerning his autobiography–written…

You’ve seen this horrid person in this horrid video calling for white people to take up arms and kill black people (and maybe Jews). The ad uses mostly dog whistles, so if your head is stuck deep in the sand, or up some orifice or another, you may be able to block out the message.…

People talk about resurrecting the Mammoth, the Dodo, the Quagga, or the Tasmanian devil, or any number of extinct (or mostly extinct) creatures. I’m all for that. I suggest removing cattle farming in Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana and adjoining areas of Canada, and repopulating the region with extinct megafauna. That would just be cool. There are…

Science and the Fourth of July

Science and The American Experiment Click here to find out how attacking science is attacking the Declaration of Independence. Read this book to discover the link between science and democracy.
