    Oye! You have a lot of nerve, given that you are a scientist, posting a blog carnival on homeschooling! The carnival is full of material suitable only to the delusional psychotic christian dominionists you cite. You should be ashamed of yourself!

    OK, public school is full of teachers who should have become warehousemen and brick masons, but it is on average a bit more free of religious brain washing of children than the homeschooling nut-cases that dominate the homeschooling domain. There is a place for homeschooling, however your citation of the delusional psychotic dominionists is over the top.

    Maybe your goal, given that many if not most of the homeschoolers cited are women, is to give some exposure to “successful” women. Laudable goal. However, I perceive you becoming a FemiNazi in your unquestioning (yes, unquestioning) support for women anything. Because of your lack of critical analysis of what you post, I have come to question your credibility.

    Try again.

    actually, i posted a link to that blog carnival BECAUSE they included a contribution that i sent to them. i mean, that’s the dealio.

    why did i sent them any contributions? because homeschoolers can use a good dose of scientifically relevant and useful information as resource materials, that’s why. they included something i wrote for everyone, including the evangelicals, to read, so i included a link to their carnival.

    are we so divided as a nation that we cannot even speak to each other anymore without being accused of compromising our core principles? if that’s the case, you tell me who i should vote for, since i don’t particularly like ANYONE who is running for public office and further, everyone running for the presidency is either religious, evangelical, or a f*cking preacher.

    and me, a feminazi? puhleeze. i am not going to kiss anyone’s ass because they are female or a minority or whatever. i call it like i see it, although i do try to maintain some semblance of civility while doing so (for awhile at least, before i go on “attack mode”). i actually was surprised that the blog carnival editor included any of my contribution since i AM an atheist and i do think that living a rational life is far better than the emotional falderall of social control that is religion.

    so in short, if you don’t want to read that blog carnival, then don’t. or better yet, go there and read all their linked essays and tell the author why they are wrong. if i had the time and desire to fight numerous battles on multiple blogs, i’d do that myself. but i am currently being quietly subversive.
