Science Spring Showdown Sweet Sixteen: Game venues announced!

You've been waiting patiently. It's almost here!



GAMES TO BE PLAYED NEXT WEEK (April 2nd to 6th, 2007)

While the first two rounds of chemistry play were hosted here, Acid vs. d-orbitals will be hosted by The World's Fair and Fossil fuels vs. Erlenmeyer flask will be hosted by Page 3.14. (If you haven't already, check out the pre-game prognostication here and here. I heard a rumor that more is on the way.)

Next week, it's time for me to put on my philosophy of science hat and cover (with Ben Cohen) the Kuhn vs. Theory game, to be hosted right here.

Other matches of interest:

F = ma vs. Particle (hosted by Highly Allochthonous -- but they may be playing this one as a cricket match)
General Relativity vs. Bosons (hosted by Galactic Interactions)
Invertebrates vs. Photosynthesis (hosted by Deep Sea News)
Phylogenetics vs. HIV (hosted by Signout)
Corporate vs. Darwin (hosted by evolgen)

I know you've been playing it cool and keeping the nerdy goodness to yourself, but now is the time to drag your family, friends, and coworkers into the excitement. They'll thank you for it.

As we head into the Science Spring Showdown Sweet Sixteen, it seemed prudent to turn to some experts for their predictions on the two remaining games in the chemistry region, Acid vs. d-orbitals and Fossil fuels vs. Erlenmeyer flask. (Of course, we won't soon forget the exciting first and second…
This one was immense. It was also a dual effort (and not by "one of the guys" at the blog). Like the Puzzle Fantastica, this one is very difficult to re-post in its entirety. Luckily, Dave made a great graphic with links embedded to each game. I'll reprint the Press Center, then, which includes…

the Kuhn vs. Theory game, to be hosted right here.

I feel that I must pre-emptively protest this game.

My grounds are that the winner of the Kuhn vs. Popper game was actually Lakatos. (And I think I can prove that. Can you can refute it?)

Anyway, looking forward to Lakatos v. Theory. (misreading Kuhn is getting boring, it's high time to start misreading Lakatos.)
