March 19th, 2014 by Inigo Montoya

“Mad.” I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

Evidence of Gravity Waves

March 17th, 2014 by Adam G.

The boffins say good ol’ Earth is cruising through gravity waves. Good thing the Woosters are famously good sailors, or else a chap could get a touch of mal de mer, what?

A Right Proper Mix of Contempt and Elan.

November 08th, 2013 by Adam G.

Highly recommended.  You’ll laugh, you’ll roar:


It’s pretty much the sort of stuff Bertrand Russell used to put out when he needed to knock-off a popular best-seller or dazzle one of his mistresses. You see, my dear, belief in god is no better than belief in a teacup orbiting Mars, whereupon my dear would generally begin loosening her undergarments. The fact is that these kinds of arguments have been known to embarrass a wart hog. This has been tested at zoos, by the way, and the experiments widely reported.

There is no argument against religion that is not also an argument against mathematics. Mathematicians are capable of grasping a world of objects that lies beyond space and time

Mormonism and Evolution: the Marriage of Christ and Darwin

September 19th, 2013 by Adam G.

Darwin_Fish_by_deaddamien People who accept evolution sometimes use it as a tool to decide whether religion is true or not. People who accept the gospel sometimes also use it as a tool to decide whether evolution can be true or not. People who accept evolution sometimes also use it as a tool to interpret religion–religion, they argue, must offer evolutionary benefits, since it is so widespread. These are all examples of treating either the gospel or evolutionary biology as true and putting the other in the dock.

But what if you treat both as true? (more…)

Making a sacrifice in the cause of scientific advancement

February 19th, 2013 by Vader

Polar bear milk contains up to 46 percent fat and tastes like the chalky cream of a fishy cow. And how do we know what it tastes like? Well, because polar bear scientists like Andrew Derocher are absurdly dedicated dudes.

Higgs boson announcement Wednesday, July 4th.

July 01st, 2012 by Bookslinger

The folks at CERN, who run the Large Hadron Collider, have supposedly “pre-announced” their discovery of the “Higgs boson“. Official announcement to come Wednesday, July 4, 2012.

I’m not sure what a “Higgs boson” is, but it’s science. Science is cool.

A World Worthy of A God

February 25th, 2011 by Adam G.

When I read what we are discovering in the natural world, or the discoveries that are still just beyond our grasp, my soul sings to my soul that this is a creation worthy of a God. (more…)
