Go to: YouTube has banned the James Randi Educational Foundation!?!?

I'm starting to get a little tired of Myers screaming for boycotts of this and that. Yes, lets get less people buying science magazines, and stop using technology that allows people to instantly share ideas. That'll make the world a better place!

Go to: New Scientist flips the bird at scientists, again

Luthien's Avatar Jump to comment 94 by Luthien

Seriously you guys need to get a grip. You know what I see here? I see you punishing New Scientist for what the lying manipulative creationists are doing. They (as Old Sarum has already pointed out) simply used a rhetorical device on their front cover. Why blame them if creationists are misusing it? It's unfair, and it could damage a magazine that is one of the few bridges between science for scientists, and science for lay people.

Stop fighting among yourselves and start doing something positive, like writing to all the people who had that front cover waved at them, explaining what the article was actually about!

...this suggests that it devotes its spare time to pulling wings off flies.

lol, it does indeed! This is the best version of the Epicurean paradox I have every heard ;)

Go to: Science of Watchmen

The interesting thing about Dr Manhattan is not how his "powers" might be possible, but the complex moral dilemas. Watchmen isn't just a kids comic, it is among other things an extremely sophisticated analysis of power and control. What would you do if you had that kind of power?
