In April 25's pro-Evolution rant at Ars Technica, there is a quote by Glenn Branch of the NCSE that "There is no ethical requirement for graduate faculty to be complicit in the training of someone who is ultimately going to actively harm the field."

Here's an article that shows our children are speaking up in class. However, the other side is working on their presentation of doctrine.

The subject? Evolution.

Need ammunition for yourself and your family? I recommend the new Answers Magazine from Answers in Genesis. Check out the Institute for Creation Research, also.

For the wild-eyed discussion of the topic from (mostly) the other side and a description of the NY Academy of Sciences presentations, check this out(updated daily). (UArsTechnica discussions open for several hours and then are deleted.)

Thanks for your time!

Anybody else out there working on this?

Courtesy of the fine folks at Google, here's another Penn & Teller show on PETA.

Contains foul language. Bah.

By the way, they produced a computer game a long time ago that had a segment where the player had to drive a bus down a straight stretch of highway for about 8 hours. The bus would drift to the shoulder, so cheating was hard. The segment was worth 1 point. :^/ Twisted.

For those of you out there who are looking to buy a new PC, the new Intel-based Apple MacBook Pro laptops are faster than normal PC laptops with the same CPUs.

AND! They can now boot into Windows XP using Apple's Boot Camp technology. So, you can use programs like AutoCAD that are currently Windows-only and then, after work, reboot into a safe environment free of SpyWare and Viruses, etc. for email and web surfing.

Of course, this will work on the iMac, too. :^)

Spotted over at John Lott's blog: a crude, but sensible look at gun control by Penn & Teller

28 minutes long. Those with sensitive ears should be gently removed from the area.
A fairly benign, odd, and totally arbitrary occurrence happens early tomorrow: at 2 minutes and 3 seconds after 1 a.m., the date can be represented as "01:02:03 04/05/06"
Have you been thinking about getting rid of your Windows PC before upgrading to Vista? Good news: you won't have to make that decision anytime soon... ;^)

If you're considering getting a Mac, here's a testimonial. (Scroll down a little bit and read "tiffany." :^)
