Roy’s a good friend of mine. I once broke into his house while he was sleeping and tried to drag him out of his bed. Bastard was too heavy.
This YouTube video that he made about why critical thinking is important was so awesome that I just had to post it here:
Having long ago signed up for the Expelled e-mail list and not received much from them since it came out on DVD, I was surprised when I found an e-mail titled as a “insider update” and was amused to find this:
I’ve got a better idea.
Make a difference… give your creationist friend, science teacher, or professor a copy of one of these books:
Why Evolution Is True by Jerry Coyne
Evolution: What the fossils say and why it matters by Donald Prothero
Science, Evolution and Creationism from the Big Science Academy National Academy of Sciences
Or, you can poke around Amazon.com for books about evolution yourself. Hell, buy some creationist books for your science teacher anyway so that they can have a good laugh. Expelled was just boring. Don’t put them through that. Have them read Answers in Genesis instead.
So, I’ve been the laziest blogger ever and haven’t posted since February 25th. I decided to actually write something today letting you all know that it’s my 16th birthday. As usual, all that means is that I’ve made 16 trips around the sun in my present assemblage of organic matter…
I’ve never realised before how small a number like 16 is. Only 16 trips around the sun. Damn, I feel insignificantly young. I mean, this planet has made at least 4 and a half billion trips around the sun, give or take a few hundred million.
You people reading my blog really don’t think I’m some naïve twat? And now that I’m one year older does this mean I don’t get to pass off my blogging laziness for my age?
Whatever. Go celebrate the birthday of Douglas Adams too. “Now there’s a frood who really knows where his towel is!”
