About

My name is Michael. I have a degree in biology with a minor in philosophy.

This blog is devoted to evolution, atheism, civil rights, free speech and whatever else tickles my fancy. It is geared towards defending the underlying theme of all of biology against the insult of creationism, ignorance, and misinformation. Also, sometimes I will use the British spelling of words, like “towards”. But most importantly, this blog is about science. First and foremost, science is the best way of knowing. It deserves a place high within any society. For the Sake of Science is here to fight against its undue degradation by quacks, provocateurs, and others. My defense of science has nearly gotten me sued and resulted in a bevy of wildly malicious and false attacks by pretend doctors, local politicians engaging in illegal behavior, and others. It has absolutely been worth it and I have no intention of ever stopping, even as I find myself blogging with less frequency.

There is a five-link limit per post. If you have more links than that in a post, it will automatically be caught by the spam filter and I may see it. Give me some time to find and approve it.

  1. Something interesting I found on the net:
    “The author of a book about the history of scientific revolutions described scientific theory as a suitcase that was intended to be filled with data, and needed to be able to accommodate all of it. If information was discovered that did not fit the theory, data would be hanging out of it and eventually the suitcase would no longer close properly. A new more capacious elegant suitcase-theory- would need to be invented”.

  2. Loved your comment Ara.

    This sentence:

    “My defense of science has nearly gotten me sued and resulted in a bevy of wildly malicious and false attacks by pretend doctors, local politicians engaging in illegal behavior, and others.”

    I think I know what you’re talking about, but I won’t publish those filthy rumors here. It’s disgusting what some politicians will do to their offices.

  3. YOU ARE A FUCKING SHEEPLE RETARD. (lIKE MOST EVERYONE)

  4. Well, so long as I fit in.

  5. I strongly suggest you abandon your allegiance to science in favor of truth. True science is based on data that can be “measured” “observed,” and “replicated” Much of our understanding of “science” falls short of that standard. If you are a serious searcher of truth and not just majority opinion, you will need to spend some time in serious, honest research. Unfortunately, most people are too insecure to actually scrutinize and test their favorite beliefs against empirical data. A good source of data that is backed up with real science around evolution is the Institute for Creation Science (ICR.org). The overwhelming amount of evidence convinced me that my public school education failed to adequately and honestly present the evidence that is widely available. We could discuss this for years, but “a man convinced against his will, is of the same opinion still”. Sometimes standing for the truth will require losing our insecure friends still living in the herd mentality. It’s the price of integrity.
