Your Favorite Life Science Blogs

I saw yesterday that PZ listed me as one of his three favorite life science blogs. I dont know what to say besides PZ and the folks at Pandas Thumb got me to start being pro-active about being pro-science, and, well, you know this means a lot to me.

I stand on the shoulders of giants :)

Congrats. It pays (at least in this regard) to be anti-antiscience, plus to know the shit as well as you do.

You know if they moved this over to ScienceBlogs then they wouldn't be having all these horrible template problems. They should probably start a petition or something, now shouldn't they. I'm just sayin...

... Does it look okay to everyone else now? I know the weird spacing, funny colors, and random BOLD was fun...

Anon-- LOL! I can hear the SEED admins now!! "Oh Jesus. Shes a little PZ. Jesus."

Ian said...

Congrats, again - I'd say it's well-deserved. If the SEED people have any sense, they'll try to entice you over.

I'm probably one of a large herd that headed over here from PZ-Land, but I'm staying! I really enjoyed your write-ups on the Dembski Debacle. If you want your audio transcribed, I'd be more than happy to do it.

Now....to go read some of the archives!

Be careful - The Giants suck this year. Go Bears!

ps: But seriously, you done good on that writin' stuff, and I also recommended that you go Seed, and they pay you and stuff.

pps: Dembski et al STILL have not commented or tried to spin his getting blasted at the OK Corral.
He may be DOA, and just doesn't realize it yet.

ERV said...

corbie-- Yay! I hope you stay! I had a lot of fun writing the 'ID vs ERVs' series, if youre looking for a starting point. Its really just me venting about Creationists hijacking/spinning mobile elements :)

J-Dog-- Lets post our predictions here! So far my readers have demonstrated a preternatural ability to predict the behavior of Creationists and Deniers.

I say-- ERV stalked him and tried to embarrass him on stage, but he won. Someone tried to explain the evolution of the flagella to him, but he won. Lots of students asked questions their teachers wrote for them just to get extra credit, but he won.

ERV - re: predictions

TOP TEN DEMBSKI EXCUSES

10.) All part of the Evil Darwinist Conspiracy out to get him
9.) Satan out to get him
8.) He was set-up by Satan-worshipping Darwinist Conspirators(aka Trinity Baptist Elders)
7.) Off his game because he was worried about OJ
6.) His Mom didn't love him.
5.) OK cheerleaders threated to give him a wedgie, right before he took the stage.
4.) Intelligent design? Oh Snap - I thought you meant Unintelligent Design!
3.) Concerned that Ohio National Guard would start shooting again.
2.) Hawt Co-Ed in front row used a mysterious force and a push-up bra to distract him.
1.) And the #1 Excuse for getting Pwned - THE DESIGNER DESIGNED IT THAT WAY!

I always enjoy your blog, and for lots of reasons. But, one main reason is that you present a fresh and earnest take on science (particularly biology, of course).

I'm an old fart, and I really enjoy the new perspectives that you and other young science bloggers bring to the table.

Also, I have to admit to liking the way that you spank those naughty creo-bots and IDiots that hover around . . . . . .

Congratulations, you deserve it. The "cottage cheese dripping..." will forever remain as one of the funniest comments I've ever seen by a science blogger.

BTW, have you seen this article posted at Tara Smith's blog? (click)

If you have, and you agree with her, then I know a perfect way you could protest. Ok, sorry bad taste...I just miss that original photo of yourself when you first created this blog and posted the link at IIDB...you know the one I mean.

Nope. He'll never write about it. If he doesn't write about it, it didn't happen.

Bill said...

Oh, Dembski will write about it. No doubt about it. However, it will be about how unfair it was and how the audience was packed with rude, close-minded, Darwinist, primordial ooze flingers.

But, as I've always said, if you've got a bad case of Dembskism laughter is the best medicine.

Andrew said...

ERV,

I've been lurking over here ever since your fantastic takedown of Behe that was cross-posted to the Panda's Thumb. I wish I could have seen you eviscerate Dembski in person.

In any event, I'll definitely be staying. Keep fighting the good fight!

I ended up here from SEB (Stupid Evil Bastard) in a round about way. I have read the front page stories at least and that in no way qualifies me to speak on anything you have said. However; you are intelligent and through you and your sources I have learned a great deal. Thank you :).

I make no pretenses about my horrible grammar and punctuation. To this... I say "FUCK IT". To each their own. Anyway, I am drunk, happy and enjoying what I am reading. Keep it up sucka!

This may not be the post for a hella-you-yah but, it is what it is. Look forward to reading more of your work.

David.

It's always surprising when one of the big names notice you, isn't it? PZ's praise is well deserved.

Oh you should have left that. Oh for crying out loud.
