Luskin makes more mistakes on the Cambrian and Cladistics

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2015-07-23 06:05
(edited to add a point on Aegirocassis and Parapeytoia) This week, the Discovery Institute Press put out another book called Debating Darwin’s Doubt. I took one for the team and bought it, in part because a a decent chunk of the book is responding to me. I’m pretty sure I’ve never been mentioned so much in a book! Sadly, though, looking through it, almost all of it is material re-hashed from the DI “Evolution News... Nick Matzke http://www.talkdesign.org

Melting of polar ice

Panda's Thumb - Wed, 2015-07-22 18:54
Photograph by Dan Moore. Photography Contest VII: Winner. Melting of polar ice. Mr. Moore writes, “Our ship got caught in the ice and had to be freed by a Canadian ice breaker. Global warming – what?? Actually, yes – we could not get through because so much ice broke free further north near the polar ice cap and was blown south into the shipping channels.” Mr. Moore will receive a signed copy of Why Evolution...

Pluto and Spiderman

Panda's Thumb - Wed, 2015-07-22 18:54
Spiderman Shpiderman – a penpal of mine, who can identify himself if he likes (I will of course understand if he demurs), asks, There’s a lot of excitement and amazement about the lack of cratering and the height and sharpness of the geological features on Pluto. It appears that, contrary to earlier speculation, Pluto is geologically active and thus geologically young…though “young” in the sense that these features are probably less than 100 million...

Little Ice Age coming?

Panda's Thumb - Wed, 2015-07-22 18:54
I do not know what to make of this, but UPI reports that a team from the University of Northumbria, “saying they understand solar cycles better than ever, predict that the sun’s normal activity will decrease by 60 percent around 2030 – triggering the ‘mini ice age’ that could last for a decade.” That sentence is unclear, but I presume they mean “normal sunspot activity.” As they do not quite say, the northern hemisphere (at...

Why are giant pandas so lazy?

Panda's Thumb - Wed, 2015-07-22 18:54
Professor Steve Steve informs us of an article Why are pandas so lazy? in Science Now. Professor Steve Steve takes exception to the claim that he is lazy. Yes, it is true that the giant panda’s daily energy expenditure is about 5 MJ: roughly one-third that of a dog and about the same as a three-toed sloth. It is also true that Professor Steve Steve moves slowly and basks a lot in the sun. Why?... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
