I haven’t got time to investigate further, but Hovind watchers might be interested that Mr, Hovind (Dr. Dino) has been charged with filing a lien on property that had already been forfeited. Or something. A Forbes columnist, Peter Reilly, suggests that the government is piling on, and I suspect he is right; you may read about it here. Acknowledgement.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be posting a series of articles for the general public focused on understanding how species are related and how genomic data is used in research. We start with a background on phylogenetic trees. Imagine you could go back in time and meet your great grandmother or even your great-great-great-great-great grandmother, when they were your age.

Panda's Thumb - Mon, 2014-10-27 23:23
According to an article in Science today, a creationist group has booked a room for a conference at Michigan State University. Science is more discreet than I have to be, but it appears that they duped a student group into booking a room for them, and they are scheming to hold another conference at the University of Texas at Arlington. Science writes that the conference, scheduled for November 1 and called the Origins Summit, is... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
