Pelecanus erythrorhynchos

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2016-10-27 03:06
Pelecanus erythrorhynchos – American white pelican, Walden Ponds, Boulder, Colorado, July 16, 2016. Mea culpa: The birds were just beyond the limit of my equipment, but this was the first time I recall seeing pelicans so late in the season and certainly the first time I have seen a juvenile. It may be sampling error – I do not visit Walden Ponds every week – but I wonder whether they are changing their migration... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Sayonara, EvolutionBlog

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2016-10-27 03:06
Jason Rosenhouse is calling it a day. His EvolutionBlog is ceasing publication. Jason is one of the veterans in the evolution/creationism wars, dating back to his postdoc at Kansas State around 14 years ago, when he got involved with the Kansas Board of Education’s efforts to pollute the teaching of biology with creationism. While Jason blogged on other topics–chess, religion, math–for our purposes here let it be remarked that Jason is one of the most... Richard B. Hoppe

More on Ark Park on opening day

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2016-10-27 03:06
Dan Phelps, who visited the Ark Park on opening day, has published a longer account, Kentucky Gets an Ark-Shaped Second Creation “Museum” on the website of the National Center for Science Education. The article has lots of detail and many more interesting pictures than we ran on PT. One section that especially amused me was the Ark Park’s attack on what you might call cutesy children’s books that tell the Noah story – which Mr.... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Philosophers to debate evolution; scientists protest

Panda's Thumb - Fri, 2016-10-21 17:39
Joel Velasco of Texas Tech University will debate Paul Nelson of the Discovery Institute on the topic, “Is Darwin’s theory flourishing or floundering?” according to an article by Victoria Cavazos in Hilltop Views, the student newspaper of St. Edward’s University of Austin, Texas. We will not discuss whether it is floundering or foundering; it is doing neither, and 11 science faculty expressed their opposition to the debate, which they called a “debate.” The signatories to...

Climate science and fetal-tissue research under attack

Panda's Thumb - Mon, 2016-10-17 16:38
Interesting and important program, Science in the crosshairs, on Science Friday today. Host Ira Flatow interviewed Michael Mann of hockey-stick fame, virologist Carolyn Coyne, Lauren Kurtz of the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund, and surgery resident Eugene Gu, who is also the founder of a startup called Ganogen. The impetus for the program, or at least one of the impetuses, was a blizzard of subpoenas issued by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Plan to defend against war on science

Panda's Thumb - Mon, 2016-10-17 16:38
I just received an e-mail (along with half a million of my best friends) from Shawn Otto, the founder of sciencedebate.org, touting his recent article, “A plan to defend against the war on science,” in Scientific American. I thought it was a good article, but a plan it is not; the “plan” shows up in the second-last paragraph and says only, There are solutions, however. Sciencedebates.org [sic] is certainly a start. Evidence shows the public... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Ark Park as obstacle to scientific understanding among religious public

Panda's Thumb - Sun, 2016-10-09 06:59
Dan Phelps, President of the Kentucky Paleontological Society, invites us to watch a YouTube presentation of a paper he and his colleagues, Kent Ratajeski and Joel Duff, presented at the recent national meeting of the Geographical Society of America. Watch it and, as Professor Ratajeski says, you can save the $40 admission fee, plus the $10 parking fee. And you will also find certain creationist myths debunked by these scientists, two of whom, Professors... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
