Happy 270th birthday, Jean-Baptiste!

Panda's Thumb - Fri, 2014-08-01 21:18
Jean-Baptiste Pierre Antoine de Monet was born on 1 August 1744 in Bazentin-le-Petit, Picardy, France. He was from a family of impoverished nobility, so he came to have the title Chevalier de Lamarck. He died at the age of 85 on 18 December 1829. He was probably the greatest invertebrate biologist, clarifying the classification of invertebrates greatly. For that matter he is the one who coined the terms “invertebrate” and “biology”. He also was the... Joe Felsenstein http://evolution.gs.washington.edu/felsenstein.html

The Last Word on the Ark Park

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2014-07-31 08:37
The Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority, in a unanimous vote, gave preliminary approval to $18 million in tax incentives for the Ark Park. In what you might call an unusual piece of reverse evolution, Lawrence O’Donnell last night made a monkey of Ken Ham, Biblical literalists, and the Tourism Authority. The “tape” is 8 min long and worth every moment. Unfortunately, it will not be the last word on the Ark Park.... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Its bright-orange companion is Grapsus grapsus – the Sally Lightfoot crab.”... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
