Blog service note: Anonymous comments; blogger software
This blog does not intentionally accept fully anonymous comments. If I see them, I delete them. The fact that I may miss some should not be mistaken for growing tolerance. However, it is okay to post under Anonymous, rather than signing up with Blogger - as long as you identify yourself. Last week, there were some problems with the blogger software, and there may still be some glitches. which could lead to service denials in some cases. Remember, Blogger is free and bloggers are volunteers. Needless to say, for best service to blog readers, I delete, without notice, comments that are better suited to a biker bar than a public record. I prioritize such deletions over any other blog service issue.

Roseville, California, lawyer Larry Caldwell is suing over the use of tax money by Darwin lobby groups to promote religious views that accept Darwinian evolution (as opposed to ones that don’t). I’m pegging this one as the next big story. It will be interesting to see the line that the “separation of church and state” people take.
How to freak out your bio prof? What happened when a student bypassed the usual route of getting frogs drunk and dropping them down the chancellor’s robes, and tried questioning Darwinism instead.
Christoph, Cardinal Schonborn is not backing down from his contention that Darwinism is incompatible with Catholic faith, and Pope Benedict XVI probably thinks that’s just fine. Major US media have been trying to reach rewrite for months, with no success.
Museum tour guides to be trained to "respond" to those who question Darwinism. Read this item for an example of what at least one museum hopes to have them say.
Blog policy note: This blog does not intentionally accept fully anonymous Comments, Comments with language unsuited to an intellectual discussion, URLs posted without comment, or defamatory statements. Defamatory statement: A statement that would be actionable if anyone took the author seriously. For example, someone may say "O'Leary is a crummy journalist"; that's a matter of opinion and I don't know who would care. But if they say, "O'Leary was convicted of grand theft auto in 1983," well that's just plain false, and probably actionable, if the author were taken seriously. Also, due to time constraints, the moderator rarely responds to comments, and usually only about blog service issues.
