Never bored!: Fun from nearby blogs

There are two stories below this one, but I'm now headed out of town for the rest of the day, so here's some fun as well from nearby blogs:

Australian biologist Steve Jones details the late Steve Gould's dance around the question of Darwinism and Darwin's stretcher about where and how he got his theory.

Lawrence Selden's blog, Darwinian Fundamentalismoffers a peek at the contestants in the Darwin look-alike contest.

At Real Physics, Lawrence Gage offers an account of the religion of Star Trek. Yes, it's relevant because secular religions that are anti-traditional religion are often allowed and encouraged in schools, where they are subsidized by all taxpayers. Have a look.

Telic Thoughts notes the demand that scientists start raising cain with traditional religious folk about their beliefs, presumably to protect materialism, whose book of Genesis is Darwinism. I wouldn't care about this except for this: When the government passes the collection plate, you MUST give big time. Why should any of it go to people who want to use it to raise cain with other taxpaying citizens about their religious beliefs?

If you're still bored, it's your own fault. Go for a walk. Talk to a butterfly.
THERE was never a Queen like Balkis,
From here to the wide world’s end;
But Balkis talked to a butterfly
As you would talk to a friend.

There was never a King like Solomon,
Not since the world began;
But Solomon talked to a butterfly
As a man would talk to a man.

She was Queen of Sabaea—
And he was Asia’s Lord—
But they both of ’em talked to butterflies
When they took their walks abroad!

- Kipling
