New on blogroll: Turks and "young Turks"
Please welcome to the blogroll Overwhelming Evidence, an edgy Ame4rican student ID site, and Akilli-tasarim, a Turkish language ID site.
By the way, one reason I haven't been posting much is that I have been going through the Post-Darwinist and the Mindful Hack archives, and adding keywords to the posts composed on Old Blogger. (I didn't use keywords then. These keywords should make searching using the Google search engine easier.
New Blogger seems only to offer one choice when you search within the blog. You must get out into the main Google search page for stories I have covered over time. I try to keep my keywords consistent.
(For those new to this sort of thing: Keywords are the words that appear at the bottom of the post. You might read, for example, "Darwinism and popular culture," "intelligent design and popular culture," "Michael Behe", et cetera. In this one, you will see "service note, blogroll, keywords." You can search on them using the Google search engine, www.google.com. For best and quickest results, if you know that you read the item you are looking for at the Post-Darwinist, include "Post-Darwinist" in your search.)
If you like this blog, check out my book on the intelligent design controversy, By Design or by Chance?, or my book of essays on faith and science topics, Faith@Science: Why science needs faith in the 21st century (Winnipeg: J. Gordon Shillingford, 2001). You can read excerpts as well.

Blog policy note:Comments are permitted on this blog, but they are moderated. Fully anonymous posts and URLs posted without comment will be accepted if I think they contribute to a discussion. For best results, give your name or some idea who you are and why we should care. To Mr. Anonymous: I'm not psychic, so if you won't tell me who you are, I can't guess and don't care. To Mr. Nude World (URL): If you can't be bothered telling site visitors why they should go on to your fave site next, why should I post your comment? They're all busy people, like you. To Mr. Rudesby International and Mr. Pottymouth: I also have a tendency to delete comments that are merely offensive. Go be offensive to someone who can smack you a good one upside the head. That may provide you with a needed incentive to stop and think about what you are trying to accomplish. To Mr. Righteous but Wrong: I don't publish comments that contain known or probable factual errors. There's already enough widely repeated misinformation out there, and if you don't have the time to do your homework, I don't either. To those who write to announce that at death I will either 1) disintegrate into nothingness or 2) go to Hell by a fast post, please pester someone else. I am a Catholic in communion with the Church and haven't the time for either village atheism or aimless Jesus-hollering.
