Teach Science to Kids

Bill Nye vs Texas and Conservatives T...

May 4, 2012 Now that “Elves With Shotguns” is in the final stage of production and all I have to do is wait for RPGNow to approve the pdf for publication, I can finally sit back and enjoy the fruitful political and social discourse streaming through America’s media. By that, of course, I mean foam […]

You CAN Make Stupidity Legal!

April 18, 2012 Let’s make a deal, conservatives. You get to teach religion in science class when liberals get to teach science in church. You get to preach creationism if we get to come in and explain the inaccuracies of the sun standing still, a world-wide flood, and a six-thousand year-old planet with sentient life. […]

Learning How to Spell: The Greatest W...

March 8, 2012 Neil Degrasse Tyson narrated one of the most beautiful monologues I’ve ever heard. Superimposing his description of the most astounding fact about the universe was a treat for every science lover out there. In a nutshell, we are all made of star-stuff… We were made in the same furnaces that created every […]

Halloween Aftermath 2011

November 2, 2011 Why is Halloween so much fun? If you’re a kid, you get free candy and get to dress up and essentially play all day and night. You get to watch horror movies and act out in the darkest way possible without getting arrested (for the most part). But as an adult? I’m […]

Neutrinos and P-Brains

October 8, 2011 If there’s one thing I hate as much as I hate sloppy or lazy writing, it’s the inability of some people to grasp BASIC science. Things like the definition of “theory” or the scientific method, for example, are not so difficult that you need a doctorate to understand. We teach them to […]

Can’t Sleep. Dog Will Eat Me.

September 8, 2011 I was going to put together Divine by Zero for today, but let me tell you a little story. My sister has been out of town for a week, and Mary and I have been left alone with her faithful pup, Lucky. Lucky is a very sweet dog once she gets to […]

Curb-Stomped by Galileo

September 2, 2011 Wednesday’s article was part of a flood of internet talk about the movement by a Catholic group to bring back geocentrism. I berated them for basically ignoring science, for tossing aside the last four hundred years of observations in place of fringe beliefs supported by questionable data. I called them out for rejecting […]

Earth First! Nuke Mars!

August 30, 2011 People still believe the sun revolves around the Earth. And no, these aren’t some loony fringe group in some backwaters compound. This is an actual splinter group of the Catholic Church. They held a conference at the University Of Notre Dame. And if this story is to be believed, it is growing […]

Divine by Zero: Sean Connery Destroys...

July 7, 2011 No, I’m not going to address the Casey Anthony trial except for one thing. All I’m going to say is that everyone stunned by the verdict needs to answer one question: is there reasonable doubt? Yes. Is there evidence to show she did it? Oh yeah. But go back and look at […]
