Surprise Link

I was over @ the Bad Astronomy blog hosted by Slate, when I saw off in the sidebar a list of links. One caught my eye and I clicked it with a slight groan. It was titled “Why You Should Stop Believing in Evolution.”

So I was certain to find some half baked creationist nonsense, but was pleasantly surprised. Turned out to be a pretty good lesson and some good points. Heck even the comments weren’t as bad as I thought they would be. I don’t know if this is a sign of people coming around, probably too much to hope for. It is promising.

The link: http://theweek.com/article/index/265653/why-you-should-stop-believing-in-evolution

I am link posting ignorant or something, for some reason I could not copy/paste that link, but it works from here as a copy/paste to the address bar, I just tried it. Nevermind that I have a 50% success rate with posting links that actually work. Is there a link posting class someplace?

EDIT: Okay, now it shows up as a working link. I did nothing to change it. It just works. How the devil does that work?

  1. “Evolution is nothing more than a fairly simple way of understanding what is unquestionably happening. You don’t believe in it — you either understand it or you don’t. But pretending evolution is a matter of faith can be a clever way to hijack the conversation, and pit it in a false duality against religion.”

    Excellent article. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Excellent article. But I have to admit, I hate bait-and-switch article titles like this haha. Otherwise the article was very well written.
