  • Church and State (tip to Pedantsareus)

  • Three of my favorite fictional characters (tip to Micahel).

  • Teacher suspended over 'gay animal' article
  • A Southwestern High School English teacher has been suspended after reports he had students in his classes to read an article about homsexuality in the animal kingdom. . .

    Delong is said to have allowed students to read the article “The Gay Animal Kingdom” from the June 7, 2006, edition of Seed magazine. Seed magazine is a science and culture publication.

    The article by Jonah Lehrer talks about the research of Joan Roughgarden, a biology professor at Stanford University who said she has documented homosexual societies among the more than 450 animal species.

  • Fellatio by Fruit Bats Prolongs Copulation Time
  • Perhaps if Mr. Delong (see previous link) gets his job back he can continue his students education by having them read this.

  • How Creationist 'Origin' Distorts Darwin
  • In this post, Eugenie C. Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, critiques creationist Ray Comfort's new, antievolution version of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. The NCSE is the leading group promoting and defending the teaching of evolution in public schools. This is part of a debate in which I've asked Comfort and Scott to give me their perspective.



Three of my favorite fictional characters

There are 4 characters listed.

Which is either not your favorite, or real?

One is the other 3 - a kind of trinity, as it were.

Big religion-oriented day on el dia de los muertos!

The bats article makes me wonder about the white nose disease, and would there be male on male bat fellatio? Then again, back in the 90's, that wasn't considered sex, so perhaps it wouldn't matter.

As for the creationist article, it's good for those who are with evolution, because it's important to know just how the creationists are cherry picking the evidence. Something to bone up on before heading home.

I'd like to know the argument presented by the school board of the suspension on how homosexuality as an observable trait in the animal kingdom is any different from other phenotypical features of species.
