In the Brood
Brian Switek at Laelaps has a long but very good post about the evolution of our concepts of human origins.
For reasons only his intimate friends will understand, John Wilkins focuses on the mention of petrified testicles. Personally, I was titillated by the image of God's fructifying brooding upon the waters of the deep, as reported by the author of The Old Testament vindicated from Modern Infidel Objections.
A sampling of the rest of the blog led me add Laelaps to my blog roll. I look forward to more articles of this quality (no pressure, Brian!).
Excuse me while I go polish up on my fructifying.
I have the same problem with book-buying but have yet to attempt anything more constructive than a lot of reading ... on which I am woefully behind.
Hes going to NCSE, I know, but couldn't he get an academic appointment?
(Don't tell me all that blogging backfired on him like it has some of the other "science" bloggers!)
And what about his Ph.D.?
Reasonable Kansasns want to know.
Heh! When one of them shows up, maybe I'll try to answer. In the meantime, ignoramuses who go around dropping irrelevant comments into random posts will just have to make do with the sound of the wind whistling between their ears.
