Hail Britannia!

Hey! Troy Britain, longtime habitué of the Talk Origins usenet group (that's him with Barbara Forrest) has started a new blog named Playing Chess with Pigeons. If it proves as funny and enlightening as the title, it will be well worth your time! About the title, Troy explains:

The title comes (apparently) from a very amusing description of what it is like to debate creationists about evolution by S. D. Weitzenhoffer made in a comment on regarding Eugenie Scotts' book Evolution Vs. Creationism: An introduction (2004):

Debating creationists on the topic of evolution is rather like trying to play chess with a pigeon — it knocks the pieces over, craps on the board, and flies back to its flock to claim victory.
Like Troy, I've been there!

Give it a look!

Great blog name. I'll be stopping in over there for sure.
Thanks for the mention John, I hope I can measure up to expectations.
