Geeks Bearing Gifts
There's a relatively new blog out there called Imaging Geek that looks interesting.
It's by Bryan, a cell biologist working in Toronto, Canada, who studies, of course, biology and, particularly, apoptosis.
Basically ... sex and death. Who could ask for anything more?
Well, there is this:
According to the creationists there is some sort of scientific debate as to the reality of evolution. Strange, that in the 12 or so years that I've worked as a biologist that I've not run into it. You'd think that if such a controversy existed that one of the hundred or so scientists I've worked with and known would have mentioned it, or that it would have come up in one of the many scientific meetings I've attended, or that reviewers would have dinged me for not mentioning it in my papers where evolution was featured as a mechanism, or for that matter, that it would have come up in one of the thousands of scientific papers that have crossed my desk.
(It was actually sending any Blogger user to their own profile page. Lord knows where it sent non-Bloggers.)
I've incrementally improved my geekness by correcting it.
BTW, for brian and anyone else who may want to see it - http://imaginggeek.blogspot.com/
