I stumbled upon an article at another WordPress blog that is very informative (and by all means deserves your traffic more than my lowly blog) on an unusual issue: strange maps. I highly recommend it, I’m a fairly average reader myself. How I found it this time though was that it links to my blog (sort of), which I found very cool, because it’s so relevant to what I talk about over and over and over…

But don’t take my word for it! Check it out yourself.

It’s about the subject of evolution and how it is taught on a per-state basis. The answer to how well it is taught in (most) states shouldn’t shock you. Most states are satisfactory; though this says it’s OK there, this is only partially true because this pertains to general evolution and not human evolution and may or may not talk about especially important parts of evolution, such as the evolution of viruses, which is very critical for people considering the field of medicine.

In the category of unsatisfactory, useless, or absent falls the second most states. Two of them were very obvious to me. Kentucky and Ohio.

Being the ├╝ber liberal (read: moderate) I am, I like sites such as fstdt and recently I found one thing of interest: Baptists for Brown 2008. As crazy as it sounds, the idea that the sun is the center of the solar system isn’t welcome there… Needless to say, neither is evolution.

It really looks like a parody, and believe me, I would be happy if it were… But I can’t tell. I looked for a disclaimer but couldn’t find any, so if someone could point one out, that’d be cool. Still, I’ve not much else to say on this wonderful phenomenon except…

Why don’t they hate me?

We’re using the same blogging system (WordPress.com!) and I’m a heavily controversial plus moderately popular blogger in support of evolution, atheism, and other true science, whilst at the same time dispelling religion, IDiots, and various other nonsensical belief systems.

That should be worse than a random gay guy, right? Oh wait, that’s the ultimate sin in Christianity… Well, luckily, I’m that too! So they’ve every (read: none at all) right to attack me vehemently.

Ah well, maybe they’ll notice my blog and put me on notice with bears thanks to the pingback directed at them. Until then, we wait…!

The politicians hate the Grand Theft Auto series, and any violent videogame. However, I stated that politicians dislike them because both sides have their spots where a nut says a game has just gotten someone (or multiple parties) killed.

Beyond having a funny storyline with plenty of in-jokes that are rather typical of the over-the-top GTA series, this one takes politics and steps it up a notch. I mean, I thought that other games of the same series (notably San Andreas) did a good job of making fun of things, but this one is wowtastic in that aspect.

But this isn’t a blog for random ramblings on a cool videogame, so I’ll get to our main point shortly.

I didn’t see Expelled as yet. Even though that gives me no permission to review the internal aspects of the film, aside from what has been released to me from others who have seen it, I can point out some things about the film itself, as well as creationism, that are a bit off to me.

Since today is Wednesday, April 16th, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed hits theaters in two days. Oh my, yes! Two days!

I’m sure you all know about the movie filled with scientific inaccuracies and nonsense, so we’ll cut that out of the picture for a while.

There seem to be a large quantity of fear-mongers out there who do nothing for us but hold us back. These people come in all shapes, forms, and promote all types of irrational, illogical fears. From Edward Dames (the Killshot) to Nancy Lieder (Planet X, or now IX) and to hell and back. No, seriously.

Many people have covered this, so I doubt it’s going to help all that much for me to, but it couldn’t hurt.
