Lazy linking

Just a few links to things I've found interesting lately

National Geographic has a video with a humpback whale feeding frenzy (video embedded in page).

Laelaps has a blogpost about how some birds have picked up the filthy habit of smoking, but in a different way: Birds pick up a good smoking habit

Going back in time, I thought it might be a good idea to link to PZ Myers' old, but brilliant post The proper reverence due those who have gone before (the original post at his old blog-location can be found here).

The reason why I link to that post, is to say to all the people who criticize PZ for his "militant" atheism, that if such writing is considered militant, then I'll take militant any day of the week.
Other noteworthy atheist posts by PZ are:
The Wall: A Sunday morning story
Planet of the Hats

The always brilliant Lauren has a post up reflecting on how her life relates to a book reviewed by Bitch, Ph.D. - Promises I Can Keep: Elaborating On An Old Review

Abbie, over at ERV, has started an index to common creationist claims about ERVs

Foxy has written a nice post about evolving hardware over at Tyler and Foxy's Scientific and Mathematical Adventure Land (formerly Greedy, Greedy Algorithms)

Sara, at Sara Speaking, has two posts about racism in Avenue Q
everyone’s a little bit racist and christmas eve

Tara writes about the perils of the bikini wax

Ben Goldacre needs our help to keep his great site, Bad Science, running - read more here

A good post about framing by T. Ryan Gregory (via ERV). If you don't know what framing is, or haven't followed the debate, don't worry, the post will be sufficient.

Jill has a post up about the newest unspeakable vileness of the so called pro-life movement. Hello Birmingham

Are you pro-science enough?
William Dembski

In my previous post, I cited a Miami Herald article that refers to “The National Center for Science Education, a pro-science watchdog group.” For the real pro-science watchdog group, check out the following links:


That’s right. I own those domain names and they all refer back here. Let me encourage all contributors to this blog to use these domain names in referring to UD when they email Darwinists."

That's a bit of a bummer.

A Google search on "pro-science" doesn't show any of those websites (though Dembski's UD post shows up).

Google search results wearies from country to country, but my blog is the 3rd hit when I search on it.

Now, if people want to ensure that UD doesn't show up first when people search on "pro-science", they can solve that by linking to me a lot.... (yes, blatant link whoring are us).

Thank you for the link Kristjan. I've got another one in the pipe about the evolution of precocial/altricial young in vertebrates, but I've still got some more work to do on that one. Thanks again and keep up the good work science blogging.
