Happy birthday PZ Myers

As most of my 30-odd readers are probably aware, today is the 50th birthday of the blogfather of the science blogs.

Pharyngula is the top science blog for a good reason, and I can't decide if it says more about PZ Myers' influence that he is frequently attacked by the Discovery Institute (and once even was refered to as "a bulldog for Darwin" by them) or that Richard Dawkins wrote a birthday poem to him.

I will spare people from any effort of poetry, and instead just wish him happy birthday, or Tillykke med fødselsdagen, as we say in civilized society.

And here is a few links to posts that explains why Pharyngula is the top science blog (apart from Myers' ability to explain scientific issues and science papers in a way so even lay readers can understand it).

Planet of the Hats
The Courtier's Reply
And what is without a doubt my favorite post by Myers, and one of my favorite blogposts by anyone:
The proper reverence due those who have gone before
