Prof. Steve Steve at AAAS 2007

| 4 Comments

Prof. Steve Steve and his trusty sidekick Nick Matzke plan to be at the NCSE booth at the AAAS Annual Meeting at the Hilton in downtown San Francisco from 10-5, Saturday, February 17. I know many PT people and ScienceBloggers are at the meeting, so stop by and see us! (transport info)

Prof. Steve Steve, and perhaps Nick, will also be in attendance on Sunday and Monday. It looks like Saturday and Sunday have free Exhibit Hall admission on account of 2007 Family Science Days.

As with every AAAS meeting, the true goal is to get invited to the Science Journalists’ Party, which I hope is Saturday night. They always throw quite a bash, although it will be hard to trump the molten chocolate fountain from the DC meeting a few years back.

OT, but as an experiment, could you try moving the pic of the good prof. to the top of your post instead of letting the text wrap around it to the right?

several of us are having problems with posts that have pics causing problems with the menu layer to the right.

thanks

CALL FOR PREDICTIONS

The Design Paradigm, a blog run by members of the Cornell IDEA Club, is asking for testable predictions based on “Darwinism” (i.e. evolution via the mechanism of natural selection). Your contributions are welcome.

Ooh, they’re picky. They will not accept predictions based merely on common descent (although you can see my comments there about that), the predictions have to specifically involve natural selection.

ivy privy,

I haven’t looked at the paper, but here is an item from earlier this week that seems to fit the bill.

“We went in search of a kin-detection system because some of the most important theories in evolutionary biology said such a thing should exist,” Cosmides said in a telephone interview.

I’d never heard of this particular ID blog. These guys sure can blog, can’t they? What they can’t seem to do is publish any research, even when they control the journal. They’ve missed the last 5 issues, and haven’t replied to my email asking when they’ll resume.

Cornell ID people–could you take a break from blogging about your revolutionary new science and actually publish some in your journal? Trust me, it won’t be hard. they’ll let anyone publish.
