The Inner Fish speaks: Neil Shubin makes a guest appearance on Pharyngula


Neil Shubin, recent guest on The Colbert Report, author of the cover story of this month's Natural History magazine, author of the newly released book, Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body (amzn/b&n/abe/pwll), and most significantly, well known scientist and co-discoverer of the lovely transitional fossil, Tiktaalik roseae, has made a guest post on Pharyngula, describing his experiences in preparing for appearing on television — it's good stuff to read if you're thinking of communicating science to the mass media, or if you're a fan of either Shubin or Colbert.

Shubin apparently reads Pharyngula now and then, and he'll probably take a look at the comments on that article — if you've got questions, ask away, and maybe we'll get lucky and he'll grace us with a reply.


From a cartoon in a recent New Yorker magazine: A fish struggles to climb out of the water, carrying under one flipper a sign reading “The beginning is near!”. :-)

Where would a creationist stand on a read of pharyngula? Do the two co-exist in some means?

Panda is a kind of animals need to protect. From a cartoon, i learn lots of things. Thanks to it i have had another view about nature. Well- done!

It’s an interesting approach. I commonly see unexceptional views on the subject but yours it’s written in a pretty unusual fashion. Surely, I will revisit your website for additional info.

Couldn?t be written any better. Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

its an interesting approach i think it would have been better if you could write it in more detail.….

My inner fish is suggesting close this thread…
