Skeptical? Or not skeptical enough?






I stole the above cartoon from a dKos Diary. The Diarist reprinted it with permission from this wonderful site: http://www.nearingzero.net/

I know this is old, but for those who are new to the Creationism controversy and have a problem with teaching evolution, read the following article:


The Creation/Evolution Continuum
by Eugenie C. Scott
http://www.ncseweb.org/resources/articles/1593_the_creationevolution_continu_12_7_2000.asp



That article (with an even niftier look of the graph) was reprinted in Skeptic, Vo.10, No.4, 2004.

If you still have a tin-foil hat on, read this for a sobering thought:

The Truth is Out There…Way Out There
by George Case
http://skeptic.com/eskeptic12-30-04.html






...and if you are still skeptical of Lakoff, read this wonderful series:

Lakoff - I. Who is George Lakoff?

Lakoff - II: Preliminaries
http://effectmeasure.blogspot.com/2004/12/lakoff-ii-preliminaries.html
Lakoff - III: Embodied concepts
http://effectmeasure.blogspot.com/2004/12/lakoff-iii-embodied-concepts.html
Lakoff - IV: Complex metaphors
http://effectmeasure.blogspot.com/2004/12/lakoff-iv-complex-metaphors.html
Lakoff - V: Setting the stage
http://effectmeasure.blogspot.com/2005/01/lakoff-v-setting-stage.html
