The Fox News website recently ran this story on the 7 Weirdest Jobs in Science. To this list I would add an eighth – Evolutionary Biologist (EB). To be an EB these days, not only does one have to explain away large bits of contrary data, but also believe that the mass amounts of complex specified information observed throughout biological systems is easily explained by the blind, purposeless forces of matter and energy interacting over eons of time through chance and/or necessity.
Given the choice of being an EB or one of the 7 other Science careers mentioned, I’d opt to be a Scatologist. At least the crap they talk about is real!
