Over what now, you wonder, could the Pharyngula – usually as placid as a sea of glass – be freaking? Actually over something kind of stale. Years ago, at the Post-Darwinist, I blogged on the fact that one of the late Stephen Jay Gould’s friends (yes, he of Wonderful Life AND The Simpsons) said that Gould would never have signed the Darwin lobby’s Steves list (all the Steves in science that the Darwin lobbyÃ‚Â can find who agree with them).
Pivar had his own take on evolution, which he thinks is much closer to what the original Steve really meant. And nowÃ‚Â his takeÃ‚Â is back for another run, too. Go here for the rest.
Also, more fun today at the Mindful Hack, OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢LearyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s blog on neuroscience issues,
