Over the Thanksgiving holiday LK and I visited my sister in New York. While we were there we did all of the touristy things one might expect, including an obligatory ferry ride over to check out the Statue of Liberty, and I can assure you it is just as beautiful and majestic as ever.
Meanwhile, over at The Skeptical Zone Tom English has posted an article entitled The Law of Conservation of Information is defunct. Apparently they are mighty proud of English’s article, because they have had it glued to the top of their homepage for nearly a month.
Anyone who has been following the ID debate for any length of time knows that reports of ID’s demise are issued by our opponents with monotonous regularity. And just as monotonously, those reports turn out to be false.

What does any of this have to do with the Statue of Liberty? Well, the title of English’s post reminded me of this scene from Saving Private Ryan (starting at 1:44).
