Readers, I haven’t heard a single wherewherewheredoeshstandonevolution? from a deeply concerned blonde since before Wisconsin prez hopeful Scott Walker dropped out, some while back.
I am agog! Am aghast!
Has Bimbo read a book at last?
Aw, you know the sort of thing I mean:
Here, from Matt Vespa:
Time magazine found Walker’s old science teacher–Ann Serpe–from high school to solve the evolution puzzle surrounding him. He was said to be accepting of all the lessons taught to him, according to Serpe (via Time):
Huh? There is no evolution puzzle surrounding Walker. He has no more information than the average well-read person, and in the age of ISIS, evolution is really only of interest to those of us who were already interested years or decades ago.
By contrast, as Trotsky put it, you may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.
Recalling the 2012 election, there was a ton of that stuff out there—which, in one sense, was great for me because it made for easy one-off posts while I was very busy with something else.
Not so great for readers, though. You deserve better.
And even if they start the Darwin circus up again this time out, we might not have time for it.

Question: If Bimbo did read a book about what’s really going on right now in evolution, what should he read? Darwin’s Doubt? The Paradigm Shifters: Overthrowing “the Hegemony of the Culture of Darwin”? Evolution: A Theory Still in Crisis
