Keeping abreast of the news

Interesting story about a recently revealed art forgery. Here, I'll entice you to click the link: "Then, on March 16, he noticed a gap in a piece of cheap wood paneling on the wall. He pushed the panel, and it moved."

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) resemblance to NASA doesn't stop at the FLA. Public affairs weasels have been leaning on the scientists to not talk about global warming. If we citizens are not eternally vigilant, holding government accountable for truth and lies, who knows where this might lead? Administrations might start wars based on lies or divulge classified information as a political weapon.

The density of scientific ignorance in South Carolina may have caused the state to implode into an educational black hole:
The theory of evolution does not and cannot explain so much about the universe that we know. For instance, when and how did water evolve? How does it happen that gravity can hold us to the Earth, and at the same time allow us to step up without any trouble? How did it happen that the Earth is spinning at the exact rate that keeps us from feeling that movement?
