Today, I found out there’s a crying need for me to write several essays.
I had a chat with a reporter about antievolution today; I need to put together a basic set of links and text to point the media in the right direction.
An antievolutionist made a wholly unsupported statement about the statistics of belief among biologists; I need to look up the actual polling results that apply so that the response is not baseless like the original conjecture.
I found out that a misapprehension about Darwin is being propagated through an essay at the TalkOrigins Archive; I need to track down the origins of this modern myth and expose it as such.
Another antievolutionist who didn’t like the recent National Geographic article on evolution was spouting nonsense about dolphin biosonar in a web article; I need to thoroughly critique the resulting mess. It’s not that often that antievolution intersects with my dissertation research.
If this keeps up, 2005 is going to be a very busy year for me.
