I Dominate Google Again! (almost)

31 03 2009

I was having a little breakfast for dinner and it occurred to me that I might have another “Super Jesus Domination of the Google”™ waiting out there for me.  I had to check immediately.

So I anxiously Google “Bible Bacon” and I anticipate the triumphant warmth to wash over me as I await to bask in the glory of my victor… WHAAA?!

#2   !?!?!

I am #2.  The first loser.  For the millions of people who daily Google “Bible Bacon” they will see “Francis Bacon and the James 1st Bible” first.  Oh the humiliation is almost more than I can bear.  Oh sure I get #1 for “Family Bible Bacon” but that seems little more than a plodding hollow victory.

Damn…so close!  How is it I can inadvertently own “clusterfuck to the poor house” (2 places above the Daily Show itself) but get a lousy second with crispy pork on a fresh Gideon?  I ask ya, what does a heathen have to do to get a #1 rating for Bible Bacon these days?

I Dominate Google!

Well at least I’m the #1 search result if you Google “clusterfuck to the poor house”.  I know, I can’t figure that one out either.

I feel somehow honored.  Do I get a Google mug or something?

Fear my massive Google powers!

Fear my massive Google powers!

That’s some kind of milestone I guess. Thanks to everyone for playing, I’m going to retire now while I’m at the top.

Texas BOE Introduces Punctuated De-Evolution

31 03 2009

On Friday the (don’t mess with) Texas Board of Edukashen…made a mess of Texas.  Board chair and dentist Don McLeroy and his six fundamentalist toadies managed to put another log on the fire they hope to someday burn the witch of evolution on.

In what must be a complete embarrassment to those Texans with even a passing understanding of science, the board managed to add loopholes to the Science and Biology standards to make it easy for creationist hacks to fill science textbooks with half truths and unmerited doubt.  This, despite a petition from 54 scientific and educational societies urging against any language that would misrepresent or undermine the accurate teaching of evolution.

While the creationist preferred attack phrase “strengths and weaknesses” was rejected, other artificial doubt inspiring language was introduced where no legitimate doubt currently exists.  Language such as “is thought to” or “proposed transitional fossils” has been added to intentionally misrepresent established evolutionary concepts to make them seem uncertain.

The new biology standard now includes the debunked creationist ideas that “sudden appearance” and “stasis” in the fossil record somehow disprove evolution.  The new standard also overtly implies doubt by directing students to “analyze and evaluate the sufficiency of scientific explanations concerning any data of sudden appearance, stasis and the sequential nature of groups in the fossil records.”

As dentist Don exclaimed “Somebody’s got to stand up to experts!”

Yeah, because we wouldn’t want people who actually know what they’re talking about teaching our kids would we now?

I guess there's a reason for this

I guess there's a good reason for this, huh?
