ronys Implementation, not algorithm! (173 comments)

It's an implementation on specific hardware that was broken. Not the first time, nor the last. If the *algorithm* would have been broken, now *that* would have been news!

Mixed Outcome of Texas Textbook Vote

ronys Why Science Lost (646 comments)

Superficially, the decision sounds fine - of course we want students to analyze the scientific evidence! The problem is that the creationists are going to come back with a novel definition of 'scientific' evidence that treats Intelligent Design as a scientific hypothesis, and they're going to demand textbooks that include a treatment of all kinds of nonsensical 'theories'. ID is not scientific. It has no evidence in its favor (pointing out that we lack intermediate fossils showing the evolution of the lesser red-necked Argentinian swamp leech is not evidence that it was designed). But the Discovery Institute does have another bad textbook waiting in the wings for the next round of textbook-buying decisions in Texas.
