Back when I updated my Blogroll the last time, I promised I’d continue to update it every once in a while, adding 5 blogs at a time to give all my favourite bloggers their own moment to shine. Well, the time has come, and here are the next 5 blogs:
Evolving in Kansas – http://evolvinginkansas.blogspot.com/
This blog is a good cross section of politics, science, and plenty of humour. Written, as should be apparent, by a “Kansas writer” (Kansasian? Kansasite?). The topics range from localish Kansas stuff to stories of national and international importance. It’s all interesting, though.
This is one of my favourite blogs. It’s written by Ben Goldacre, who writes the “Bad Science” column for the Guardian, a UK newspaper. The blog features his columns, along with “anything else [Ben] writes.” Goldacre thoroughly eviscerates all sorts of pseudoscience on the blog. Good times!
I realize this is the second blog I’m adding that involves Kansas. It’s a coincidence, I tell you! TfK is written by Joshua Rosenau, a graduate of the University of Kansas. The blog is mainly concerned with evolution and politics. Highly recommended.
This blog is written by John Hawks (unsurprisingly), an anthropologist at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. The blog covers a wide range of subjects relating to anthropology and evolution.
Written by Emile a paleontology student in Beirut. My all-time favourite post here was a particularly harsh critique of a creationist Chick tract. I remember a Church in my hometown that had these! Needless to say, the treatment of the subject was fair and sensitive.
