I’m converting to Pastafarianism

I got a chuckle out of this.

Anyone who looks to Kent Hovind as the intellectual juggernaut of Creationism is obviously about as smart as a bag of hammers. I mean really, be serious. Even that bastion of creationist confusion, Answers in Genesis has noted that many of Hovind’s arguments are simply untenable.

Oh, and incidently, Kent Hovind doesn’t believe in Intelligent Design either, at least the kind that the The Discovery Institute is trying to claim is scientific (albeit with a wink and a nod).

Baby comes with brain repair kit for mum

New Scientist is running an article which suggests that stray stem cells from a growing fetus may colonize in the mother and repair damage to the mother’s brain.

This seems only fair, given the amount of brain damage that a child will inflict on his or her parents over their lifetime. 🙂

It is all very tentative research, but pretty interesting nonetheless.
