* Mississippi, Wisconsin, and Colorado Callers: Real Science Radio hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams members of the brightest audience in the country who were worked up about Ken Ham's debate with Bill Nye The Science Guy. Fun stuff!
* Bill Nye Heartbroken and Sickened: Creation Museum founder Ken Ham announced yesterday that a municipal bond offering has raised enough money to begin construction on the Ark Encounter project, estimated to cost about $73 million! The Associated Press reports that Bill Nye is, "heartbroken and sickened for the Commonwealth of Kentucky" because the full-sized ark construction project has received its necessary funding to proceed. For more details, see this Associated Press story, Noah's ark project in KY to move forward; Bill Nye upset about it.

* Ten Big Scientific Advances that Went Unused: A criticism of Ken was that regarding science he didn't take the offensive, and left unused powerful evidence like these ten enormously powerful advances in scientific discovery:
1. dinosaur soft tissue
2. short-lived carbon-14 everywhere it shouldn't be
3. the tree of life demolished by both genetic sequencing and out-of-sequence fossils
4. the fine tuning of the cosmos
5. red-shift evidence for a center to the universe
6. major discoveries that undermine the big bang
7. irreducible complexity
8. evidence of design everywhere in life
9. layered strata from Mount St. Helens
10. Grand Canyon nautiloids and a clear statement of its flat gaps!
