  1. Creationism Has Been Banned in All State-Funded Schools in the UK

    So maybe don't teach the controversy.

    Score one for science! New clauses added to the funding agreements for schools in the UK have banned creationism from being taught as fact in any schools that accept government funds -- even church schools.

  2. Climate Change Denial, Creationism, and Other Bad Science Don’t Deserve Equal Consideration in Science Journalism

    There. We said it.

    As part of The Mary Sue’s merge with Geekosystem, we’re going to be covering more science stories in the future. We thought it was worth mentioning up front that we won’t being giving equal weight to things like Creationism or climate change denial in our science coverage. Here’s why — they just don't deserve it.

  3. New Study Shows Human Faces Evolved for Punching

    I thought that's what God made pillows for?

    Your face? That wasn't made for smiling. Your hands? Not for holding! Research published today says our species has a more violent past than previously thought, to the extent that our ancestors' faces were made to be punched.

  4. Creation Museum Unveiling Dinosaur Fossil Evidence of Biblical Flood

    That's "evidence" in air quotes. Obviously.

    This Monday the Creation Museum in Kentucky will be revealing a fossil of Allosaurus fragilis that the institute claims is evidence of a Biblical flood. But c'mon, Ken Ham, how could Noah have forgotten to put dinosaurs on the ark? Dude packed mosquitoes. I think we should give him a little more credit.

  5. The Brain Scoop Is Here To Teach Us About The Biological Side Of Breastfeeding [Video]

    A Series of Fallopian Tubes

    Given that it's Mother's Day in the US, what could be more appropriate than a scientific discussion about breastfeeding? Granted, as the video notes, not all mothers breastfeed, and that's okay. But if you're interested in the biological history of human child-rearing, host Emily Graslie and her guest Dr. Robert Martin have got the intellectual nourishment you need.

  6. Creationists Upset Over Exclusion From Cosmos, Do They Have A Point?

    Where was my Jesus riding a dinosaur? Where, I ask you?

    It's probably inevitable that religious conservatives would eventually take offense at Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos. However, the most recent creationist complaint is just as surprising as it is contradictory.

  7. FOX Affiliate Cuts Evolution Reference in Cosmos

    Thou shalt not silence Neil!

    For a show as all-encompassing as Cosmos, it's surprising that the series' only reference to evolution so far lasted less than a minute. And if you live in Oklahoma City, Fox News affiliate KOKH-TV didn't even want you to see that.

  8. New Study Says Giant Ancient Sloths Were Aquatic

    Just when you though it was safe to get back in the water.

    Sometimes I resent evolution. A study published this week in the Proceedings of Royal Society B. claims that millions of years ago, sloths were six-feet long and spent most of their lives in the water. Thank you, survival of the fittest, for depriving me of a world full of underwater sloth rides and hypnotically slow games of beach volleyball.

  9. Missouri Nonsense Bill Would Require Schools to Alert Parents When Evolution Is Taught

    Science class. Warning: may contain science.

    Evolution is a theory supported by mountains of evidence that many religious people are just fine with, and most importantly, it's science, so no, there shouldn't be a parental notification requirement that it's being taught in science class. That should be assumed. That hasn't stopped a Missouri bill to alert parents to the teaching of science.

  10. Twitter Responds to Our Friend Bill Nye’s #CreationDebate With Creationist Ken Ham

    Double points to Nye for keeping a straight face the whole time.

    Last night Our Friend Bill Nye debated the issue of whether Creationism is a viable model for teaching the origins of the Universe against creationist Ken Ham. (No. No it is not. Stop saying that it is because it is not.) Obviously, Twitter had some thoughts on the debate. Here are some of our favorite comments.
