No April Fool joke over at the ever-serious Virtual Stoa, I’m afraid. (I did enjoy reading about Peter Mandelson becoming chairman of the BBC in the Guardian, especially for his suggestion that the Today programme could be broadcast in a much earlier slot, so that people could get some exercise at the time it’s currently on.)
But instead here’s a link to a post on the excellent new groupblog The Panda’s Thumb. The blog has been set up as part of the propaganda effort against Creationists, advocates of Intelligent Design, and others who want to replace science education with nonsense; the particular post documents some of the extraordinary credulity — some of it 1 April-related — of these perennial (and pernicious) fools. Good work, chaps.
