St. Blog's favorite mollecular biologist, Chad, of Cacoethes Scribendi fame, has decided to strike out on his own. Normally you don't find me selling scientists, since the level at which science and I stop understanding one another is, with the exception of some
biology, rather low (stop understanding in a "what in tarnation are you talking about" sense, not an ID vs. Evolution flamewar sense, although some scientists invite that kind of stuff -- cf, ice floes and Jesus).
But we need people like Chad to write about this stuff, because there are a lot of important things happening in the world of science, and most of us can't tell a hydrogenase from golgi body. And besides, Chad's a good writer and he links here. So go read On the Silent Planet
(at least, go read it next week when he comes back from his Lenten hiatus).File Under: Miscellany
