Edge has still another pean to Dawkins. The year is 2016 and we are still dominated by Dawkins superidiocy. We have taken to citing two articles per day from the Discovery Institute because they have consistently better discussion of the problems with evolutionary theory (You have to ignore the religion, climate change muddle, and perils of ID arguments). Not a single blog from science can compete with this simple reality. Certainly not Edge.
I think that science education is missing at least one major marble, perhaps many more. Modern Big Science has been defeated by the evolution question.
Is Brockman a complete idiot? Let me know what you find out.
