Have some money to burn? Don’t get enough creationist readings on teh intraweb? How about getting a Master’s Degree in “Creation Science?” After all, it’s academically rigorous:
Each MS candidate is required to take six science education courses, three science courses and two electives. Applicants must already possess a bachelor’s degree in a field of science or in science education. All 11 courses will be offered online.
Each online course approaches the content the same way ICR’s scientists approach the study of origins: if an idea, scientific or otherwise, is contrary to God’s Word, it is false.
coturnix highlights a new blog devoted to “sexy scientists.” All I have to say is–can it top the hotties that are already members of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists?
This is too good to be lost in the comments. Letterman’s Top Ten list for April 17th was “Top Ten Features Of President Bush’s Bird Flu Pandemic Plan.” The list is below the fold.

Regular readers have probably noticed I rarely do quizzes. I’m just lame like that. But this one was a bit too perfect for this site: What disease are you? My results after the jump.

Seems Janet has been a bit under the weather…and has taken to haiku to describe her ailments. I think this should be the new format for journal case reports.
In other news, I’m heading off to my son’s preschool class later this morning to give a talk on germs and hand-washing (and a bit about being a scientist in general, since they’re discussing careers and community helpers this month), so blogging will be light today. Tomorrow I’m giving a talk out of town in the evening that I still have to polish a bit, but I have a few things in the hopper to keep you busy until I’m back up to speed on Wednesday.
…so says scientist.
Rare conditions could have conspired to create hard-to-see ice on the Sea of Galilee that a person could have walked on back when Jesus is said to have walked on water, a scientist said today.
The results suggest temperatures dropped to 25 degrees Fahrenheit (-4 degrees Celsius) during one of the two cold periods 2,500 -1,500 years ago for up to two days, the same decades during which Jesus lived.
With such conditions, a floating patch of ice could develop above the plumes resulting from the salty springs along the lake’s western shore in Tabgha. Tabgha is the town where many archeological findings related to Jesus have been found.

So, PZ was apparently collecting Jesus pictures or something. (Yeah, I’m late to the game–blame it on Atlanta). I’ve had this one on my camera for awhile and keep meaning to upload it: guess this is as good as a time as any. From my very own parents’ house (that used to creep me out when I was a child): the Jesus vs. Devil door.

And I thought my spring break trips as an undergrad were dull…
Phew! Good to know we have a strong terrorist deterrent here. Seen just outside of Iowa City:
