Jonah Goldwater of The Faster Times asks Is Stephen Strasburg the Pope of Washington. You can come to your own conclusion, but if you say “no”, you’re wrong.
Speaking of Stephens: Dr. Hawking recently said, “there is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, [and] science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works.” Of course, this pissed off that mosquito Bill Donohue. PZ Myers covers the story nicely. Here’s an excerpt:
The Catholic Church was a religion laced throughout the substrate of Western culture; everyone was Catholic (or alternatively, after the 16th century, some flavor of Protestant), and being anything else was not tenable because the Catholic Church would set you on fire.
Neutrinos are wiggly. Duh.
