Just a note of explanation for those who pay attention to the Category labels. An occasional occurrence on this blog will be essays that pertain to Intelligent Design. Some of these will be re-posts of essays I have contributed to The Panda’s Thumb and to older discussion forums (such as the ARN and ISCID boards). Others will be newer contributions that will be cross-posted to The Panda’s Thumb. I do this for a number of reasons. This practice is homage in a way to the hobby that got me into the blogging business. It’s also acknowledgement that this hobby has caused me to become more knowledgeable about many subjects that have little to do with RNA. This has translated into some bona-fide research and discovery.
So enjoy the essays in this category.
