Hey everybody! Erich von Däniken is a loon! I've been following this guy's wacky career for a while now. If you're unfamiliar with his theories on how aliens have visited the Earth, you're in for a treat. If you are familiar with them, you can check out how he's still crazy after all these years. He's a wonderful, walking paradox. He uses ancient religious texts to "prove" his theories then chides religious figures for interpreting them in their own ways. It's like watching blind people fight.
Emily always does a great job of capturing what it's like for parents of autistic kids. Here's an example.
Alan Boyle wrote an excellent article about science in the Obama era. He's got high hopes for the next president and I share them. As long as he doesn't make RFK Jr. the head of the EPA, that is.
On a related note, a bunch of scientists are all up in Obama's grill saying "Appoint a science advisor! Now!" I kinda agree.
