Lysenko Rising

This is posted on a number of blogs, but it is critical that as many people as possible know the unfuckingbelieveable degree to which science is being subjected to ideological and religious pressure by the Bush regime. The White House is pressuring NASA employees to always refer to the big bang as a theory, because the big bang is "not proven fact; it is opinion."

Go read Bad Astronomy's rant on this. There is more at Pharyngula here and here.

First they came for evolution...

Why the fuck are we taking Stalinist science as our national model.

UPDATE 2/8: The apparatchik at NASA responsible for this has been fired. Turns out he lied about having a college degree.
