This blog attempts to counter the lies, deceit, and misinformation coming out of The Discovery Institute. I take posts from the Evolution News and Views blog and systematically, but briefly, refute their arguments. I also try to include random thoughts on the subject. As with anything you ever read, you shouldn’t take my posts as the complete and total window to reality.
My real name is Jason Rall and I am a postdoctoral fellow working in the area of gene regulation. I received my PhD in 2007 in Microbiology. I do not have any specific training in evolutionary biology, except at the undergrad level. I started this blog because I feel increasingly under attack by anti-science groups like the Discovery Institute. Even thought my work does not specifically deal with evolution, I find that I use the ideas and tools brought by the Theory nearly every day.
