Whore-off: Here's a meme picked up by Pharyngula. PZ is scratching his head trying to figure out why he rated a 25% over Majikthise's 6%. I got a 61%, so there! Actually, the difference may have to do with whether you use your blog's URL or its name. When I use the name, I only get 9%, and Pharyngula gets 5%. "majikthise.typepad.com," however, gets... hmmm... only 6%. There's an explanation for how these numbers are calculated, but what they say about our blogs, I don't know.

Roundups within roundups: There's been so much good stuff in response to the Dover ruling that I ended up not linking to any of it. Evolutionblog, however, has a nice roundup, which I choose to include in this round up. I like his quote from Billy Dembski:
"I think the big lesson is, let's go to work and really develop this theory and not try to win this in the court of public opinion," Dr. Dembski said. "The burden is on us to produce."I think they're seeing the light.
Interestingly, Evolutionblog's roundup links to further roundups, including one that in turn links to this one, which is perhaps the best, and includes a section on juicy bits from the text of the ruling.
