New Bostonist: The Boston Globe Mixes Science & Religion

The Boston Globe has discontinued its weekly Science & Health section. In its place, we get an uncritical article by a Reuters Religion Editor about the Templeton Prize. Find out more in my latest Bostonist post.


Also, the Boston Phoenix just published a really fabulous article all about the Boston Skeptics! That issue is in news boxes today, or you can read it online (along with a fun Boston Cream Pi Fight slideshow) here.


The Boston Cream Pi Fight was also featured in this article in The Huntington News. Neato!

  1. Thanks for linking to my blag from Bostonist. With all this extra traffic, I might be able to indulge my “eating” habit this month.

    Clicking links from your Bostonist post, I was eventually led to this announcement that Fred “God Hates Exactly the People I Hate” Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Band will be protesting in Cambridge tomorrow. Funnily enough, if I’m reading the Interrunes aright, they’ll be on just the road I take walking to work, at just the time I might be doing so. Odd’s life, isn’t it?

  2. I’ve got my father’s old reporter notebook and the flipcam which SEED magazine gave me as Millionth Comment Party swag, and I’m cruising the town to fill my laptop bag with a multicoloured galaxy of uppers, laughers and screamers, so I’ll be ready to go out there and cover the story. Maybe I’ll see you there.
