Doonesbury on creationism

Today’s Doonesbury is a hoot.  The man is, thank Ceiling Cat, fiercely pro-evolution.  Click to enlarge!

Bonus: I got Trudeau’s permission to reproduce his famous “antibiotic resistance/creationism” cartoon (click the link!) for a book review I did for Nature, and he autographed it for me!

    This theme has been running for about three days now, and it is a hoot. I just wish I had thought of starting a myFacts service!

    This is particularly good – I credit the comics for helping me learn to read (both English as a small kid and Swedish as a post-doc). Conclusion: Doonesbury will at least seed doubts re. creationism in a few young heads well before highschool biology (assuming they even get to evolution in HS biology).

    Oh man, that longer one on your book review page is really, really good and cutting on so many levels. Hail Trudeau!

      I laughed out loud. (I spell it out without caps so you know I really did.)

    The book review itself, at that link, is behind Nature’s paywall. Yech.

            Somehow, my brain was focused on some way to do it through WordPress… You’re right, though. It’s right there.

    Phthisiologist- the study of tuberculosis. What a great word! (See the stamp for Edward Trudeau).

    Trudeau has been my favorite for many years.
