Fresh from the clogged tubes of teh intarwubs…

  1. Add a warning to your page telling users to upgrade from IE6

    "Do your part to help phase out Internet Explorer 6 forever by adding the warning in the image below to your site. It tells visitors using Internet Explorer 6 or an older browser that they need to upgrade to the current version right now." Worth trying; it might work, or at least help.

  2. How to spot a hidden religious agenda

    "When you come across the terms "Darwinism" or "Darwinists", take heed. True scientists rarely use these terms, and instead opt for "evolution" and "biologists", respectively. When evolution is described as a "blind, random, undirected process", be warned. While genetic mutations may be random, natural selection is not. When cells are described as "astonishingly complex molecular machines", it is generally by breathless supporters of ID who take the metaphor literally and assume that such a "machine" requires an "engineer". If an author wishes for "academic freedom", it is usually ID code for "the acceptance of creationism"."
