Take the Dante's Inferno Hell Test


Take the Seven Deadly Sins Quiz

Ok, so the results of one test show I will be banished to the 5th level of hell. A completely different test says that wrath will be the sin that takes me down. Look at that! Independent verification. Sweet.

But wait! I scored very high for level 2 for me being so lustful and all. But by deadly sins I get a low on lustful. Hmm,this casts some doubt on the veracity of the wrath data. Maybe we need to do more testing.

The Truly Expelled: Victims of the Culture War

I found this to be an excellent post. Blake Stacey summarizes many examples of the most atrocious reasons why scientists need to maintain a strong presence in the debates surrounding science in this country. The writers of Expelled scream persecution of creationists intelligent design proponents, when the evidence suggests just the opposite. I could make the analogy to the tactics of the Brownshirts, but I would hate to break Godwin's Law so early on a Friday night.
