Evolution v. Creation Watch: How Did Such a Frail, Intricate, and Gorgeous Thing Come into Existence in the First Place?
Skeptic magazine recently had a rather thorough (and I thought disturbing) article on the Large Hadron Collider and scientific opinion concerning its safety. Here’s a quote from the article: [I]n a recent version of the safety of the LHC posted … Continue reading
