Birds: What you thought you knew about their evolution is ... wrong?
From both Science Daily and New Scientist comes the word that, in the words of New Scientist's Bob Holmes (June 26, 2008),
A new study – the largest analysis of birds to date using modern genetic methods – has turned up numerous surprising relationships that will force biologists to reevaluate much of what they thought they knew about avian evolution.
Those dastardly scientists -- being prepared to re-evaluate what they believed in light of new evidence. Bunch of sleazy douchebags, the lot of them, eh, Denyse?
And people wonder why there is an intelligent design controversy ...
Not really, Denyse. The world is full of hideously stupid people. No mystery there.
