Bill asked me to introduce myself, and to describe an idea that came to me recently.
I am a graduate student, working on philosophy of biology (at a university that shall remain nameless), nearing the dissertation stage.
I am sure that everyone knows about the odious “Darwin Awards.” I have been concerned about this phenomenon for some time, because they seem to be catching on with the broader public. I encounter references to them increasingly frequently among the mostly liberal crowd I hang out with. I guess this is not too surprising, as their cynicism is certainly in tune with the times and the culture.
