Top 10 Cryptozoology Stories of 2009?

Cryptomundo has a list of the top 10 cryptozoology stories of this past year. Funny how a good chunk of the stories are stories about good science. Seems like they think mixing the good with the bad makes the idea of Bigfoot look much more plausible, when actually it will probably throw the good science into doubt more than anything.

Most of the stories are about new species being discovered/rediscovered or found in places that are unexpected. I guess this is meant to make the idea of finding one of the traditional mysterious beasts such as Bigfoot or Nessie seem likely. But the major difference is that we see more than a fuzzy shaky video image of coelacanths.

2012 at the Cincinnati Observatory

Do you or someone you know think that the world will end in 2012 because the Mayans aid so? Well then you should attend this class at the Cincinnati Observatory. The lectures at the Observatory are really first class, I don't get to enough of them. This one ought to be fun as well as educational.

Ten Commandments Followup

A follow up to this post. Lockland has taken down the display, which is probably the right thing to do. If you put up a display like this it opens the door for any and all religious displays to be put up.
