I enjoy reading stories like this one, suggesting a close genetic link between chickens and T-Rexes, and this one, on the sequencing of the rhesus macague genome, and its implications for human evolution; still, I can't help wondering whether at some point in the not too distant future such stories will be under attack from fundamentalists--Muslim fundamentalists--for contradicting Islam. And I wonder whether the defense of them will be more vigorous than was the defense of the Danish prophet cartoons...
