Everybody gets a Niche in the blogosphere. With me in the computer science Niche is Good Math, Bad Math by Mark Chu-Carroll. He blogs for two reasons:
- To ramble about the beauty of mathematics, and try to share enthusiasm for the subject.
- To track down the bozos who use bad math to lie, distort reality, and in general support bad arguments; demonstrate their errors and their dishonesty; and generally mock them.
The “bozos” are mostly christian creationists and he really isn’t nice to them. On the other hand he just points out factual and logical errors.
Way to go, Mark!
