PZ has a new blog – but Pharyngula remains


The news is out … PZ has a new blog … Don’t Panic, Pharyngula is not going away. You will get the full Pharyngula blog on freethoughtblogs.com along with other great blogs, it is the scienceblogs host that will get a subset and only have science and anti-creationism. He writes in Google+ …

The news is leaking out fast. Yes, we have a new blog network, http://freethoughtblogs.com, opening for business on Monday. We’ve got a good starting lineup, and will also be adding +Greta Christina and +Jen McCreight and some others once we shake out the bugs. We’ll also consider adding a few other good blogs later — ask me or +Ed Brayton once the dust settles — but our goal is quality, not to build a massively huge network.

My plan is to post the current full content of Pharyngula on the new site. I will still be maintaining my relationship with Scienceblogs and National Geographic, but only select content will appear there: that is, science, anti-creationism, that sort of thing…the openly anti-religious material will be on FtB only. So if you’re a Christian, you’ll now be able to read Sb Pharyngula without crying (but don’t fool yourself, I’ll still be despising your foolish belief system); if you’re a teacher, you’ll be able to tell your students to read Sb Pharyngula without fearing the wrath of the PTA.

For now, the best URL to get to the site is http://Pharyngula.org. It currently redirects to Sb Pharyngula, but I’ll change it to point to FtB Pharyngula once it goes online.

Its not up yet, you just get the “Maintenance Mode” wordpress banner at the moment, but it looks like the shop opens tomorrow.
