Update on the stick figure contest

Folks, I got word from Brandon Haught at Florida Citizens for Science that maybe I wasn’t perfectly clear when I announced the Stick Figure Science contest. It’s not meant to bash religion, but to point out a single flaw in some antiscience argument about evolution and illustrate it with stick figures. My example was from something I had already drawn last year, and happened to have a little bit more of a religious bent in the way I drew it. I should’ve chosen a clearer example, because they don’t want something that simply attacks religion. That’s not the point!

Just to be certain, here is Brandon’s blog post on this. I just want to make sure we’re all on the same page here. Thanks.
