CoE #19 call for submissions

The 19th edition of CoE is going to be hosted at Observations of a Nerd, but so far we only have a handful of submissions. There is still time to get one (good) or two (better) in before January 1st, but don't let the holydays (be they a celebration of Kwanzaa, Yuletide, Hannukah, Winter Solstice, etc.) get in the way!

As usual you can submit using the form at Blog Carnival, which will send your submission directly into Christie's inbox.

Your posts can be specifically related to current science concerning evolution, opinions, or dealing with whatever current anti-evolution attacks you find in the media or world. Really, anything related to evolution, whether direct or tangential, is fair game. Your inclusion in to the carnival is up to the current host.

We also need new volunteers to host the carnival starting February. As this is an immensely popular job, I'd like to give the chance to those who have submitted to the carnival before, but hasn't hosted themselves. Any takers? Please email me at with the subject 'CoE hosting' if you're interested.

Carnival of Evolution #18 - Biochemical Soul

First off - big news here at the Carnival. As you can see, my edition is late again. I can't seem to find the time to keep up online anymore (thanks alot starfish gene cloning). Thus it is with both disappointment and excitement that I am turning over administration of this carnival to Bjørn Østman of Pleiotropy. Bjørn has been a constant contributor to the CoE, and in his own last edition, he really rallied the troops and put out a great edition. He has shown such a constant passion for the subject that I have every confidence that the Carnival of Evolution will be much better in his hands than my own.

Now: Go read the latest crop of evolutionary writings in the Carnival of Evolution #18!

CoE#19 will be hosted by the always superb and funny writer (and my friend) Christie Lynn at Observations of a Nerd.

For now, you can still submit your posts using our carnival submission form. This form may change – but you can always find out submissions information at
