New, improved Hovind Scale Calculator

May 22, 2008

This is unspeakably awesome. A fellow (fellowess?) named alltruism has built an online Hovind Factor Calculator. Verily, ’tis a weapon that ’twill strike fear into the hearts of the foes of science.

It’s great. A large indicator updates the HF value automatically as you adjust the figures. I have not praise enough.

This should make it easier

May 14, 2008

The venerable and mighty Calilasseia of RichardDawkins.net forum fame has forged a powerful tool in the war on creationism: a spreadsheet that allows quick calculation of Hovind Factors. One simply has to open the spreadsheet, press ALT+F8, click Run, and choose the appropriate options in the dropdown menus. I’ve included a screenshot of the macro to give you all a taste.

I’m hosting the spreadsheet on Media Fire, so please let me know if you have any trouble getting or using it! I personally will be using it in all my Hovind Factor calculations from now on.
