    Our Story So Far: The story line, if you have not had time to follow the previous 782 or so entries (!) is my slow realization that earth is being invaded by left handed DNA people ...
    NOTE: I am currently NOT adding entries with images - too much else to do!! Please enjoy a visit to my web site and read my papers.

  1. The Creationist Community's Photos includes a Left Handed DNA. If real scientists can publish an incorrect image in major scientific journals, then this is impetus to those who use science all the time but deny its results to keep up! binoculars First reported on 2013 Feb 24, new as of 2013 Feb 24 (Thanks to John S. Garavelli for pointing this one out!)

  2. InViVo Communications illustrates the invasion of Left Handed DNA in lovely images. You can wait for it to cycle through to the image or you can look at it directly. binoculars First reported on 2013 Feb 27, new as of 2013 Feb 27 (Thanks to Steve Shane, shane_steve at hotmail.com for pointing this one out!)

  4. The new book Denying Science: Conspiracy Theories, Media Distortions, and the War Against Reality Book propagates the myth that DNA is left handed. Priceless!

For your first visit to the Left Handed Hall of Fame page I suggest that you follow the story over all of the years. After that you can look at each year individually from the table below. Note: just because a year has gone by does not mean we haven't found more examples for that year!

1997 and 1998 were bumper crop years
and 1999 beat them more than 2 fold. 2000 was a record year, thanks to help from friends around the world (60 of the 97 cases, 63%!). 2001 exceeded even that record! 2002 was lower - are we making headway?
