I like Smolin's and Greene's bickering back and forth that they've been doing in their books (Elegant Universe (Greene), Three Roads to Quantum Gravity (Smolin), and Fabric of the Cosmos (Greene)). I don't know if Smolin has fired back yet.
This probably counts. (More extended description here.)
I'll have to grab that when it comes out. Physicists arguing about things that they can't prove amuses me, and it's interesting to boot.
It doesn't amuse me. Maybe it used to back in the 80's, but now it just pisses me off. I hate it when the big bang people get all singular on the oscilatory, quasi-steady statists.
What's weird about the Great Turtle?
The problem is that Occam's razor suggests fewer turtles than it would actually take to make it all the way down.
Yes, but the microwave background pattern kinda looks like turtle shell.
i'm disappointed turtles weren't mentioned once.
At least call it by name: A'Tuin.
They also left out the elephants.
