Greg Graffin of Bad Religion has some news about his other career as a PhD-holding lecturer and professor in Evolutionary Biology. The musician will at Cornell University this fall, where he will be teaching Evolution alongside geneticist Richard Harrison. Graffin is coming home to Cornell having obtained his PhD in zoology there several years ago. He notes:

This is the first year of three that I am slated to help develop the course and lecture at Cornell. I only have to lecture on Tuesdays and Thursdays. That leaves plenty of time to head overseas on the weekends!

In addition, Greg is being honoured with a newly discovered fossilized bird named after him. According to the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society in London, paleontologists including Dr. Jingmai O'Connor, have discovered an ancient bird fossil in the Gansu Province of north-western China, and have named this important find Qiliania graffini in honor of the singer.

Bad Religion released The Dissent of Man in 2010.
