Tomorrow at Book People here in Austin, the fine folks of CFI-Austin will be helping the creationists celebrate Earth’s birthday! As we all know, creationism proves the Earth was magicafully wished into being by God on October 23, 4004 BC. So in celebration of this momentous occasion, let there be cake, let there be cookies, let there be punch, and let there be talks by prominent UT scientists! Uh…okay, that last bit might throw a little bit of cold water on the creationists’ view of things. But who says that getting a real education can’t be fun? Come one, come all. Festivites run from 1:00-3:30 pm.
Marginally more awesome than this is that I’ll be ducking out of the party early to be a guest on the Atheist Experience TV show for the first time in ages. This is all part and parcel of the show’s 10th Anniversary celebrations, the main program for which takes place next Sunday with a full round-table featuring every host and co-host the show’s ever had. Thing is, I can’t make it next Sunday, so they’re putting me on tomorrow instead. Tune in and call up. 3:00 pm on channel 10, as usual.
