Pharyngula podcast tomorrow

Remember! Tomorrow (Saturday) at 10am Central I’ll be opening up Google+ and setting up a public chat about those silly creationists. The resulting youtube video will be posted here, if you want to sleep in, or you can watch it streaming live, and even join in.

If you want to talk, come prepared with your favorite creationist foolishness…and also, your refutation of it.

(If you’re reading this shortly after I’ve posted it, you’re awake for it: it will be about this same time tomorrow. Or you can convert US Central time to your time zone.)

    After a long night of cat wrangling I’m looking forward to PZ smacking ddown some creationist absurdity.

    Well, cool! I have Google+, but haven’t played with it at all. This will be an excellent opportunity to both see how it works and be entertained in a completely lurking-in-the-background sort of way.

    Is there any chance you could highlight tips/resources for helping a creationist (more open-minded than most) realize the truth about evolution? She (my mother) has started Jerry Coyne’s book, but she has already said that she doesn’t expect this book to change her mind. Normally, I’d just give up (at least temporarily), but her views affect the things that my younger sisters learn, and that’s what really bothers me.

    I was going to watch this live.

    But noooooooooo, I have a baby shower that I have to attend and I don’t even want to go to it. *pout!*

    Try Richard Dawkins’ Greatest Show on Earth . A more accessible book for the general reader.

  6. 6

    I hope you can wrangle DDMFM and Jules into participating when they return from exhuming ‘spondyls.

    I’m having trouble converting the time. ‘US Central time’, doesn’t appear on the list. Help, please!

    Use USA – Minnesota – Minneapolis for the location. That should work.

    US Central is UTC-5 hours; that means the talk will be at 15:00 UTC.

    Now I just need to stay awake until 1am.

    Now I just need to stay awake until 1am.

    Me, too. I have trouble staying awake past 22:00.

    Oh well; looks like I won’t be watching it live after all. Sigh.

    Does it count if I give an example of creationist psychological or historical manipulations instead of a lie about the actual physical sciences?

  13. 13

    When you start the podcast could you post directions on how to find it? I’ve never used googlee+ before, it’s just kind of sat there since I got it.
