Treacherous swine

I’ve been distracted this morning — I had to put down a rebellion. Various bacteria have been staging a revolt and trying to bolt out of the confines of my gut by cunningly fleeing into the sewers; not cunningly enough, though, as I’ve dealt with the traitors by sending great chasers of hydrochloric acid after …

Myers to enter church, then go bats

Reminder: I’m going to be in Austin this weekend. On Saturday, I’m going to be giving a lecture on bat evolution (in a church!) followed by the always awesome bat cruise. One and a half million bats will darken the twilight skies, while a mob of atheists cheer them on. How can you miss this?

Brain dead

You know what, guys? I’m really worn out. Wednesdays I’ve just got back-to-back-to-back teaching — I talk and coax students into talking for about 3 hours straight — and I’m planning to vegetate for a while. Maybe a glass of wine and a really bad movie, and then early to bed. You don’t need me …

On WFMU tonight

At 6pm Eastern (in about 2 hours), I’ll be getting interviewed on WFMU radio. It’s a call-in show, so feel free to ask intelligent questions. Well, that was fun, but I fear I may not have sold many books. I got the impression it was a very liberal audience that wasn’t quite with reality, so …

Oh, hi, blog

20130908-174419.jpg

I didn’t forget you. I got into Washington DC late last night, had a flavulous meal with Melody and Simon, slept, had a pleasant and interesting conversation with some ex-Muslims, had brunch with some local CFI people, gave a talk or something, signed a whole bunch of books, took a long cab ride to Dulles, …

Bat travel in three bat weeks!

Tomorrow I’m heading off to Washington DC to talk happily atheistically, but later this month on the 28th I’ll be in Austin, Texas for their world-renowned bat cruise (will it be on a bat-boat with bat-beer and bat-people? Will we also fight crime? I hope so). I’m also doing a talk on Bat Evolution for …

A weekend in DC

I’m flitting off to Washington DC on Saturday to spend some time being a Happy Atheist on Sunday. Come on by, I’ll talk a bit, I’ll read a bit, I’ll answer questions for a bit.

That kid was so lucky

This webcomic was just too sad, and it reminded me of my childhood a little bit. Only it wasn’t my father, but my grandfather. And he’d drive me over to the Eagles Club and tell me to wait there or play on the sidewalk while he had a few drinks. But he never gave me …

Christ-centered and cross-focused

Sorry about the earlier confusion, but it turns out the interview on Lutheran talk radio this morning was recorded and broadcast in the afternoon. But you can listen to the archive now. They seemed nice. I hope they didn’t pull a Ray Comfort on me; let me know if the recording has me praising Jesus …

OMG, it’s sinking in

Calendars are abstractions I ignore until I actually slam into the events listed in them. My teaching schedule has back-to-back lectures on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Today with that radio interview, I have been talking non-stop for three hours. And on Wednesdays, I have lab immediately after my last class. This isn’t hump day, it’s splat-face-first-into-a-brick-wall …
