I’m giving a talk on “Darwin and Design” at a banquet in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday. It will be fun, and it better be, because you know what I’m giving up? Valentine’s Day with the Trophy Wife! I may have to take her out to a movie or something on Friday.
There’s something else I’ll have to miss, again: the Creation Science Fair in Minneapolis will be taking place this weekend. I’ve seen enough photos to know that it’s a rather sad event, though — poor kids misled into doing weak science backed up by silly bible verses. I do get back reasonably early on Sunday, but the first thing I have to get to is…
The Darwin Year Panel Discussion in St Paul! This is open to the public, so if you’re looking for something smart to do on Sunday afternoon, come on out.
2009 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origins of Species. In honor of this, we have assembled a distinguished panel of scientists to give us their thoughts on evolution, creationism, and Darwin. The panelists are: PZ Myers, Randy Moore, Greg Laden, Sehoya Cotner, and Jane Phillips.
The discussion will be moderated by Lynn Fellman. Lynn is a frequent science interviewer on our Atheists Talk radio program. She is also an independent artist and designer (FellmanStudio.com) who incorporates science into her work.
This event is free and open to the public.
