To New York Via Pittsburgh!

EvolutionBlog will be going dark for the next two weeks or so. I will be leaving my cozy digs in Harrisonburg to enjoy some serious wandering. First is a drive up to Pittsburgh for the International Conference of Creationism. How could I pass that up? Then I will explore the fine points of the Pennsylvania Turnpike as I shoot on over to visit the ‘rents in my New Jersey office. There follows a quick train ride up to New York for the big blogger meet-up. I will also be sure to take care of the two most important things in any trip to New York: The visit to big bro over in Brooklyn, and the procurement of a most excellent black and white cookie from The Donut Pub. Looks like I’ll have plenty of blog fodder when I return!

    You’re making me very sad that I won’t be able to go to New York next weekend. . . but I won’t be able to go to New York next weekend.

    Hey, wave to me as you drive by the King of Prussia interchange on the turnpike, OK? :-)

    I’m insanely jealous of you for getting to go to the bloggers’ party. As for the Creotards’(TM) Conference, you’ve got a far stronger stomach than I do. I’m looking forward to your report on what new piles of Hot Steaming $#!+(TM) the Creotards(TM) have cooked up lately.

    Enjoy the trip, say hi to your family, and have a cookie for me too!

    @ Tegumai Bopsulai:

    They say there’s no fanatic like a convert, and they’re right. :-\

    You have to report on these topics from the ICC:

    � Relativistic String Dynamics Support Biblical Creationism
    � The Origin of the Elements
    � Electrodynamic Origin of the Force of Gravity

    Should be a hoot!

    Some guy is writing favourably about the conference.

    He’s mentioned that
    A great deal of peer review papers will be presented (40+) dealing with the debunking of evolution. One in particular will be quite interesting called: Snake Hybridization: A Case for Intrabaraminic Diversity.”

    He also has a link to an ICR article about that. Any chance you could catch that particular talk, or is there something else there that you fancy?

    themadlolscientist -

    Thanks for the kind words.

    jimvj –

    Alas, I didn’t go to any of those talks. For most of the day there were four (!!) parallel sessions to choose from. On the other hand, I have a CD of the conference proceedings (!!) so perhaps I’ll have a look.

    Reynold –

    I’m afraid I missed the snake talk as well. I would have to check my notes to tell you what I found more enthralling than that!

    To New York Via Pittsburgh!

    Nice try, but it doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as
    To Infinity and Beyond!

    A great deal of peer review papers will be presented (40+)

    “Gosh guys, let’s get together and call ourselves “peers,” amd review each other’s papers!”

    Pittsburgh and New York! My two favorite US cities, in that order, oddly enough. Get to Kelly’s bar in Pittsburgh for some excellent cheap beer.

    If y’all need some reading, head over to Cambridge’s blog (which I edit) for weekly posts of Darwin’s letters. I’ve found some amusing ones in the last few weeks.
