I know none of you heard this because you were sleeping or at church or whatever, but for breakfast, I went down to the south (way south) side of town and appeared on Mike Haubrich’s show on Atheist Talk Radio, where I was interviewed by artist and science aficionado Lynn Fellman. Lynn did an excellent job with the interview, which was about my research in human evolution and stuff.
After the radio show, I picked up Julia and we headed over to Columbia Park for the Minnesota Atheists and Huminists Free-thought picnic. That was pretty much what you’d expect …. we sacrificed two goats and some small children we picked up at a local church daycare. Wait, only kidding. These are the MINNESOTA atheists, so they are really very nice, almost too nice .. wouldn’t’ even disturb, say, the likes of Matt Nisbet.
We sat at the Pseudonymous Bloggers table, and I snapped a few pictures with my cell phone camera. I won’t say who these bloggers are, but you can meet them yourself by visiting any one of several web sites.
Actually, it was kind of strange. I had the distinct impression of a deep undercurrent of suspicion between the atheists and the humanists….
OK, again, only kidding. The picnic was a laid-back affair with interesting conversation about a wide range of topics. The weather was great, there was an interesting band, and the food was good. Money and/or food was also gathered for the local food shelter.
But then, as we were sitting there at the Pseudonymous Bloggers table, someone noticed something strange. Among the many marks and nicks and scuffs on the old table’s surface, suddenly visible (once you knew what to look for) was an unmistakable image. Something I had once seen before … on a banana. There, staring at us from the table’s surface was none other than…
JEBUS!!! Welcome to the picnic!
