Out to Sea

I’ve kinda missed hurricane blogging–even though you readers seem to enjoy fights over “intelligent design” much more. In any case, here are hurricanes Gordon and Helene, drifting harmlessly out to sea (though Helene might still have a few surprises in store). In general, it’s been that kind of year, folks. All the really dramatic hurricane…

Off to Lovely Bellingham, WA

Hoping to see some Bald Eagles as I make the 80 plus mile drive from Seattle up to Bellingham today, in order to deliver this talk: Saturday, September 16 7:30 PM-9:00 PM Village Books 1200 Eleventh Street Bellingham, WA 98225 I’m feeling a bit under the weather–to much masquerading about–but as long as I’ve got…

ForaTV Interview

ForaTV was there filming my very well attended talk in Mountain View, CA, earlier this week, and you can watch the whole event through this link (scroll down). I cannot find a direct link to the program, unfortunately. On the left bar, under “Sights and Sounds,” I’m also building a list of links to my…

The DI Rebuttal

Okay, the “rebuttal” (PDF) of my work from the Discovery Institute went online early today. So I have at least gotten to peruse it briefly. I can’t allege that I was “surprised” by it, though the timing of its release remains curious. Anyway, you can peruse the document yourself, here, and compare it with my…

Responding to the DI

The Discovery Institute is apparently going to come out with a report tomorrow outlining 14 “false facts” in my book. I hope that the first I hear about the contents of this report is not on the air with Michael Medved. We’ll see.

Man, I just arrived in Seattle and had scarcely gotten a nap in when I woke up to find this: SEATTLE — In his book The Republican War on Science, Chris Mooney declares war on intelligent design, calling it a “reactionary crusade” promoted by “[s]cience abusers.” Discovery Institute now responds to Mooney’s war on intelligent…

Ironies, Ironies

My main thought on departing Portland this morning is, jeez, I’ll be back in like three days.

Today in Seattle

I’m about to head to the Portland airport now…Seattle next. Today only contains one event, no radio bookings: Thursday, September 14 6:00 PM-7:30 PM Elliott Bay Books 101 South Main Street Seattle, WA 98104

Some Love From Powell’s

I’ve just found an online interview that I did with the Portland-based bookstore Powell’s, where I’ll also be appearing tonight. For some reason I hadn’t tracked this down before now. You can read it here. Excerpt:

You Might Think I’m Crazy…

Okay, I’m readying myself for the criticisms and hate mail….I have agreed to debate Jonathan Wells again, this time for an hour. And it’s going to be on a conservative show: The Michael Medved Show out of Seattle. We’re doing it in studio, from 1 to 2 pm PT, on Friday. Okay, now’s your chance…
