Attention Nutmeggers

If you live in the New Haven area, I hope you’ll consider joining me tomorrow at 5 pm for a talk at the Yale Medical School about my book Soul Made Flesh.

The talk will be at 5 pm, Thursday October 6, in the Beaumont Room at the Sterling Hall of Medicine, 333 Cedar Street. It is free and open to the public. If you need directions, here’s a map.

I can promise lots of cool images to accompany my talk, of stuff like excorcisms, miraculous resurrections of murderers, and alchemy. All the normal things you’d expect from a seventeenth-century powerpoint.

    I sure hope that someday you can bring that show to the Minneapolis area–I’m about halfway through “Soul Made Flesh,” and it is fantastic. Ordinarily history leaves me a little cold, but you have really painted some symphathetic portraits of fascinating people that have just gripped me. I thought “At the Water’s Edge” would always be my favorite of the Zimmer oeuvre, but we have a contender here. Can’t wait for your next book. As long as lucid science popularizers like you and Dawkins and PZ Meyers and others exist, the attempt by folks like Dembski and Behe to drag us back into the dark will at least be impeded. Rock on.

    Can’t make it to New Haven today but hope to catch you in Westport on the 25th. A different topic, but I hope you’ll sign my copy of Soul Made Flesh. I’m reading it now, and loving it.

    You want to come to Norman, Oklahoma and give a talk on evolution at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History……you want to come to Norman, Oklahoma and give a talk on evolution at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History……

    As far as I can tell, the name comes from a long tradition of fraud.
