Boston Skeptics: I’m Speaking Tomorrow

Don’t forget: I’m speaking tommorow at the Boston Skeptics meeting about how we should defend evolution and attack creationism. My title of my talk is “Defending Evolution the Right Way: As a Fundamental Part of Biology and Biomedicine, Not as a Cultural Icon.” If you don’t go, you’ll miss slides like this:

How could you not want to go?

    You may want to include more unicorns to placate Rebecca.

    Please, please record this and youtube it or make me buy a DVD so that those of us in the, uhhh, far reaches of existence can benefit from what you have to say. Your topic is quite relevant to many of my activities, and I’d love to be able to hear your talk.

    Joshua: unicorns would be rad, but I must say that LOLboars (?) are nearly as great! I am tingling with excitement.

    I actually am a unicorn, so we should be all set on that front.

    I second the request for your presentation materials (and perhaps audio?) to be available to those who could not attend.

    With all the hoopla over “Expelled” last week, I’ve been going into nearly-apopleptic fits trying to answer this very question about how best to defend evolution. Especially with people who may not have the best science literacy.

    I, further, would like to see your presentation. I’m sorry but I am not near Boston. Do you think you could put it on youtube?
