There were all these carnival notices clattering around in my mailbox from last week, and they all got lost in the chaos for a while, but here they are, a bit late.
Would you consider this kind of stuff appeaser tactics?
Because as much as I stand against religion, when I’m in a political science class debating evolution/creationism and there are 40 very religious students all against me, I find people like Ken Miller mighty useful.
Hey, PZ – thanks for mentioning the Humanist Symposium! We’ve only just gotten it off the ground, but I think it’s going to go places. 🙂
I’m not sure if P-Zed has linked to this video of gorgeous cepahlopods and other deep see creatures. I understand he’s been all over the place lately, but this one is not to be missed. Or seen only once.
Need something to do on National Day of Reason?

Defend Dr. Dobson
(Excerpt from Doonesbury cartoon of April 15)
The guy on the other end of the phone is James Dobson, founder of Focus on The Family.
You can help Defend Dr. Dobson Against Doonesbury Lies.
