Free Beer and John West tonight

A reminder: tonight is the creationist schlockfest at the University of Minnesota. Smart people will meet at the Campus Club, on the fourth floor of the Coffman Union, between 5:30 and 6:45, for pre-seminar preparation.

See you there!

    The purpose of Close Up is to get students interested indoctrinated in issues of the day bullshit, and to become active participants in our democracy forming a theocracy.

    there, that’s more like it.

    He also denied that he ever heard Jonathan Wells say that HIV doesn’t cause AIDS

    IOW, he lied.

    so what else is new?

    Did anyone attend Dennett’s debate?

    not me, but if you go to D’souza’s website, he was “pre-crowing” about the arguments he planned to use.

    the funny thing is, all the commentary on his own blog basically shredded his idiot arguments before he left for the debate.

    I wonder if he bothered to read any of them?

    Aim carefully and remember that there are two of them.

    better yet, aim high and you only have to shoot once.

    Well, West ducked my question and went on and on about how choice is a form of “forced abortion” (eugenics). Got that, ladies? If you think you’re free, you’re not. Then he stated that he wasn’t opposed to “voluntary birth control.” Well, does that include abortion, then?

    Dan Dennett, in his imitable style, exposed religion for what it is by presenting many of the different religions, as well as the subsets. Although it has all been done before, it is still a very simple but powerful argument, in my opinion, because it forces a theist to admit that at least all but one is man-made. It also forces the antagonist to attempt to reason as to why their particular version is the one true version, rather than babble on about why *a* God must exist.
