Pharyngula

Ah, well. If only I could be in two places at once, and could also afford to fly to Europe on a whim. I’m going to be in Arizona in early June, and the British Humanists are meeting at the same time in London, with what looks like a very interesting schedule bracketed by talks by Dawkins and Grayling. It will be a fine event, and you should all go…if you can’t make the one in Arizona, anyway.

    I see the handiwork of GOD in this.

    It can’t be due to chance, any more than chance created all of the evolutionary patterning. Therefore…

    Arizona? Coming to Tucson by any chance, or are you going to make me drive up to Phoenix?

    It’s actually cheaper and easier for me, and most people living on the East Coast, to go to London than to Arizona.

    I don’t think dealing with enemies by double booking their calnders is God’s style. IIRC, It’s more into violent slaughter

    What’s the event in Arizona? I did a little searching on the interwebz but didn’t find anything advertised. And none of the creationist groups down here are breeding hell God hounds and sharpening pitchforks yet. So, if it’s a stealth strike you’re attempting, good work so far…

    What are you in AZ for?

    I live in Boston, so I feel like both sides are laughing at me.

    Count me as another “What are you doing in AZ” tally. My mother is a house mom in Tucson and it would be great if I could give her some info on any public event you may be doing.

    I might actually try and go to the London one. Scary as I find going up to capital on my lonesome what with my being one of them posh southerners who gets confuzzed by city environs. Thanks for this, PZ – I never know what’s going on with this stuff in the UK and it’s probably about time I made an effort.

    I checked your iCal calendar in the sidebar, but it hasn’t been updated since September. So, what city in AZ? Or is there a link to the humanists? (Regrettably, I won’t be there.)

    I’ve got to fix that iCal thing someday.

    Arizona is the American Humanist Association convention.

    California is the Keck School of Medicine at USC.

    As it’s only 15, I am *so* going to be there in London.

    It’s in Tempe, so Slaughter wins the “shortest drive” contest, and it looks like Uncephalized and I will be touring scenic (:p)I-10west.

    When in Arizona? Where in Arizona? I’m in Phoenix and I’d love to come hear you speak, if possible.

    Then I read the other comments… :) Nevermind! :D Too bad it’s so expensive, though. Will you be doing anything outside the event? I’d love to have the chance to buy you the alcoholic beverage of your choice!

    Phoenix…pfft. Come to Flagstaff. Way better than Phx. Except I got to see Leonard Cohen there a couple of weeks ago, so points for that.

    British Humanists schedule their meeting to avoid me, too

    AVOID???
    What a lousy headline! Most unlike you, PZ, especially when we are all supposed to be on the same side!
    I cant imagine that your European cousins would schedule a meeting deliberatly to AVOID you.
    Could it be that both dates have been in the schedule for a LONG time, and that this is pure coincidence?

    Bought my ticket to the BHA event today – thanks for alerting me PZ!

    Yes. It was a joke. No one would seriously schedule a major meeting around my availability — I thought that was obvious.

    That’s where the term “Close captioned for the sarcasm impaired” comes in handy. ;) Do you expect to do any hanging out with the hoi poloi outside the meeting you’re attending?
