PZ Myers in Edmonton!

Recently PZ was in Edmonton to debate Kirk Durston on the existence of a personal god. Well Durston’s arguments were atrocious full of the usual strawmen, false-dichotomys, and post-hoc fallacies we’ve come to expect from apologists. It was educational to watch PZ show how a god is not needed to produce complexity from an evolutionary standpoint, otherwise it was a case of dogmatism being blind to reality on Durston’s part.

The fun in the evening really got going at the obligatory Pharyngufest afterwards at RATT in SUB on the UofA campus. PZ was the center of attention but was very accomodating even allowing me to request that our picture together was with drink in hand. The most amusing part though was when I asked and he signed my copy of “Death From The Skies” by Phil Plait

Thanks again to CFI Calgary for organizing the Lecture at the UofC which I also attended. Thanks also go to UAAA in cooperation with Campus for Christ for putting the debate in Edmonton together.

And now for some pictures, courtesy of my friends Marc-Julien and Bill

Now wait until I go to TAM this year and get Phil Plait to sign it.

    a large down payment lets the car dealer and only those customers who can
    afford the payments. Compare and select: It is always worth speaking to your insurance company.
