U2 can't make it to Michigan this year, due to Bono's back injury. (Me: "Ouch. He'll be fine." My girlfriend Susan: "What do you expect? He's old. He should pack it in.") So here are my attempts to fill the void.
1. I was a guest on the Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast about a week and a half ago. The subject was "junk DNA" and boy was it fun to talk to people who actually understand. Check it out; the whole show is really entertaining, and I've decided to subscribe. You know me and skeptics...
...I'm inviting you to come comment if you would like.I responded:
In light of your open letter to Stephen Meyer, I'd like to know what you meant by doing whatever was in your power to bring about the destruction of the Discovery Institute. What did you have in mind? Do you normally not support freedom of thought? I'm sincerely interested in your thinking on this and what means of destruction you had in mind. I appreciate your time.
Thanks for the invitation to comment at Uncommon Descent. I've read the "discussion" about me there and found it sickening. I'm not at all interested in commenting at your site, for several important reasons that you are welcome to ask me about.That was five days ago. In weeks to come, I will gladly explain how I believe we should go about destroying the Discovery Institute. And the whole goal is to support "freedom of thought."
If you are sincerely interested in my thinking, then I invite you to dialogue with me at my blog, the place where my remarks were posted. There, you will find that all voices are included, something that anyone who values freedom of thought would insist on.
Please come by the blog and ask your question. I'll answer it promptly and publicly, and in the spirit in which it is asked.
6. Finally, if you're here from the Cesspool or from the Discovery Institute, or if you came to cry about how I'm not nice enough to your favorite personage, just be aware that the Jolly Roger is still flying and my business is unfinished.
