Hello CFI, I know I’m just a lurker here but I wanted to share this event announcement. If you are on the East Coast, please try to make the trip to Philadelphia on Saturday November 10 for a lecture about the creationist threat to science education.
Here’s the details. You can PM, email, or call me if you have any questions.
