PZ Myers is a biologist and associate professor at the University of Minnesota, Morris. He writes about science and atheism at an extremely popular blog, Pharyngula. PZ is known for unabashedly dealing with religion and creationism, and has ruffled more than a few feathers by speaking out against the Creation Museum, mocking the movie Expelled, and desecrating a Eucharist (just to name a few things).
Sponsored by the Society of Non-Theists at Purdue University
Facebook event for the lecture is here; RSVPing isn't necessary, but it'll give me a nice head count and make me happy.
I also get the added bonus of picking up PZ at the airport, huzzah! And if his flight is delayed at all (it'll be cutting it close), I get the other added bonus of frantically driving PZ while praying to the Flying Spaghetti Monster that I don't crash and kill a famous and beloved atheist/blogger.* No pressure.
