This morning, I saw a tiny little blog post somewhere about an upcoming debate at Stanford between Christopher Hitchens and some guy from a dubious non-profit called the Discovery Institute. Their main objective is to overthrow centuries of scientific work across a broad range of topics through carefully contrived personal attacks on the long-dead Charles Darwin. (I may be paraphrasing a bit.) Apparently, they have a god who is in favor of that, so it's all cool. Skeptical? Much of the state of Florida isn't, so you shouldn't be either.
TICKETS: You must have a ticket to attend the event. Tickets can be reserved/obtained at no charge, by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org You must provide this information: Name, Affiliation ("Referred by …"), # of tickets. Seating is limited and tickets will be reserved on a first come, first reserved basis. On the day of the debate there will be a table out front for reserved tickets, and you can pick them up there at the event.
I'm hoping my cousin (as a bona fide Stanford student) will be able to score tickets through regular campus channels before they're gone, and she and I will be able to attend and chortle and chortle. I hope my cool new evolution shirt arrives before Sunday!
