PZ Myers to visit Lake Superior Freethinkers

On Sunday, October 7th at 9:00 AM, Lake Superior Freethinkers will host PZ Myers in a presentation at its monthly meeting in the Radisson Hotel on Superior St. in Duluth. Put this on your calendar now!

Dr. Myers is an associate professor of biology at the University of Minnesota Morris and the author of one of the most popular science blogs on the Internet: Pharyngula. He is also a prominent speaker at freethought and secular conferences around the world. The video below is his presentation at the Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne, Australia in April of 2012.




Dr. Myers is a strong advocate for excellence in science education and has recently been instrumental in securing a $1.2 million grant for UMM to support undergraduate research and improve science education in secondary schools.

Professor Myers is a fierce enemy of the encroachment of creationism into the public school science curriculum. His talk to LSF is titled "The evolution of creationism". Don't miss it!
