My fellow Secular Student Alliance board member Phil Ferguson is an avid Pharyngula reader and knows PZ Myers has an opinion or two about the Creation Museum. Since PZ is speaking at our conference the first weekend in August, he had an idea: Why not invite PZ to join us a day early, have as many people as possible join us, and lead a tour through the Creation Museum?
PZ graciously agreed to do it and now we’re inviting anyone interested to join us: On Friday, August 7th, at 10:00 a.m., we’ll be meeting at the museum entrance.
Ken Ham, the museum’s founder, will be invited to join us.
To see a joint PZ/Ham tour would be well worth the price of admission… which is good because I’ve been there before and nothing else in the museum is worth it. A solo PZ tour wouldnt be so bad, either.
Having scientists visiting the museum — and then documenting the inanity inside for the general public — may be worth the few bucks you give up by going there.
While it’s not a requirement to join us for the Creation Museum trip, registration for the SSA Conference is still open! (And travel grants are available if you need help getting funding for a flight.) The festivities officially begin Friday night.
I have a grad school final Thursday evening in Chicago… but I’ll do everything I can to reschedule it so I can join in the “museum” tour. How often do you get a fun opportunity like that?
By the way, the other day, I mentioned a fundraiser that another board member, Ashley Paramore, was conducting on YouTube.
Check out how awesome you all are!
We haven’t reached the $5,000 goal yet, but this is pretty damn impressive. It’s not too late to give!
