Hey, I lucked out last night and managed to score a ticket at the last minute to see Richard Dawkins speak for the Skeptics Society at Caltech.

Dawkins was awesome! Michael Shermer did a great job interviewing him. Mr Deity (Youtube) introduced Dawkins. Bill Nye the Science Guy was a guest attendee. And the frosting on top was that, none other than Ray Comfort (the banana guy) was outside the theater handing out free copies of The Origin of the Species (with his 50 page introduction about creationismand an invitation to accept Christ at the end). I had Ray autograph Origins and I got a picture with him. It was a wonderful evening filled with a lot of surprises!

I think the popular phrase "pics or it didn't happen" would apply here.
Seriously though, that sounds like an amazing experience!

The picture with Ray Comfort was more of a novelty... you know, like when you take a picture with Mickey Mouse at Disneyland. Unfortunately, for the picture with Ray, I am at the mercy of the lady that was kind enough to take a picture with her camera and say she would e-mail it to me. I have yet to receive it. I do have some other pictures of the evening on my cell phone... but they are very poor quality.

I never received the picture with Ray Comfort

The pictures I do have totally suck, but here they are:

Richard Dawkins, Mr Deity,
Bill Nye, and Michael Shermer.

Argh, I just found out today that Christopher Hitchens participated in a debate in Birmingham on Sept 7th, which is about a 3.5-4 hour drive from me. I would have TOTALLY gone to it had I known!!! Because of his losing battle to cancer, I likely won't ever get that chance again.
