Would someone please pay for me to go on this cruise — I promise to behave myself.

Paul Kurtz’s skeptic organization has just announced its next cruise, this one to Alaska. Join the Center for Inquiry Explorers Club “with a rich line-up of events and activities, a stellar cast of speakers, entertainment, and breathtaking excursions, all aboard the luxurious Holland America Westerdam.” The top-billed speaker is Barbara Forrest (go here for details).

    Bill I wouldn’t want to see you beat up Kurtz or Forrest. You’re an ID demon as it is.(Smile…)

    Why isn’t Rip Taylor part of the lineup? I would SO be there.

    I’ll kick in $50 if you’ll actually go. I did an Alaska cruise on Holland America Cruise a few years ago and it was great. The majestic beauty produced by natural selection was awesome. Or at least that’s what the chemicals in my brain are telling me.

    By the way, has anyone claimed the $1,000 prize for the Smithsonian emails?

    Also this: When a gaggle of neo-Darwinists forms for an event like this, is it their secret goal to prevent one another from surviving/reproducing, so as to perpetuate their particular set of genes? Do they plot against one another in secret? Should we expect anyone to disappear overboard? Or is it like the show “Survivor” where they form alliances in the beginning, then stab one another in the back once it gets down to two or three survivors?

    No one has claimed the prize yet.

    If Bill were to offer a trade – taking someone as a guest to a party at Hef’s mansion the guest would in turn get Bill on that Alaskan cruise. In effect this is trading the company of Ms. January for Ms. Eugenie Scott. There’s a one sided bargain if I ever saw one and someone is sure to jump on it, so to speak… πŸ˜‰

    I’ll fund the trip for you, brave soul. Gather data, don’t get assimilated, wear a cool t-shirt, etc. Steady hand on the tiller and all that…

    I fear that Dr. D would be made to walk the plank.

    AAARRRRRRRRRRR!

    I guess the phrase “Whatever floats your boat” applies: in this case one that is intelligently engineered and non-randomly navigated (they hope).
