Paul Nelson & Stacey Ake at Temple University, Monday, April 16

Spread the love

Assuming my plane can make it into the Philadelphia airport today — balmy weather the East Coast is having, eh? — Professor Stacey Ake of Drexel University and I will be presenting opposing viewpoints on ID & evolution tonight at Temple University. This is the same series in which Marcus Ross and Peter Dodson recently spoke. Tonight’s program starts at 6 pm and goes until 8:30. This event is free and open to the public. The lectures will be located in Gladfelter Hall, 1115 W. Berks Street, Room 13.

    Is anyone making a video of it?

    I am happy to hear about this debate, and hope the weather and the air transport system (of which I’m a part) doesn’t let you down. I am curious though, why ID debates are so often announced at the very last minute on this and other ID blogs. Is it deliberate or just a matter of IDists being busy people?

    I don’t know all the factors that figure into these debates, but I think it’s a shame that the audio of debates aren’t more widely available on the Internet after they’ve taken place. (or if they are already, please point me to the archive!!) I’d love to hear, for example, the audio from the Darwin vs. Design conference at SMU that just took place. Maybe it’s unreasonable to expect it to be available so soon after the event, but it’d sure be nice to make it available at some point.

    For me personally, advance notice (or lack thereof) isn’t a huge issue… I live in Oregon and the odds of one of these events taking place within a reasonable distance of my home would be quite small. Therefore I don’t anticipate being able to attend one any time soon. But I can certainly see why the lack of advance notice would be frustrating to some.

    TRoutMac, I lived in L.A. until about four years ago, and was able to attend several ID events at Biola University. Recently there was an event in Atlanta, where I am now. If you live near a big city, it seems that eventually something comes your way.

    Portland or Eugene, Oregon seem like the most likely candidates for such an event… as home to University of Oregon, I suppose Eugene is probably the most likely. venue, if it’s likely at all. I would quite happily make the 2.5 or 3 hour drive from my location to either Portland or Eugene if something like that took place.

    The next big city is Seattle, but that’s a good 7 hours… too far.

    Thanks!

    Then perhaps we should take matters into our own hands and organize an ID flashmob… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_mob

    No speaker would be required for that.

    (how do you tag quotes here?)

    I meant “hyperlinks”, not quotes.

    russ, if I understand your question:

    &lt a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_mob” &gt Flash Mob &lt /a &gt

    would result in:

    Flash Mob

    substitute the less than and greater than symbols for ampersand lt and ampersand gt.

    (I can never seem to get those tags to post right)

    One more try:

    would result in:
