Richard Dawkins tommorrow at KU!

Richard Dawkins is speaking tommorrow at the University of Kansas' Lied Center and I will be there. His topic is The God Delusion and if you want a preview of the sorts of things that might be discussed, check out this article at PZ Myers' Pharyngula. PZ happens to have met Dawkins in England just recently.

Dawkins' talk at KU is part of the same series that brought Ken Miller to Lawrence. Dawkins is an outspoken atheist so I am sure there will be a lot of fire works generated by his talk.

I expect good coverage from other Kansas science and political type bloggers, so we should lots to choose from on Tuesday!

FYI I strongly recommend reading Dawkins' book The God Delusion. If you are an atheist or agnostic his arguements will re-enforce your beliefs. If you are a theist then his arguments are quite serious and you need to think about them and address them.
