PZ Myers!

  • May 5, 2013 · 10:30 AM

PZ Myers is a biologist at the University of Minnesota Morris, with a special interest in developmental biology and evolution. He’s been battling creationists and bible-wallopers on the internet since 1993, and has gotten slightly curmudgeonly about it all. The blog Pharyngula is his outlet for venting his fury at faith, stupidity, and injustice, an occupation which somehow led to him being named American Humanist of the Year in 2009, and International Humanist of 2011 by the IHEU. He’s confident that science is the only tool we have for reaching new knowledge, regards faith and ignorance as vices, and finds happiness with his family.

    So refreshing to know we are not the only ones. Would love to have a round table meet up where we can simply just meet others like us & converse about same beliefs.

    Keep people like this coming.
    First part was technical , but that was OK,
    Good to know this is backed up with Math,
    which makes the evidence even stronger.
    IEAA needs to keep up the work,THANKS.

      Ian, I will ask Charlene and Teresa if they need help guiding people to the entrance, and they will be able to show you once there.

    Hey everyone! After the PZ event, if you're not going to the fundraiser lunch, please consider coming to Fullerton to learn about Camp Quest West.

    It's a family-friendly event from 1:30 - 3:30. Learn more here:

    Thanks for posting this! I can't find any info on UCR's or Myers' site referencing this though. I'd like to invite some bio buddies. Is there an independent link where I can direct them for more info?

      Since this is our event, I'm guessing this is all that's there, aside from perhaps the UCR SSA.

      Ok, thanks!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
