      Hi All,

      Some of you may want to tune in and show some support for science when I debate a creationist on WOSU 820 AM.  It is scheduled for next Tuesday at noon, i.e. 12/12 at 12.  It is a call-in show, so I'd be grateful for any rational calls.   I believe the show will also be replayed at 11 pm that day.

      I do not yet know who I will be debating, though it appears it will be somebody from the "Institute for Creation Research."  I don't know if the mystery surrounding the guest is a product of the producer or ICR, but no doubt somebody at ICR is reading my book (The Riddled Chain) to get a jump on things.  Once I find out who the creationist guest will be, I'll send out another note to see if any of you have pointers on how to target the individual.

      Thanks and best wishes,
      Jeff

      Hi Jeff, I am local too. I am a former student at that department and I left before you came on and teach down the road at CSCC. Fred Anderle (the moderator)

        Fred Anderle (the moderator) is usually pretty good, but he gets very spiritual and fuzzy sometimes.

        If you are not a member, you may want to contact CORI (Central Ohioians for Rational Inquiry, a local skeptics group) and the two Humanist Association chapters in Columbus (www.hcco.org and one run through the UU Church on Weisenheimer. For moral support there is Frank Zindler, a great debater, big local figure, and big man in American Atheists. He is also the tallest atheist I know. ;-) He used to run a TV show on community access cable channel here.

        Hi All,

        Some of you may want to tune in and show some support for science when I
        debate a creationist on WOSU 820 AM. It is scheduled for next Tuesday at
        noon, i.e. 12/12 at 12. It is a call-in show, so I'd be grateful for any
        rational calls. I believe the show will also be replayed at 11 pm that
        day.

        I do not yet know who I will be debating, though it appears it will be
        somebody from the "Institute for Creation Research." I don't know if the
        mystery surrounding the guest is a product of the producer or ICR, but no
        doubt somebody at ICR is reading my book (The Riddled Chain) to get a jump
        on things. Once I find out who the creationist guest will be, I'll send out
