Um, SEC Tournament. (And lots of other league tournaments as well.) That weekend is the start of what is really the most wonderful time of the year.

I’m still trying to figure out how we (Bama) beat UK earlier this year :man_shrugging:t2:

McLatchie? Wasn’t he the one who got it into his head for a while that GULO was actually fully functional in humans somehow?

(S. Joshua Swamidass) #6

I believe that is the one. He is from the ID camp. It will be an interesting show. 10pm British Time. I hope you log in to show some support.

Ah yes, here we go:

I’ll see what I can do, but that’s a busy day for me (in addition to being my birthday), so I won’t make any promises! It does sound interesting though, so I’ll definitely watch it later if I miss it.

EDIT: I managed to misread the title, I though this was scheduled for May, not March!

(John Harshman) #9

Isn’t he a YEC?

(S. Joshua Swamidass) #10

I have no idea.

(Blogging Graduate Student) #11

Apparently not:

Sorry about last night. (Well, not really)

(T J Runyon) #16

Oh. I knew it was coming. We draw y’all in the second round every year. Glad it happened. Maybe they will fire Avery now haha

(S. Joshua Swamidass) #17

Would someone please post this at @tsz and Biologos? Coiming up in a couple hours, and I think people there might be interested.

I joined, great job in a pretty hostile crowd, though glad to see that some folks were treating you with respect.

I submitted, a couple times, a pretty simple question. Seems I was censored, wow.

“Josh: Have you asked Behe for a one-on-one conversation, whether in public or in private? What has been his response?”

I guess the moderator, Jonathan McLatchie, didn’t want to ask that one. At first he said, “that’s not a question for Josh” and then I reworded it as a question for Josh, and he ignored me. Too bad.
