@NLents and I met up before hi book signing for lunch yesterday. He is a brilliant thinker, and earnest in communicating science to the public. I’m really proud to see he has found a home with us. I’m looking forward to seeing his reach grow in the coming years, and I’m looking forward to his next book. This Friday, I’m looking forward to seeing @art in town too.
Last week, I did a joint event with @rcohlers and @Andrew_Loke in Hong Kong. I’m very much looking forward to @Andrew_Loke’s book on Adam and Eve, and will be soon discussing his recently published book on the Cosmological Argument (Amazon.com: God and Ultimate Origins: A Novel Cosmological Argument (Palgrave Frontiers in Philosophy of Religion) (9783319575469): Andrew Ter Ern Loke: Books). As one of the rising voices in the conversation, perhaps the most prominent from Asia, what a privilege to do an event with him.
This continues a pattern.
In January, @Guy_Coe drove across two states to spend a few days with me in California (Veritas Forums the Week Dad Died (January 2018)). Early summer, I met with @AJRoberts and @Agauger at the Dabar conference (Adventures in New Places —Ann Gauger on the Dabar Conference). Of course, many new friends were made too (@dga471, @Jordan and @Philosurfer) , but meeting up with Peaceful Science contributors I first connected with online is always fun.
If you are ever in St. Louis, drop me a note and maybe we can grab coffee together and discuss science.
I’ll be up there sometime next year
I will be going to Urbana in December!
I had a great time and you’re a generous host and stimulating conversationalist. Looking forward to many more interesting conversations. As I told you, I’ve thought differently about things since joining this forum and I thank you for that invitation. Let me know if you’re in NYC!
It was great meeting with you too @Nlents. Thank you also for finding the watch I lost in your rental car! Just so you know, have safe and sound right now. I will be fun to grab lunch with you next time I am in NYC. Maybe I’ll find a way to bring you back out to STL in January too.
@dga471 let us definitely spend some time together then.
Let me know when!
Had a beer with @art today and learned a great deal. He is a great scientist, and dedicated educator.
@Art had high praise for Peaceful Science, comparing us to a pre-Dover bulletin board ARN (http://www.arn.org/), where he and other scientists were engaging regularly with ID when it first arose. I really appreciate his rational for engaging back then, and right now too. It seems that both he and @pnelson were conversation partners back then too.
I am looking forward to hearing more stories from them, and others, that were from “before my time” in the public square.
@jordan, I hope you can connect with him soon about undergraduate institution science education. Some of the specific demographic challenges you are facing @art might have some good insight into.
If I ever stated at ARN that Art was ever wrong I take it all back!
I didn’t know Andy Samberg was a Peaceful Science fan! @swamidass Your first picture shows that you are even attracting celebrity attention!
