PZ Myers

The rural United States is a strange place to live, with a citizenry absolutely convinced of their divine favor and destiny, yet still insisting that the silliest ideas must be respected. I’ll be discussing some of the more memorable encounters with creationists, and how I think we must deal with this problem.

PZ Myers is a scientist specializing in evolution and developmental biology, now living in the heart of the American midwest, where the population thinks evolution is of the devil and embryos are babies. It creates a special kind of tension.
