My amazing night of "reason and science"


I had the good fortune of having dinner with Richard Dawkins, Michael Shermer, and Bill Nye last week.  The best way I can describe it was finding refuge in an oasis of "reason and science," a far cry from the Utah where I live and work.  Michael Shermer was a wonderful host, and his home was gorgeous.  Richard was as amazingly open and personable as I have known from our previous interactions.  I sat next to him at dinner and discussed everything from evolutionary biology to free will.  Having Bill Nye "drop by," was icing on the cake.  I also got to meet Jaclyn Glenn of YouTube fame, and she is more charming and gorgeous in person than I could have imagined.
