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.
