The SCF is proud to announce that we will be hosting PZ Myers at SCC in January.

Tuesday, January 26
7pm, Student Center
Sacramento City College
FREE for Los Rios students and faculty
$5 at the door for all others

PZ Myers is Associate Professor of Biology at University of Minnesota, Morris. He is author of the science blog Pharyngula, 2009 “Humanist of the Year,” and noted atheist activist and critic of intelligent design.

PZ’s talk will be titled “Complexity and Creationism,” and will address the issue of complexity as the creationists try to use it. His presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A.

Seating is limited, so you might like to know that PZ will also be speaking at UC Davis on Thursday 1/21, Chico State on Monday 1/25 and Sierra College in Rocklin on Thursday, 1/28.

This event is co-sponsored by the Speakers Bureau of the Secular Student Alliance.

  6. Very cool to see your group has sponsored PZ.
    Did you know about FAN? We have some excellent speakers, mainly on the third Tuesdays, right down near SCC.
    Love to meet you sometime.

  8. Hey guys and gals, thanks for having such a great event. I was really happy to see such a good turnout. It speaks testimony of all your hard work. Keep the speakers coming. Get the Friendly Atheist and/or some female atheist like Skepchick or Ann Gaylord and it’s bound to be a successful event. I wrote a tiny review about it and went over some of the stuff PZ (vaguely) went over.

    Heart, Kriss
