Rebecca of Skepchick.org is putting together a monthly lecture series in Boston, aka Boston Skeptics, and I’ve been asked to speak on March 24 (hopefully, I won’t kill the damn thing off). So, if you were at a meeting of Boston Skeptics, and had to listen to me rant for around forty minutes (give or take), what would you want to hear me rant about?
I’m thinking that I want to speak about how, at a fundamental level, I don’t think defenders of evolutionary biology are making the best defense of evolution–or the best offense against creationism (which is that biomedical research is so intertwined with evolutionary biology, that to argue about the existence of evolution is not only silly and ignorant, but harmful to combating infectious disease).
Or I could just yell at everyone to wash your damn hands…
What are your suggestions?
