As part of its Darwin 1809-1859-2009 commemoration of the bicentennial of Darwin’s birth and the sesquicentennial of the publication of the Origin, the University of Wisconsin–Parkside‘s Science Night series presents Prof. Jerry Coyne of the University of Chicago speaking on “Why Evolution Is True” at 7 PM on Wednesday, Sept. 9, in Greenquist Hall 103. The event is free and open to the public, and sponsored by the University’s Committee on Lectures and Fine Arts, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Biological Sciences. Parking is free after 6:30 PM. If you’re in southeastern Wisconsin or northern Illinois, we’re in Kenosha, and not hard to find or get to. (For one of our previous Darwin 1809-1859-2009 events, see here.)A fossil fish, Diplomystus dentatus, with no particular relation to Jerry’s talk, but a nice picture.

Free parking? If I leave Massachusetts right now, I might make the lecture.
Maybe Prof. Jerry Coyne will lecture near here some day soon.
Jerry, if you get a chance to speak in the London area, I can promise you some free beer at least.
I’m not sure we can match the Tuscaloosa fare, though we can surely find some pretty good Indian food.
I’ll actually be speaking at the Royal Society Darwin meetings in London in November. Beer always welcome, and Indian food is a challenge: Chicago has the world’s best, I think, outside of India itself, where I’ve been five times! I used to love the Standard Indian Restaurant at Westbourne Grove, but don’t know if it’s still there.
Well, I’ll try to gather up some of the local science-interested heathen and have a meetup, if you have time to join us for a few beers and a meal.
This must be the meeting: http://royalsociety.org/event.asp?id=7518
Greg didn’t mention how they lured me up there with promises of Kewpie Burgers, chocolate malts, and kringles!
What are kringles? Edible Santa Clauses?
I know, it is a danish.
It is the danish.
Professor, please stop over in Madison! I’m sure a speaking space can be arranged even at this late date, and attendance would likely be excellent!
The picture and Jerry no doubt have the property of “niceness” in common.
Here’s a good review of Jerry’s (apparently excellent) presentation over at Secular Cafe: http://secularcafe.org/showthread.php?p=67150#post67150
