The subject of the lecture was The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, the speaker was an ex-Protestant pastor of some three decades who is now Roman Catholic. Now that sounded interesting, I just had to attend! My conclusion, and advice, is that the best way to become thoroughly convinced that transubstantiation is not true is to have someone try to convince you that it is true.
oday, the front page of Prof. Richard Dawkins is advertising, "VOICES OF SCIENCE: PZ Myers - Buy it now on DVD." Oh, PZ Myers is also a scientist? Who would'a'thunk'it?!?! Well, that is what I get for procrastinating. I had written up two nice little essays on PZ Myers' shenanigans and before I got a chance to post them he inflicted the coup de grace. Or perhaps better stated, he lowered himself to even greater depths of childishness and humanization.
