STC Toronto blog has moved

I like maps. Robert Heinlein had one of his characters say that they gave him the pleasant feeling of being in two places at once.

I made it! After a late start in Toronto and a 14-hour drive, LotStreetWiz and I arrived at Durham, North Carolina and Research Triangle Park at 2:45 this morning.

Saturday is a blogging skills session and a lab tour: for me, behind the scenes at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.

"You know you’re on Pharyngula when…"

Inkadu says,

Put simply, we can distinguish between ‘harmful’ and ‘non-harmful’ religious beliefs based upon content. We cannot distinguish between them based upon epistemology.
