NDT is coming to my school
I mentioned elsewhere that William Lane Craig came to my school. I guess the administrators wanted to make up for this laps of judgement, so they invited Neil deGrasse Tyson to give a lecture. It's set to take place April 8 at 8pm. I'm definitely going to it.

That's why I'm going to show up early for a good seat. I'm predicting a packed house.

I love that man. He knows how to talk to average Joes in an entertaining yet informative way. And his passion is pretty clear; he doesn't just teach science, he lives it.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

RE: NDT is coming to my school
Three questions:

1) Where is this going to take place?

2) Are non-students allowed to attend?

3) If not, is there security which will be summoned when it becomes apparent that "I'm still gonna!"?

1) Miami University in Oxford, Ohio (about 40 miles away from Cincinnati).

2) If it's in the building that I'm thinking of, I believe it's open to the public.

3) I can just say you are my brother.

What part of Virginia do you live in?

Northern, actually. It wouldn't be too long a drive...Consider

I'll get more information about the venue and post it here tomorrow. I'm pretty sure it's open to the public.

RE: NDT is coming to my school
I just found this on the lecture schedule.

http://www.units.muohio.edu/lecture/lectures/tyson.php

The lecture is entitled "Science as a way of knowing." All lectures normally take place in Hall auditorium, which can seat a few hundred people. My school is anticipating such a large turn out that they have switched it to Millett Hall, which is a basketball arena that seats 9,200!
