I flew Continental Airlines from Oakland to Dallas/FortWorth yesterday. Things went uneventfully, except perhaps for the spill somebody at the food court at Houston Intercontinental made that reached the bottom of my backpack before someone pointed out that it was getting wet. And so Marc and Chris picked me up from the airport and got me to Marc’s place.
I’m getting ready for some talks. There will be one on Tuesday evening at Southern Methodist University, where I will debate whether “intelligent design” should be taught in public schools. I will take the negative. The location is the theater of the Hughes-Trigg Student Center at SMU. The event will begin at 7PM. There is no admission charge and the event is open to the public. On Saturday, I will talk to the North Texas Skeptics on the outcome of the Kitzmiller case and what has happened since then. That will start at 2 PM at the Center for Community Cooperation in Dallas. That’s open to the public, too. There are a couple of additional bits that may work out; if so I will talk to a class at the University of Texas at Arlington on Thursday, and at a church in Arlington on Sunday.
So you may not hear much from me this week. We will see…
Update: The SMU debate was featured in the SMU Daily Campus.

Elsberryâ€™s fifteen minute presentation was nothing but sheer rebuttal and refutation. Claming that ID â€œisnâ€™t even a science,â€ the biologist stated that â€œanti-evolutionists have utilized political action to gain government support for teaching ID in public schools.â€
