I’m getting ready for a book signing tonight in Macon (6 p.m. at the Barnes and N0ble in the The Crossings on Riverside Drive) and this weekend’s Decatur Book Festival (Thornbriar Press’s booth will be on Ponce de Leon) between the Old Courthouse and Church Street. 

Therefore, I only have time to post a quick link to this posting — from AJC’s Momania blog (includes video).  In it, Nye urges parents not to teach their children creationism:  

 

“And I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that’s fine,” Nye says. “But don’t make your kids do it because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can – we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems.”

Check it out.
