ARGH! very poor level of discussion there... the god side was appallingly bad even by their standards.
even our guys seemed to be having an off day.

yay finally this is on youtube. i went to that convention but I flew in to washington DC at like 6am and spent the whole day walking around the city(first time there) and went to the convention talks later that day. I ended up dozing off during parts of the richard's talk!! which was around 7-8pm i was sooo tired from walking around for 6 hours.
I think he caught me too :( i felt horrible.

well. As Dawkins pointed out it IS a shame that not more students are going into physics but it's not surprising given that the route for a physics undergrad in america is
4 years BA (hard) cost: $50,000-70,000
7 years for PhD (very hard) earning $18,000-22,000/yr a year IF you get an RA or TA position right away.
2 years post doc (very very hard) earning $40,000/yr
Faculty position maybe (very very very hard to get)
Tenure track if you're lucky 10 years after that you will be making $70,000-90,000

I am a physics major myself I can't think of these number too much or it scares me a little.

Go to: CNN Debate on Koran in Toilet

Mr. Hooper does miss the point of the 1st amendment as Hitchens pointed out. It exists precisely to protect unpopular speech and expression... we don't need laws to protect popular speech or popular acts of expression. It's sad that the kid chose putting a book in the toilet as a means to express his disgust to what the book stands for.
