My wife and I met at the University of Pennsylvania...

...and she recently asked me if I wanted to join her at the Bicentenial Celebration of the Philomathean Society (a philosophical/debate organization she was a member of). Apparently the featured speaker is...Prof. Richard Dawkins. I had to explain WHY I would enthusiastically join her...

1. Some of my family used to live in Philomath, Oregon. "Love-knowledge"

not bad advice at all.

2. That ought to be a very interesting gathering.

Hope you enjoy it.

Are you saying that your wife did not know who Dawkins is?

3. No she did not...

She's also an atheist, but could care less about the political and philosophical debates.

4. Ah, she is much like me.

I come here and read in A&A, but I am often baffled by the people who get so upset about people who believe.

I am only upset when they try to impose religion on me. All the philosophical debates are better left to others.
