Think they would kick us out or have JoeG beat us up?
I live about 3 hours by car from Seattle (I lived there for 6 years when I was a kid) and would dearly love to sit through 9 days of ID sermons but I don't meet their admission requirements:
"Admission Requirements: You must be currently enrolled in a college or university as a junior, senior, or graduate student. Required application materials include (1) a resume/cv, (2) a copy of your academic transcript, (3) a short statement of your interest in intelligent design and its perceived relationship to your career plans and field of study, and (4) either a letter of recommendation from a professor who knows your work and is friendly toward ID, or a phone interview with the seminar director."
Of course I eagerly want to incorporate ID into my field of study but I'm not a student and the spider that lives behind my toilet (that I've named Professor Weirdo) is being stubborn and won't agree to writing a letter of recommendation, or a telephone interview. Dang, I haz a sad. :(
I'm even more devastated that I will miss out on the rumored appearance of ID A-lister and toaster technician joey g, who would undoubtedly steal the show by dazzling the attendees with his brilliant, precise measurements of CSI in a wide variety of living and non-living things, including angel food caeks that he cooks up in his superbly outfitted basement lab and caek bakery.
Of course it would also be a huge thrill to watch joey use the world class fighting skills he learned as a war hero in Iraq to beat up and evict any evo trouble makers who selfishly disrupt the proceedings by asking relevant, scientific questions.
And last but far from least, if I were allowed to attend and joey does make an appearance, I or someone else might be able to get joey to share some deep thoughts about his loving, patient, open-minded, muslim/christian philosophy and how to properly demonstrate those allah-yhwh given thoughts with kind and considerate internet forum etiquette.
I'm crushed, crushed I tell you, that I won't be allowed to attend the seminars.
I live in Seattle, and sometimes catch the bus across the street from Tard Central. I'd go, but I don't meet the requirements (Why didn't they just say "Students at backwoods bible school only"? Would have saved a lot of trouble, and their target audience might have been able to read that without moving their lips). Anyway, I can't really spare the time. Or the neurons.
But think of all the syuntifik ejeekashun you'll miss out on!11!!111
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. - Jesus in Matthew 10:34
But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. -Jesus in Luke 19:27
