For any of the Bad Religion fans here, Dr. Graffin now has his PhD dissertation from Cornell available. It is in paperback book form titled "Evolution, Monism, Atheism and the Naturalist World-View: Perspectives from Evolutionary Biology". 252 pages.

I've been a fan of Bad Religion for almost a decade. I plan on picking the book up after the semester's over. Greg has a masters in geology from UCLA as well... very interesting guy.

Is there an audio version of the book? I'd love to hear Greg sing about Evolution, Monism, Atheism and the Naturalist World-View. I have been a Bad Religion fan for about 4 years...

Bad Religion are a 80's-present So-Cal punk band (I think they are So-Cal). They are a huge influence to just about every American punk band out there, and I think they or members of Bad Religion own the Epitaph Record label.

Dr. Greg Graffin is the singer and founder of the band.

Greg founded the punk rock band (now more 'alternative punk') Bad Religion in 1980, and they put out thier first LP when he was 17. Greg was born in Madison, WI, and later moved with his parents (both professors) to SoCal. He attended uni there and graduated with a BA in anthropology. Went on to UCLA for a masters in geology... he did field work in Bolivia, I believe. Went to Cornell around 1990 or so, and took a leave of absence from '94-99 for the band/wife/kids, and returned to complete his PhD in '03. Not bad for a singer of a punk rock band.

Epitaph was founded by Gerkowitz, their guitarist.

I currently live in Wisconsin, but I don't follow football. I'm a fan of Metallica ... before the bus accident in '95 where all the members of the band died and MTV found talantless short-haired facsimiles to appeal to the masses in order to make lots of money (True story! I swear!).

Why do you ask? Other than to check your ESP skills? :biggrin:

My ESP doesn't work very well. It only tells me that you probably have an interest in physics. I think I need more practice or something.

Just inspired by another thread on astrology. How many Wisconsinites (which I guessed you were from your location) are not Packer fans ? I guess you're in the minoiry there. And the reference to "wherever else I may roam" was indicative of a Metallic affinity.

Well, one out of two ain't bad. Need more practice, though .... :grumpy:
