Meeting Micheal Shermer

  1. Oct 16, 2008 #1
    Two weeks ago i had the honor of attending the 3rd annual Beyond Belief Lectures hosted by the Salk at UCSD. I just wanted to say how amazing it was to hear and meet many of my personal heroes. It was great, during the lunch break Micheal Shermer sat down at the same table as me and i got a chance to talk with him. Also i got to chat with sam harris Lawrence Krauss !!!!!!!!!! :)
