Well, well, well, I went to my office this morning and, just as I got my coffee, opened up the laptop and logged in, who walks in? PZ Myers! What a surprise.
So, we chatted some. He thought that PLoS ONE should be the place to have all the Intelligent Design papers published. Since it is Open Access, everyone could see for themselves how foolish those “papers” really are and he can send the Pharyngulites to post thousands of comments. I thought that would be pretty poor framing for PLoS, though.
Anyway, I asked the barista to take a picture of us (under the fold):
Whoa! What happened!
PZ was sitting right there, I swear! And the camera shows….nothing! Empty space! It was, I am convinced, the ghost of PZ!
Then I did what every blogger does and checked Google and realized that PZ was, at the time, in Oklahoma! Oh, and at the same time, he was in London, at the HQ of Nature, receiving a long deserved rectification of history.
So, how many PZs there are in the world? And which one is real!
