We here at Panda’s Thumb are pleased to announce the establishment of a new video lecture series: Brilliantly Illuminating and Lively Lectures, or BILLs.

Once every two weeks, a new BILL will be posted along with commentary by a PT crew member. Topics can vary widely, with the only criteria being brilliance, illumination, liveliness, and/or financial contributions from members like you. Feel free to nominate lectures for inclusion in this prestigious series by leaving a comment here or by emailing the director of the BILL series at BILL at pandasthumb dot org.

Our first two BILLs are already selected, and the inaugural BILL will be posted on Wednesday 27 July.

TED is cool. But BILL is more excellent. Party on, dudes!

Most triumphant!

I’m looking forward to this.

But is our pathetic level of detail excellent? Bill “The Sweater” Dembski’s inquiring mind wants to know.

Don’t make us get medieval on you, Dembski. We have the details that fit the bill, while you have pre-Newtonian non-mechanism for non-events.

Did you have to mention the risible man of ill repute, Glen? But I suppose it will be fascinating to see how the loons over at Uncommon Dissent react to this. Have the utmost confidence in the PT crew that this will be a valuable addition to PT.

The evolution of wyld stallions, of course!

You can then shift from animalia to plantae, and cover the evolution of wyld scallions.

The WhyEvolutionIsTrue YouTube channel has a plethora of great evolution videos.

What is the topic of the first BILL?

That’s classified. I’ll just say that the lecture is an older one, by an older chap who recently wrote a bestselling book that mentions the lecture. And the lecture features several interesting visitors. That’s all you get for now. All together now: BOGUS!!!!

That wouldn’t have been Richard Dawkins now, right? The popular science writer and biologist whose second wife played a Time Lord on “Doctor Who”?
