PZ Myers Becomes a Kentucky Colonel

After the Creation Museum trip, there was a surprise waiting for PZ Myers.

He was led to the front of the museum, just outside the gates, and presented with… his certification for being named an official Kentucky Colonel!

The award was presented by American Atheists legal director Edwin Kagin.

This is the video I was able to shoot:

"You ask me to not judge Dawkins, while you judge me. Okay, Jan."

Richard Dawkins: It’s “Wise and Sensible” ..."
"Books have a habit of causing such things. It must be why Christains hate them ..."

This Group Uses Christianity as Justification ..."
"They decry the practice of, "Participation Awards", for people who strive but fail to achieve ..."

This Group Uses Christianity as Justification ..."

    I don’t think so. Wikipedia (which took the place of the Bible) says that the governor of Kentucky bestows that honor. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kentucky_colonel )

  • You got great video of this! The back of your head ruined all of my shots, Hemant =P

  • Demetrius Of Pharos

    @ mikespeir: Watch the video again. The presenter specifically says at one point towards the end that the document is signed by the governor.

    What’s weird, Demetrius, is that I was specifically listening for that very thing. I missed it, anyway.

  • Heh, that’s awesome. My father in law is also a Kentucky Colonel. Only, we have no idea how he got that way. lol He just received the certificate in the mail one day.

  • Hrdina

    He said it at about 2:30 of the video.
