Bid on a book autographed by Randi!

Signed copy of a book by Darwin
During the 10-day long voyage to the Galapagos Islands in August sponsored by the James Randi Educational Foundation, we took along a copy of The Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle, Darwin's diary of his ground-breaking trip 150 years ago. Some smart cookie asked all of us to sign the book, and now that autographed copy is being auctioned! It has signatures by Randi, me, PZ Myers, George Hrab, and a whole lot more. The auction winner will also get a signed photo of Randi posing next to a Galapagos tortoise.

This is a pretty cool auction, and the proceeds will go toward a scholarship to help people attend the premier critical thinking conference The Amaz!ng Meeting 7, which will be in Las Vegas on July 9-12, 2009. We're working on the speaker line-up and it's already looking, well, amazing. So bid on the book and help some deserving person attend the meeting!
