Saturday 3rd March 5.00pm A fabulous night with Kylie Sturgess and the Young Australian Skeptics.
Perhaps our most ambitious night yet with 7 speakers, one podcast, a book launch, book discussion and a skeptical quiz with prizes! Really does it get any better than that? The Skeptical Blog Anthology features essays by: Dr Phillip Plait of “Bad Astronomy”, Dr Karen Stollznow of the Point of Inquiry Podcast, Sharon Hill, Dr Petra Boynton, Brian Thompson of The Amateur Scientist podcast, Skeptic Blog’s Daniel Loxton and Yau-Man Chan, New York City Skeptics’ Lisa Bauer, UK Skeptic Dr Chris French, Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe’s Evan Bernstein and many others.
This book is a collection of reader-nominated blog posts, representing the best of a new wave of online skepticism. Collected over a year, it features a plethora of posts on topics ranging from the vaccination debate, paranormal claims, the ongoing creep of creationism into politics and education, conspiracy theories, homeopathy, outreach, all kinds of alternative medicine and even attempts to tackle the question “What is skepticism?” So many reasons to buy and read this book it’s scary!
