Skeptics in the Pub UPDATE: One Year Anniversary Bonanza


Happy Birthday Us!

Happy Birthday Us!

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances our guest speaker for this week’s Skeptics in the Pub – Andy Lewis – has had to cancel. Perhaps there are quacks that desperately needed -ometering, or perhaps he had unexpected work commitments that he really couldn’t get out of (the latter). Andy’s assured us we’ll reschedule the event in the future, but it left us with a space in our calendar…

…and that’s when we remembered we’re one year old as of this Thursday! Hooray, hurrah, they grow up so fast, etc! So, to commemorate this wondrous occasion, and to fulfill our venue obligations, we thought we’d put on something of an anniversary bonanza – as skeptical pick’n’mix, if you will. The evening will consist of four short talks on a variety of topics, as well as a special live edition of our Skeptics with a K podcast.

First off, MSS blogger Allan Callister will be talking¬†Emotional Freedom Technique, something of an interest of his of late. Next, our great and glorious president Mike Hall will be examining Bad Logic, with examples from the world of religion. I’ll be taking to the mic next to explain How¬†PR Took Over Journalism, and where we go from here, before MSS member and PHD Tom Williamson will be telling us all What This Whole Science Thing Actually Is Anyway, how it works, how we know it works and why it’s the bees knees. And then it’s a live, audience-participation-y recording of Skeptics With A K.

So, join us for a jam-packed evening this Thursday from 8, at the Vines Hotel, Liverpool, L1.

    FYI, in looking for a birthday cake picture for this, I found this:

    Many apologies all.

    Unexpectedly, I will have to go over to Amsterdam tomorrow and will not be able to get back in time.

    Was looking forward to coming up to Liverpool – and I hope to see you soon.

    Cheers

    A

    @Marsh – That baby cake is more than creepy. It’s 11pm and I was going to bed, now I have to check if my room is locked.

    Happy birthday guys, best wishes for the future!
