Meet-Up (10/27) – “Evolution and Human Behavior”

The Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics are having a meet-up on Saturday, October 27th from 4:00 to 7:00pm at the Colonial Lanes/Cubs A.C. restaurant. We'll be in the back room located down the short hallway past the bar.

Our special guest will be Dr. Tom Shellberg, retired professor of biology at Henry Ford Community College.  Tom is the author of Choosy Women and Cheating Men: Evolution and Human Behavior. He has also written a paper for Human Ethology Bulletin (page 9).  He was also featured on an episode of Atheists Speak Up! which is produced by the Michigan Atheists (youtube).

The first part of the event will be for general socializing and ordering refreshments. After which, there will be some announcements, and then there will be an informal conversation about evolution, natural selection, and human behavior.

As a courtesy to the host and restaurant staff, please RSVP for you and other guests that you are bringing, so that I can provide an accurate tally.  Thanks!

    Interesting speaker who not only did a good job explaining his topic, and answering questions, but also in engaging the audience in conversation. A very nice give and take.

    A very interesting topic and a great presenter! Unfortunately I couldn't stay until the end. I hope to be able to attend meetups on silmilar subjects in the future.

    Would love to go, fascinating subject. But I will be at a charity "100 Houses" event to rebuild and make Detroit safer. Www.drmm.org for details.
