Visit Calvary Chapel in an open discussion on seeking truth.

Calvary Chapel, Signal Hill, has invited Backyard Skeptics to join them in a discussion of Einstein's theory of relativity.  Yes - I know - what is a church doing discussing science?!   There will be some philosophers I know quite well in this group and are very knowledgeable about physics, so this should be an interesting discussion.

Thursday, March 7th 4:00 pm An introduction to Einstein's theory of relativity. They will be starting with the Michelson and Morley experiment; deriving the Lorentz transformation (the simple way -- using graphics instead of math);  roughing in a model for the shape of time, space, and the universe, using special relativity; explaining general relativity using some thought experiments; adjusting the shape of the preliminary S.R. universe to take G.R. into account ... and always speculating on how this must constrain our understanding of who/what God must and must not be like.

Please be considerate and respectful at all times.  I would like to see a rational discussion (if possible) without any emotional demonstrations.

Dinner to be afterward at Black Bear Diner 1898 E. Willow Street, Signal Hill [masked]http://blackbeardiner.com/
