West Metro Critical Thinking Club

TOPIC: "How to Train a Cat: The Evolution of the Human Animal"
An informal, idiosyncratic personal journey, with lots of pictures.
Ken Moses will talk about how the development of animal society led directly into human society, evolution, and his personal coping with autism. Along the way he'll make side trips to visit Darwin and Temple Grandin, reproduction and childbirth, the rodeo and the circus, and
several other somehow-relevant areas. His face-to-face experiences with animals often differ from the "conventional wisdom" of anthropologists, psychologists, and religionists, but are supported by recent sociobiological research.

SPEAKER: Ken Moses
This is the fourth presentation that Ken Moses has done for the Critical Thinkers -- the first was about Public Transportation, which he presented to all four Critical Thinking Clubs along with seven other organizations that requested it; at one of them, he warned about
infrastructure hazards only a few hours before the I-35 bridge collapse. The second and third topics were two different editions about the Abuse of the English Language. Ken had an illustrious 40-year career in the theatre and overlapped that with a second career
in Disability Advocacy and Services; he received awards in both careers. He has lived in Minnesota for the past 18 years, and is one of the Steering Committee and the de facto stage manager for the Twin Cities Critical Thinking Clubs in St. Paul, Minnetonka, and Stillwater.

    These topics seem to get repeated a lot, is this one going to be repeated as well some day?

      I hope so! This is the third time I've heard Ken speak, and the topic and gets better and better each time.

    I'm gonna leave around 11am so I can hit the vegan waffle party. I was flopping over which one to go to, so I compromised.
