After having a lively discussion about the European Revolutions of the 19th
century, the group has decided to remain in this fascinating time period for a
while longer. But this time, instead of talking about wars and revolutions and
changes in government, we’ll talk about science and the amazing progress made
between 1800 and 1900.
Amazing insights such as the discovery of the cell as a building block of all living
things, the discovery of germs as a cause of infectious disease, the advances n
thermodynamics and many other discoveries changed our understanding of the
world and our place in relation to it.
While we’re at it, we can revisit our old friend Darwin and examine take how his
ideas about evolution changed people’s view of themselves as animal rather than
We keep the same rules as always: Don’t speak over one another, stick to the
topic and please don’t talk about sports or celebrities! Also, please bring a snack
to share. (Fruits, veggies and other healthy snacks are especially appreciated).
Finally, kindly put $2 in the donation can to cover the cost of running this group.
