Consider the greatest mysteries of all time: the creation of the universe (the "Big Bang"), the creation of the solar system, the start of life on Earth (the "little bang"), the evolution and migration of the human species, why Jews consider themselves God's chosen people, the birth and spread of Christianity, and how humans will survive the consequences of overpopulation, resource depletion, and global warming. These and any number of lesser questions have scientific and mythological explanations.
The Skeptics Shows is about becoming aware of the questions and responses. The first meeting will feature a documentary called "The Incredible Journey of Crude Oil," a documentary produced by the Australian Broadcasting Company. The movie will walk us through the first uses of oil and the exponential increase in demand in the 20th century. It is provided by Randy Bancroft. If you have never wondered about life after oil, now might be a good time to start.
