Neil deGrasse Tyson - Science as a Way of Knowing (Allendale)

Neil deGrasse Tyson comes to Michigan! He will be speaking on "Science as a Way of Knowing." CFI-Michigan is proud to co-sponsor this event with Center for Inquiry–Grand Valley.

In his lecture, Dr. Tyson makes the case for science as a way to understand nature, and how the scientific process is a vital way to comprehend the world, discovering elusive answers to questions large and small.

Neil deGrasse Tyson was born and raised in New York City where he was educated in the public schools clear through his graduation from the Bronx High School of Science. Tyson went on to earn his BA in Physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia. Tyson’s professional research interests are broad, but include star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies, and the structure of our Milky Way.

Cost: FREE! Tickets will be available Friday, November 1 at 8am here.

We host local and national lecturers to speak on many different topics including: science, religion, philosophy, social issues, politics, atheism, humanism, agnosticism, skepticism, deism, evolution, morality and ethics, secularism, rationalism, psychology, and others.

    Tyson challenged the underlying premises of our legal system, emphasized the necessity of nuance, preparation and practice for communication, put a kindly face on his area of expertise, and did a pretty good boogie woogie while promoting critical thinking. He is a great ambassador for science in America and an excellent role model for my younger loved ones who are minorities.
    THANKS, N D T.

    Sorry I missed y'all, CFI'ers. I didn't find the table & my ticket...and took a student ticket in the "cheap seats". Then left early when N.D.T. came on with too much "let me entertain you" & too little astrophysics.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
