An Evening with Lawrence Krauss, Cosmologist

Has Science Buried God? Lawrence Krauss presents “The Greatest Story Ever Told … So Far.” Join the USF Humanities Institute at 6pm on Tuesday, November 12th in the Oval Theater of the Marshall Student Center as we welcome physicist and cosmologist Lawrence Krauss, who argues that “the REAL story of the Universe” is much more exciting than any set of religious myths. “It is a tale ripe with drama and surprise, and will take us from Plato to the discovery of the Higgs Boson.” In his talk, he discusses the implications of key scientific discoveries for fundamental understanding of space, time, and Origins, using “the growing evidence that our existence is capricious, with no need for supernatural shenanigans to create us, or protect us in the future.” (Continue Reading About Dr. Krauss)

The lecture is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. A book signing will follow the presentation. Please note that parking permits are required at all times when parking at USF. Guests may download a visitor's parking map to locate the nearest visitor's lots.

Please email Liz Kicak at the Humanities Institute with questions or disability accommodations or call (813) 974-3657.

The event is co-sponsored by the USF Departments of Physics, Chemistry, and Science Education, and ResearchOne.

    Hey, is anyone carpooling? I would be interested in chipping in a generous amount of cash in return for a ride.

    I'm physically wore out from a recent trip to Tampa this weekend and have to R&R before taking on another long distance trip. I'm a disabled vet waiting on corrective surgery next month, and cannot stay off my pain meds for too long to be able to drive. See Ya'll at the bonfire! Safe Journey to all.

    If anyone would like to carpool, I'll be leaving from UCF at about 3 PM.

      Since I'm new to this group and think it is poor judgment to let strangers in your car, I wouldn't mind following you from UCF if you know where we are going.

      I have GPS in my car, and I'd be fine with you following me :)

    I won't miss this event. Krauss has been a voice for reason and science , this event should be interesting.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
