The Sacramento Area Skeptics are proud to co-host a panel on pseudoscience with the Atheists and Other Freethinkers.
Join us for a fun discussion on pseudoscience - what is it and how do we and others fall for it? Pseudoscience (voodoo science, junk science, or flim flam) can take many forms: astrology, intelligent design/creationism, conspiracy theories, cryptozoology, etc. Each of these, in addition to being silly can be dangerous. Shane Trimmer, President of the Sacramento Area Skeptics will host an amazing group of panelists which include: Glenn Branch, Deputy Director of the National Center for Science Education(NCSE); Liam McDaid, Sacramento City College professor of astronomy; Sarah Strand, CSUS professor of neuroscience; Robert Todd Carroll, author of the Skeptic's Dictionary; and Frank Mosher, Board Member and Assistant Organizer with the Sacramento Area Skeptics.
Location : Sierra II Community Center - Room 10,[masked]th Street, Sacramento
