The Association for Science and Reason (Skeptics Canada) Monthly Meetup

  • Dec 20, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Toronto Skeptics in the Pub Event:  It's that time of year again, so Dave Bailey will be taking an illustrated skeptical view of some modern traditions and beliefs. You may come away doubting the possibility of flying reindeer, high-speed gift distribution, and some of the more enduring images and beliefs we have grown up with. Then, because we have questioned aviating cervids, we shall also delve into why dragons and flying horses are not plausible. (The answer is probably not what you think it is)

Join us and have a nice, enjoyable time with a friendly group of skeptically minded people. We'll be at our usual venue, the Fox and Fiddle, just across from Wellesley Subway station. To find us, tell the wait staff you are looking for the Skeptics. We should be on the 3rd Floor.

The Association for Science and Reason (formerly Skeptics Canada) (www.scienceandreason.ca) has opened its regular monthly dinner to interested Meetup members, and it has been a lot of fun. Heated discussion, hot food, good company--a great way to spend the evening without losing I.Q. points.

As usual, don't be put off by the small number of people signing up through Meetup. Most of the regulars do not respond, they just show up. We typically have between 30 and 50 attendees.

    I should have told my dad about the Tooth Fairy because he tended to give more, not knowing better.

    Show me Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy and I'll believe! Neither ever gave me ANYTHING and my mother once threw money at me when I explained that I'm supposed to find money under my pillow the morning after I lose a tooth. I didn't believe in the Tooth Fairy as a child, but it's nice to go with tradition to get a little money. Actually, my mother gave me more than I was asking for, just to get rid of me because she was busy!
