Cafe Skeptique: Cryonics
Cafe Skeptique is a discussion group that focuses on a range of topics within the realm of skepticism such as pseudo-science, alternative medicine, conspiracy theories, etc.
This month's Cafe Skeptique will focus on cryonics , the low-temperature preservation of humans and animals who can no longer be sustained by contemporary medicine, with the hope that healing and resuscitation may be possible in the future. While the conversation is at a basic level, if anyone has expertise in this area and will be attending please contact us at [masked], as we could use your help in stearing the discussion.
We are trying a new location: The Bean, 388 College Street , near the intersection of College and Bathurst. It is a quieter coffee shop which closes at 8 pm, so we will start earlier at 6 pm.
Cafe Skeptique is hosted by the Committee for the Advancement of Scientific Skepticism (CASS) , a subset of CFI.
The Committee for the Advancement of Scientific Skepticism (CASS) is a national, fast response team which critically examines scientific, technological and medical claims in public discourse. Working with our expert advisers we address factual inaccuracies and misinformation in public debates by promoting evidence-based science. To achieve these ends CASS will work within the infrastructure of CFI to co-ordinate campaigns with them and other interested parties.
Meetings are held every first and third Monday of each month at CFI Ontario headquarters.
If you would like to get involved with CASS please email Michael Kruse (Co-Chair) at [masked].
