  • Skeptics not in a pub!
    • What we'll do Hi all This is a Skeptics NOT IN a pub. Unfortunately, our usual venue - The Juice Bar - has now closed its doors and is shut, for the long term, it would seem. We are looking for a new venue - but any suggestions will be gladly accepted. Anyway, we have an international speaker this month. In conjunction with the NZ Association of Rationalists and Humanists (NZARH), we present John Richards from the UK. John is a board member of Atheist Alliance International, which is currently undergoing some "regeneration" and he'd like to tell us about all the goings-on. Because we're at Rationalist House, there is no beer, but we'll hopefully have some refreshments provided. It's a fairly cramped space so we really have to limit the numbers to under 50 people - so be in early. See you there! • What to bring • Important to know

  • Conference report back
    This event was canceled.
  • Pain is just a French word for bread
    This month we have a speaker, Paul Lagerman AKA The Naked Physio. He'll give a talk about how we can reconcile our understanding of pain and the myths around movement through analysis of the evidence. This should be an interesting departure from the previous discussions centering around Christianity and American Politics! See you all there.

  • A fortunate universe - Life in a finely-tuned cosmos
    Dr Luke Barnes is a postdoctoral researcher at the Sydney Institute for Astronomy, University of Sydney. He works on cosmology, galaxy formation, and the fine-tuning of the universe for life. He's been invited here to speak at various churches so is definitely going to be pushing "fine-tuning" as the result of some designer, it would appear. Anyway, come along to hear what he has to say, and for some, no doubt, lively discussion.
