Combine your hunger for the truth with a chicken parma! Combine your thirst for knowledge with a pot of beer, a glass of wine or a lovely cup of tea! The Mordi Skeptics in the Pub is for those who enjoy exploring things underpinned by science, evidence and reason in a social setting. Big ideas are presented and discussed from a rational and logical perspective. We also spend time honing our 'bulldust barometers' - detecting the fallacious and debunking the superstitious.
Sample topics include astronomy, internet censorship, education, euthanasia, vaccination, nuclear energy, climate change denial, religious and non-religious beliefs, 'alternative' medicine, rationality, logical fallacies, anything science-based and any aspect of society that is being undermined by nonsense but should be illuminated by evidence.
All you need to join the group is a questioning mind, good humour and a sociable disposition. And $4 per meeting. The mob is eclectic, difficult to categorise and mostly quite presentable. Come early for dinner in Jacks Restaurant at 6.15 pm or just come for the formal(ish) part at 7:30pm.
We meet on the first Tuesday night of every month at the Mordialloc Sporting Club. The formal presentation is at 7.30 pm. You will need to join and RSVP via the Mordi Skeptics MeetUp site.
