  • Race and Genetics: Rob DeSalle on his book "Troublesome Science"
    *PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE* It's well established that all humans today, wherever they live, belong to one single species. Yet even many people who claim to abhor racism take for granted that human “races” have a biological reality. Rob DeSalle will speak to us about his book "Troublesome Science," which aims to provide a forceful critique of how scientific tools have been misused to uphold misguided racial categorizations. Rob DeSalle is a Curator at the American Museum of Natural History. He is affiliated with the AMNH Division of Invertebrate Zoology and the Division of Anthropology and works at the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics, where he leads a group of researchers working on molecular systematics, molecular evolution, population and conservation genetics, and evolutionary genomics of a wide array of life forms ranging from viruses, bacteria, corals, and plants, to all kinds of insects, reptiles, mammals and humans. Brooklyn Commons features a wide selection of coffee, food, desserts, beer, and wine. http://thecommonsbrooklyn.org

  • Your body is a mess: Nathan Lents on his book "Human Errors"
    We humans like to think of ourselves as highly evolved creatures, but if we are supposedly evolution’s greatest creation, why do we have such bad knees? Why do we catch head colds so often—two hundred times more often than a dog does? How come our wrists have so many useless bones? Why is the vast majority of our genetic code pointless? And are we really supposed to swallow and breathe through the same narrow tube? Surely there’s been some kind of mistake. As professor of biology, Nathan H. Lents explains how our evolutionary history is nothing if not a litany of mistakes, a big pile of compromises. But that's also a testament to our greatness -- humans have so many design flaws precisely because we are very, very good at getting around them.

    Introducing SpeedyCamp NYC 2018! SpeedyCamp is a fast-paced open conference on science and skepticism. Six people will give ten minute long presentations, along with 5 minutes of Q&A, and YOU can be one of them! If you are familiar with the older SkeptiCamp and BarCamp events, this like that, but speedier! (No, this is NOT replacing SkeptiCamp. We are still planning to hold our larger SkeptiCamp NYC 2018 event towards the end of the year.) Visit this site to see the latest speaker list. Contact [masked] if you would like to be on the speaker list. No credentials required, but your topic must have something to do with science and/or skepticism. But, do it fast!! The first 6 to request a slot will get them! For insights on how to prepare, you can read our SkeptiCamp Session Leader's Guide: (But, remember: You only get 10 minutes, NOT 25!) Brooklyn Commons features a wide selection of coffee, food, desserts, beer, and wine. http://thecommonsbrooklyn.org
