Details

Dinner, socializing, and a discussion on the evening's topic.

This Tuesday the Skeptics' meetup will feature J. Anderson Thomson coming to talk with us on "The One True religion: song, dance, and trance". Andy is a trustee of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, author of "Why We Believe in Gods: A concise guide to the science of faith", and has been a featured speaker at several atheist conferences where which he has spoken about his theories on the cognitive origins of religious belief. He works as a staff psychiatrist for Counseling and Psychological Services at the University of Virginia Student Health Center, as well as the University of Virginia's Institute for Law, Psychiatry and Public Policy; and also has his own private practice, as well as working as a forensic psychiatrist for Region Ten Community Services.

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE FROM THE USUAL TUESDAY VENUE. Upstairs at West Main seems likely to work better than Ming for this one.
