Polaris 25 - The Skeptical Track


Polaris 25 will take place this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (July 15-17) at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North in Richmond Hill, just north of Toronto. It will celebrate the 45th anniversary of Star Trek. Three of the actors from Stargate SG-1/Stargate Atlantis will be there—that's my favorite TV series (now in re-runs).

The Centre For Inquiry and its Committee for the Advancement of Scientific Skepticism (CASS) has been invited to present a Skeptical Track at the convention. The four speakers are ....
  • Me (Larry Moran): "What’s the Difference Between Science and Science Fiction?"

  • Jeffrey Shallit: "Misinformation Theory: How Creationists Abuse Mathematics."

  • Chris Hassall: "The Evolution of Superstition: People, PCs and Pigeons."

  • Alex Manafu: "Could Science Prove the Existence of God? (Or, Must Science Be Naturalistic?)"
For more information see Jeffrey Shallit's blog Recursivity: See me at Polaris 2011 in Toronto - July 16 and Michael Kruse's blog at Skeptic North: Skeptical Track at Polaris 25.
