The Griffith University Society for Skeptics and Freethinkers invite you (yes, you) to check out our upcoming event.
This Wednesday the 21st of May we are presenting our first guest speaker of the year, Richard Saunders. Richard is Vice President of Australian Skeptics http://www.skeptics.com.au/ and founder of Mystery Investigators http://www.mysteryinvestigators.com/richard/ and is taking the time to fly up from Sydney to give a presentation for us. The very same presentation in fact that he will give at James Randi’s Amazing Meeting 6 in Los Vegas this June, sharing the floor with Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, PZ Myers, Matthew Chapman, and Sharon Begley, Phil Plait (the Bad Astronomer), Penn & Teller, Dr. Richard Wiseman, Dr. Michael Shermer, Adam Savage (from the Mythbusters), Steve Novella, and many more!
Richard has appeared on channel nine’s “A Current Affair” and channel seven’s “Sunrise” program multiple times in his role as a skeptic, debunking such topics as so called psychic detectives, ghosts, crop circles and more. Richard also runs the Tank vodcast in which our group has featured and I currently report for.
Admission is free for members of the GUSSF and a gold coin donation is all that is asked of anyone else who would like to come so feel free to invite/coerce/ drag as many people as you like both from on campus and of course the wider community, the more the merrier!
The event starts at 6.30pm in G17, lecture theatre 3 of the Gold Coast campus http://www.griffith.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0006/51549/gold-coast-buildings-january-2008.pdf
