Our next topic for 10/09/08 will be:
The End of the World!!!
To celebrate the first attempt to circulate a beam through the C.E.R.N. Large Hadron Collider scheduled for 10 September, we will be asking exactly how nigh are the “end times”?
We will discuss at prophesies of doom throughout history and if the failure of these could potentially have created a “boy who cried wolf” type cultural mood, particularly in regards to climate change?
What are our greatest and most likely threats and is it possible to avoid them?
We will be looking at “The Last Days on Earth” a 20/20 science fiction special which aired on the ABC in August 2006 and has been aired on The History Channel.
Should be a really interesting night and I hope you can all make it and as always feel free to bring anyone who might be interested.
As always we meet at 6pm in room 1.14 of the G23 Multi-media Building and snacks will be provided again!
Also don’t forget anyone is welcome to contribute to our wordpress blog at https://gussf.wordpress.com/ and meet our international supporters and friends on the facebook site http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6117798570.
Plus last but not least we have our new meet-up page at http://skeptics.meetup.com/185/ which will hopefully open up our group to the broader community.
Hope to see you Wednesday,
