18:00 Category: LSS - Public event (not at Secular Hall)[18:30] LSS: Michael Marshall - Lifting the Lid on pseudoscience
Welcome back! It seems a long time since Bruce Wakley gave us his talk about CRIL, the Campaign to Reopen the Ivanhoe Line - (http://lsec.org.uk/calendar/view_entry.php?id=2703). We open our summer season with: "Lifting the Lid: Ongoing adventures in the world of pseudoscience" with Michael Marshall. It’s easy to think of pseudoscience existing in a glass case at a museum – something to be examined and critiqued from a safe distance, but not something to touch and to play with. Using examples taken from his own personal experiences in skepticism, Michael Marshall will show what happens when you begin to crack the surface of the pseudosciences that surround us – revealing the surprising, sometimes-shocking and often-comic adventures that lie beneath. Michael Marshall is the Project Director of the Good Thinking Society (https://goodthinkingsociety.org), the President of the Merseyside Skeptics Society (http://www.merseysideskeptics.org.uk/) and the Editor of The Skeptic magazine (https://www.skeptic.org.uk). He regularly speaks with proponents of pseudoscience for the Be Reasonable podcast (https://podcastaddict.com/podcast/21152). His work has seen him organising international homeopathy protests, going undercover to expose psychics and quack medics, and co-founding the popular QED conference. He has written for the Guardian, The Times, New Scientist and New Statesman. All welcome - admission free. You are welcome to participate for free, but will need the joining information in our weekly email.
