Darwin: Very gradual change we can believe in
Darwin: Very gradual change we can believe in

Darwin Day falls on February 12th. Which is also  Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. But we decided to celebrate Darwin.

For our second annual Darwin Day, we have a lot of things planned. We’ve got a presentation, possibly a video and our Games Master has a new game that everyone can participate in!

Remember that we are in our new location. We’re meeting at Hayden’s Grill and Bar. It’s not far from Ginger but plan accordingly.

Come and join us for lively discussion, drinks, dinner and debate! This is a good event for Skeptics of Michigan to come together and discuss local, national, worldwide items affecting skeptics. All are welcome to listen and participate.

We also have special guests and speakers that contribute to the conversation and/or debate.

Please be sure to RSVP so I know how many are coming. You can also RSVP on Facebook.  That way I can modify the reservation if necessary.

I hope to see you all there!

No Get Together for October… Dawkins Instead!

The Magic of Reality Book Cover
The Magic of Reality: How We Know What’s Really True

Our monthly Get together is not going to be held this month. There is small scheduling conflict. Richard Dawkins is going to be in town on tour for his new book, The Magic of Reality: How We Know What’s Really True. I just can’t compete with that…

So instead we are going to go see him speak on his new book. this is an all ages event since his new book is geared towards children and teens so please bring them along!

Filled with clever thought experiments, dazzling pictures, and jaw-dropping facts, this book is for anyone interested in the world around them. Richard will be reading from his new book and answering questions, along with a book signing. Following that, there will be ice cream social and science experiments for the kids to try!

We’ve posted a meetup event for organizing and carpooling. Please register and post there if you are interested.

Seating is limited and is first come, first serve. You need to pre-register here for tickets to the event which guarantee you a place.  This is going to be a great event and I look forward to seeing you all there!

The July Get Together is Coming Up

This Saturday, July 9th will be our Monthly Get Together.

It’s also our one year anniversary! It’s hard to believe we’ve been doing this for a year now. Over the past year we’ve had quite a few amazing guests come out and give some pretty amazing presentations. We’ve also had some awesome celebrations. Just a few months ago was our End of the World Party where we celebrated the rapture, which strangely enough did not come. We also had our Darwin day celebration and and great Michigan UFO Hunt.

We’ve got some great things lined up for the next year. So be sure to keep coming back. You never know what we are going to have in store.

Someone seems to let it slip that my birthday is also that month. It also seems that the someone that let it slip was me. Both are true. This month I am going to be [age redacted] this year. So be sure to come on out and help me celebrate both mine and Michigan Skeptic’s birthdays!

So be sure to RSVP for the Get Together this Saturday. You can let me know you are coming by either going on to out Meetup Page or by our Facebook page.

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday!
