Science and Skepticism Book Discussion: 2 TODAY at Biddle’s Escape


Where: Biddle’s Escape (401 Biddle Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15221)

When: 2 TODAY

RSVP at: http://www.meetup.com/Steel-City-Skeptics/events/147746582/

Very fun discussion today with some new voices heard.  Several books were suggested as follow-ups for the interested:  “The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind” by Julian Jaynes and “1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus” by Charles C. Mann 

We will meet at Biddle’s Escape again next month to discuss “The Better Angels of Our Nature” by Steven Pinker.  This is a lengthy book about the history of human violence>  It has been suggested you can read the end of the book without reading all the details about the horrors of people’s rotten treatment of other people.  The conclusions should give us all a reason to be thankful.

For December we will read “ABOMINABLE SCIENCE!” BY DANIEL LOXTON AND DONALD R. PROTHERO http://shop.skeptic.c…
