- The latest Rationally Speaking podcast episode is now available. This week’s special guest is Brendan Nyhan discusses why false beliefs refuse to die.
- For the third year in a row, Brooklyn’s high-tech Gravesend Inn haunted attraction at NYC College of Technology is welcoming NYC Skeptics. This year, in addition to a backstage tour with systems designer John Huntington, NYC Skeptics attendees are invited to participate in a skeptical psychological research study! The festivities will take place on Saturday October 30, 2010 at 6PM. For more information click here.
- This year NYC Skeptics is proud to sponsor our second SkeptiCamp — an “open” skeptical and scientific conference. The format differs from a traditional conference in that the attendees themselves also function as presenters. This year we will have more space, more presenters, and more fun! We again expect to have a full house of attendees and we encourage you to register early, as we cannot guarantee tickets will be available at the door. This year’s SkeptiCamp will take place on December 4, 2010 from 10AM-6PM. Registration is $15 and directly helps cover the costs of the conference. Register today!
- In case you haven’t heard, President Obama will soon be appearing on Mythbusters to promote science education. AWESOME!
