Accepting the Absurd

"A Reason for Reason" skeptical speaker series, in association with CFI, is BACK...

Please join us and tell fellow skeptics!

Our current understanding of the universe incorporates ideas that seem absurd: Space is expanding and accelerating. Most of the “stuff” of the universe isn't the protons and neutrons that a generation was taught to believe.

Why does science take these things seriously? This talk will explain the evidence and thought process that have forced a fundamental re-examination of our understanding of the nature of our universe. The result is both strange and deeply satisfying.
