Readers who hang out in the Southwestern quadrant of the U.S. should be aware of the lecture series at Caltech sponsored by the Skeptic’s Society. Past speakers include such luminaries as Richard Dawkins and Lisa Randall; future highlights include a debate between Frank Tipler and Lawrence Krauss on “Can Physics Prove God and Christianity?” That should be, how shall we say, somewhat surreal.
This Sunday at 2:00 there is a lecture on The Physics of Pouty Teenagers Fighting Vampires, or something like that. Apparently there is even a book along those lines. I’m too high-minded to think about such things myself, but I’ll probably go to this lecture, because the speaker looks like a total babe.
