Polaris 25 will take place this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (July 15-17) at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North in Richmond Hill, just north of Toronto. It will celebrate the 45th anniversary of Star Trek. Three of the actors from Stargate SG-1/Stargate Atlantis will be there—that's my favorite TV series (now in re-runs).
The Centre For Inquiry and its Committee for the Advancement of Scientific Skepticism (CASS) has been invited to present a Skeptical Track at the convention. The four speakers are ....
- Me (Larry Moran): "What’s the Difference Between Science and Science Fiction?"
- Jeffrey Shallit: "Misinformation Theory: How Creationists Abuse Mathematics."
- Chris Hassall: "The Evolution of Superstition: People, PCs and Pigeons."
