Escaping Hinduism – The holiest of cows!


Devesh Sharma who was born in India, and came to Australia during his early childhood. While juggling both the ‘untouchable’ Indian culture, and the modernity of Aussie culture, he had formed a view that religion was just a giant shady pyramid scheme.
But he couldn’t escape… mainly because he couldn’t pay rent as a child.
He has chanted all the mindless holy chants, and has received the equivalently mindless results!
And finally, he has ‘reincarnated’ himself, and understood that he was actually an atheist all along.
Come join Devesh for a light-hearted talk on the ‘peaceful’ scam of Hinduism.
Entry fee is $5.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members of Sydney Atheists. Annual Supporter membership is only $20. To become a supporter member, please go to:http://www.sydneyatheists.org/p/donations-and-membership.html
Our talk events are held at the Function Room at Club Redfern:
2nd Floor, 159 Redfern St  
REDFERN, NSW 2000

Synopsis: People have been historically put into boxes according to their sexuality, ability and marital status. Gay people were physically abused, people with disability were put into institutions and older single women were regarded with suspicion. We are now aware of the diversity of individuals and appreciate the spectrums that life presents.

Beth has had experience in working with and meeting a range of people including: single gay people with disability; married people using wheel chairs out of bed and having sex in bed; single guys on the Autism Spectrum using a sex worker; and people with intellectual disability living together and/or planning to marry.

Science & Technology: Deep Space Exploration Part 2


Our very own Thomas Kraemer holds a Master Degree in Aerospace Engineering.
As a Researcher for NASA at Princeton University’s Electric Propulsion and Plasma Dynamics Laboratory, Thomas was actively involved in the development of non-conventional Space Thruster Systems before returning to “down to earth” devices like Gas Turbines and Steam Turbines for Power Generation.
Topic:
In his Talk Thomas will outline the challenges and technological hurdles which we will need to overcome in order to reach other solar systems or even alien galaxies.
Utilising his broad knowledge of the topic, Thomas will focus on the newest developments in Space Thruster technology and speak about the energy systems required to power them, before he will venture into the unknown, explaining and exploring such bizarre ideas as “Thermo-Nuclear Propulsion” and “Beamed Core Anti-Matter Rockets.”
Prepare yourself for some weird stuff!
