October Talks

Sydney Atheists October Talks were preceded by a short video put together by Nick to pay tribute to Carl Sagan on the latter's birthday. This was a fitting introduction to our two exceptional speakers, Wade Fairclough and Professor Geraint Lewis.
Wade highlighted the importance of science in the lives of the billions of people on earth and contrasted religious believer's acceptance and exploitation of all that science has given us with their condemnation of science when presented with evidence that runs counter to their creed.
Professor Geraint Lewis had the audience captivated by his descriptions of the cosmos. He illustrated how galaxies, including our own Milky Way have been built, merged and dismembered. Geraint showed us why the Milky Way is a cannibal. He elegantly and humorously informed the audience of the beginnings of the universe, its gyrations and its likely end.
Sydney Atheists would like to thank Wade and Geraint for two excellent and informative presentations
