Michael Shermer: The Science of Good & Evil - Free Talk!

Posted 3/9/11 at 5:27 PM by Sam

SURE is glad to be hosting a talk by Michael Shermer! You may have heard of him; he's quite well known in skeptic circles as being the founding editor of Skeptic Magazine (skeptic.com) and the executive director of the Skeptics Society. He is also a monthly columnist for Scientific American, the host of the Skeptics Distinguished Science Lecture Series at Caltech, and Adjunct Professor of Economics at Claremont Graduate University.

Dr. Shermer will be coming to UCSB to give a talk called The Science of Good & Evil, Why People Cheat, Gossip, Share, Care, and Follow the Golden Rule, which will examine the evolutionary origins of morality and how to be good without God.

We are happy to be able to present the talk completely FREE OF CHARGE! That's right... free. Although we might have some fundraising going on (buy our baked goods if we have them!).

The talk will take place on April 5th at 6:30pm, in Corwin Pavilion on the UCSB campus (that's the large hall attached to the UCen - here's a map: goo.gl/maps/CtpU).

Once again, the event:
