What's the talk about?
Most of us will come across the idea of creationism very rarely, but in parts of America where religion holds a lot more power things can be very different.
Aron Ra will be providing a window into what it's like to live somewhere where religion holds a lot more power than in the UK. Aron will be sharing his experiences from the states and speaking about creationism, religious culture and education.
Aron Ra is a secular activist advocating reason in education. He serves as Texas State Director of American Atheists, and hosts the Ra-Men podcast with Dan Arel and Mark Nebo.
Aron is also heading the Phylogeny Explorer Project, an effort to render the entire evolutionary tree of life as a navigable online encyclopedia. He is best known for his YouTube video series exposing the Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism.
Skeptics in the Pub is a place for inquisitive people of all ages to meet and converse in the High Wycombe area.
Skeptics are people who yearn to discover the truth behind extraordinary claims that people or groups may make, this can be in areas of alternative therapies, the paranormal, religion and faith, the afterlife or many other areas of life.
We make no claims to balance, and actively promote science, freedom of expression and secular humanism. This means we often end up talking about superstition, religious fundamentalism, censorship and conspiracy theory.
You are welcome to come along and just sit and listen to others, or if you are braver get stuck right in!
