Michael Mosley talk cancelled. Prof Jim Al-Khalili stepping into the breach for Winchester #SitP 02MAY13 @jimalkhalili Thanks Jim !

Firstly let me express my sincere thanks to Professor Jim Al-Khalili who has, at extremely short notice indeed, kindly agreed to speak at Winchester Skeptics in the Pub on the 2nd of May.
Dr. Michael Mosley is unable to make his talk due to unforeseen circumstances.
So I’m afraid we’ll have to wait until a later date to find out how we can all get a bit thinner and hopefully a little bit healthier too. Seems like I won’t be magically losing any weight this month ! Ho hum 😉
Apologies to all of you who were looking forward to hearing Dr. Mosley’s talk. I know a lot of you are very interested in what he has to say, me included. We will try and reschedule him later on in the year.

However we can find out what Professor Jim has been up to recently. He has a new book out called Paradox – The 9 Greatest Enigmas in Science that you can get from Amazon if you click the link. He’s also been having some interesting conversations with assorted homeopaths who think that quantum mechanics is they key to how homeopathy ‘works’.
Spoiler alert : Homeopathy is bollocks. It doesn’t work and it’s actually dangerous if used instead of actual medicine.

Whilst at the moment we don’t know what Jim’s talk will be about you can be certain that it’s going to be enlightening and entertaining. So make sure you’re there to give Jim the welcome he deserves and to find out the latest from one of the UK’s foremost physicists and the newly minted President of the British Humanist Association.

Thanks again to Jim Al-Khalili and we’ll see you a week on Thursday !

    Hi Dave,
    Do you know if Jim will bring any of his books along to sell? I’d like him to sign a couple of copies for me but don’t know if I need to buy them beforehand.

  • Hi Suzanne,
    P&G Wells should be there with plenty of Jim’s books for people to buy and I’m sure he won’t have a problem signing them afterwards.
    If you already have some you could bring them with you to get them signed too.
