A Very Merry Christmas and Thank You to You All

Well it’s Christmas again. Or should that be Winterval ? Yuletide ? Newtonmas ?
Yes ?
No ?
Who cares. If you’re happy and having fun with those who are important to you it doesn’t matter what you call it. As long as it’s not Homeopathymas of course ;-)
We have had another fantastic year of Winchester Skeptics and I’d like to convey our profound thanks to all of the speakers who have willingly given up their time in exchange for no pay to come and educate and entertain us through the year. Just so you know who they are, thank you to Andy Lewis, Martin S Taylor, Alan Henness, Neil Denny, John Sweeney, Oliver Meech, Peter Harrison, Stephen Law, Deborah Hyde, Robert Llewellyn and Iszy Lawrence. Thank you all so much.
And we would not be able to have such a good time without such a fantastic venue as the Winchester Discovery Centre and all of their amazingly helpful and knowledgeable staff. Thank you for having us.
But most of all our thanks goes out to the people without whom none of this would be worth doing. Who are they ? They’re you. Yes you. Those people who come along every time and those who pop in when they can and those who come just to see what it’s all about and those who want the sort of things like Winchester Skeptics going on in the world.
Thank you. Thank you all for coming. We hope you’ll like what you saw and want to come along again.
See you there.

**CANCELLED** Mormons visiting SkepTeaCafe This Saturday

**CANCELLED**  Due to unforeseen circumstances this event is cancelled.

The Mormons visit will be rescheduled in the New Year.
Representatives from the Winchester Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) are coming to SkepTeaCafe this Saturday 30th.

After our successful meeting last month with apologists from Winchester Family Church, this month is the turn of the Latter Day Saints.

Again there’s no agenda just a friendly chat with people of a different world view over coffee (for us).  If you’ve ever wondered what their philosophy is and what makes them tick, here’s your chance to find out.

10:30 am in the IT room @ Winchester Discovery Centre.

Robert Llewellyn: Electric Cars Are Rubbish. Aren’t They? 28NOV13 Winchester @SitP @bobbyllew

Skeptics in the (Thai) Curry House?

A few people have been commenting that Rhimjim’s is not so good lately, and getting a bit repetitive.

How about the Bangkok Brassiere, just across Jewry St. If people don’t go mad, cost should be about the same.

Or Mr So’s served an excellent Chinese meal to Clio, Malcolm Marina and I recently

Thoughts?

WinFam visiting SkepTeaCafe

This Saturday SkepTeaCafe welcomes it’s first guest.

SkepTeaCafe is the Saturday morning group that meets after Thursday Skeptics.  This week we’re excited to be visited by Jamie Franklin, the Student Worker at Winchester Family Church.  We reached out to the church after we attended one of their Sunday meetings and were fascinated by the experience.  We’ll be discussing everything from belief to evolution to philosophy.

Saturday 10:30am at the Winchester Discovery Centre.

Interview With a Vampire Expert. Deborah Hyde @jourdemayne at Winchester @SitP for #Halloween 31OCT13

The Creationists are coming! Again!

John MacKay is coming to Winchester Guildhall on Wednesday 2nd Oct at 7:15.

John MacKay

John MacKay

John MacKay is the International Director of Creation Research a Young Earth Creationist propaganda mill based in Australia.  Mackay has been around for 30 years and was previously associated with Ken Ham.  His background is in Geology and rejects all evidence of an old earth and evolution.  Nowadays he goes around selling his books and DVDs to an unsuspecting audience.

His talk will be on:

  1. God’s signature in Creation – Allah or Christ?
  2. The Rocks cry out!

Let’s give him a warm Skeptical welcome to our City and remind him that there’s no such thing as a free lunch.  As previous, the other main motivation is to speak to the other attendees and let them know that Skepticism isn’t a dirty word and Skeptics don’t eat babies.

If you’re free we’ll meet at 6:45 in Pitcher & Piano, a few doors down from The Guildhall.
