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.

BBC The Big Questions with Kevin Friery @Therapeutic1

Well this is something great, Kev was asked on to another episode of BBC’s The Big Questions.
This time the questions were somewhat more controversial. Questions such as “Should Ian Brady be allowed to starve himself to death ?” Mr Brady is attempting to get himself declared sane so he can be transferred to a normal prison and then be left to effectively commit suicide by starvation without medical intervention. Another matter in Newham one of the poorest and most deprived areas in the country has an amazing 83 betting shops raised the question “Does the law need to be tougher on gambling ?”. And finally as Pederast Facilitator in Chief, Pope Francis calls for unity of belief and warns of the dangers [ha!] of deciding what to believe for yourself we have the question “Is it right to pick & mix religion ?”
Kev gets stuck into all of these questions and the discussions prove very interesting. I’ll leave you to decide about the person who thinks that absolutely no one should be able to choose the time and the manner of their death.
