Is This Thing On?

Don’t tell me Dave has managed to get this thing working after such a very looooooooonnnnng time.
Well this is a test to see if it is working.
And if this test has a successful outcome there shall be much rejoicing.
If not, then the wailing and gnashing of teeth will continue for a while to come.

Here we go …

Help Jonny Scaramanga

If you saw PHD student Jonny Scaramanga (don’t let the name or the  haircut put you off) at Hampshire Skeptics last night you’ll know all  about his research into Accelerated Christian Education (ACE)  Schools in the UK.  If you didn’t you can catch up here and here.

His efforts haven’t gone unnoticed by the CEE organisation and they  are out to prevent him from getting his message out: See here.  Jonny’s  only stated aim is to write about ACE from an academic  point of view quoting sources and being open and honest as possible.

Jonny’s PHD and tireless efforts have been mostly self funded including the purchase of the ACE course material which would  otherwise be hidden from review.

If you feel you can help Jonny in his work then please give generously via the Donate button on the Leaving Fundamentalism Page.

Winchester Science Festival is Almost Here!

Once again it’s nearly time for the amazing Winchester Science Festival.
This year you can see more of the wonder of science with fire and explosions and music and comedy and really wild things. On Saturday you can even see the physicist who discovered pulsars, the wonderful Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell giving a lecture entitled We Are All Star Dust and then being interviewed live right in front of you!
There will be talks including fire and explosions, mutants, nuclear reactors, photography, genetics, aviation, extreme environments, plumbers(!), brains and sex!
Not to mention three evenings of fantastic entertainment.
