Krauss Lecture: Science Fact or Fiction?

OK, first of all, I did not realize that there is such a thing as a "Liberal Arts College for Men". But apparently, this Wabash College is one such thing.

Secondly, how did they managed to snag a big fish like this? Lawrence Krauss will be giving a public seminar at this college this coming Monday. And it's a doozy, folks! I'd pay money to hear this!

Wabash College will host Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar, Lawrence Krauss, who will give a talk on "Science, Non-Science, and Nonsense: From Aliens to Creationism" at 8 p.m. Monday, January 28, in Room 101 (Lovell Lecture Room) in Baxter Hall.

But wait, there's more! He's also giving another talk the next day!

In addition to his Monday evening talk, Krauss will give a noon time talk on Tuesday, January 29, on "Einstein’s Biggest Blunder?: A Cosmic Mystery Story." The talk will take place in Baxter Hall, room 101.

So if you're anywhere near Crawfordsville, Indiana early next week, you might want to consider attending either or both of these. I don't know how conservative the community of Crawfordsville, IN is, but this lecture can easily stir up a lot of dust! :)
