Lincoln Skeptics in the Pub

Lincoln Curiosity Presents...

News and Updates:

Jonny Scaramanga - April 7th. Tickets available now!

Jonny Scaramanga attended a fundamentalist Christian school in the '90s where he learned that the Loch Ness Monster disproved evolution, God disapproved of the NHS, and homosexuals were an abomination to God. He talks about what students learn in these schools today, and what we should do when the parent's right to freedom of religion conflicts with the child's right to a sound education.

Jonny is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Education, where he is researching student experiences in Britain's 50 Accelerated Christian Education schools. He has written for the Guardian, the Times Education Supplement, New Statesman, AlterNet, Salon, New Humanist, and Liberal Conspiracy. His broadcast appearances include BBC Radio 4, BBC2, BBC local radio, and Channel 4's 4Thought TV.

Question, Explore, Discover.

QED is a two-day science and skepticism convention taking place at the Palace Hotel in Manchester on the 12th-13th April 2014.

Fantastic speakers from the worlds of science and entertainment will be joining us for a weekend celebration of science, reason and critical thinking.

QED is organised by North West Skeptical Events Ltd, a volunteer-owned non-profit organisation. We aim for QED to break even and any surplus is reinvested in future events or donated to good causes. None of the organisers benefit financially from QED, we give our time and effort for free because we love doing this.
