Belfast Skeptics in the Pub – Event 3
I don’t think any of us could have predicted how well the last event could have gone. David Meade, the mindreader, spoke to us for hours about psychic “powers”, magic tricks and the art of deception. He demonstrated how to bend spoons, how to read minds and how to predict the lottery numbers. Ok, so I made the last part up, but he was pretty amazing overall. The bar has been set very high.
However, we must proceed and introduce our next speaker! We have the pleasure of hosting a talk by Dr. Lesley Storey of Queen’s University, Belfast. Lesley is a lecturer in psychology and she will be talking to us about myths in popular psychology. This talk will be especially interesting as hopefully it will shed some light on why we believe things that are not true.
Check here for the Eventbrite page to register for the event. It’s free and will give us an idea of the numbers of people intending to attend.
