NYC Skeptics Public Lecture Series presents A Skeptic’s Guide to String Theory with George Musser, author of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to String Theory,” and his special guest John Rennie

When: Saturday November 1st @ 1:00 PM
Where: Shetler Annex
        939 8th Ave. Suite 204 (at 55th St.)

Description: Scientific American editor and writer George Musser will discuss his book “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to String Theory,” the String Wars, and verifiability in science. Musser will also address how string theory helps illuminate skeptical issues, such as claims that quantum fields could be the “energy fields” of traditional Chinese medicine. Musser and Scientific American Editor-in-Chief John Rennie will then offer their thoughts on the the nature of science and the general relevance of basic physics to skepticism.
