This is not a CFI event, but an event at the American Museum of Natural History in New York which I think will be of very real interest to all CFI members.

To get tickets ($12 or $10 for members/students) call museum reservations at: 212.769.5200

As they say, "Don’t miss it!"

:wink:

SPECIAL TUESDAY:
SCIENCE AND THE SEARCH FOR GOD
November 14 █ 6:30pm

In 1985, the late astrophysicist Carl Sagan delivered a series of
public lectures on the search for spirituality in an age of science. 
For the first time, these lectures have been published in the newly
released book, The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal
View of the Search for God.  Join us for what is sure to be a
memorable evening, as Neil deGrasse Tyson leads a candid discussion
about Carl Sagan’s philosophy with the book╠s editor, Sagan╠s window
and collaborator Ann Druyan, as well as their long-time friend and
colleague Steven Soter.

I saw Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Ann Druyan tonight at the Science & Art Festival. The talk was called A Scientist Goes to the Movies and they discussed key scenes from the movie Contact.  I really enjoyed the talk.  And it was free!

Now, I have to see the movie.  :oops:

Fiction is fun, but facts are fundamental.
