Upcoming Meetings

Saturday, October 20, 2018 - The Evolution of Creationism

Time: 2:00 PM
Location: Community College of Philadelphia, Room C2-28 Details
Speaker: Eric Krieg
Come and learn about the survival of the fittest competing deistic creation models. This story will go from ancient tribal and polytheistic myths to more highly adapted successful Abrahamic creationist explanations. We'll examine their collision with real Science, politics and even the legal system.

Eric Krieg is a founding member and past president of PhACT, and long time supporter of the skeptical movement. His investigation of fringe claims has landed him on some TV shows including Dateline. He is a father of 3 and an electrical engineer using real Science to develop products including microprocessor controls for satellite communications robotics and radar imaging.
 1975 Eric viewed a young earth creationist movie with his high school youth group and ended up being one of them for the next 2 or 3 hours. A lot has changed.

Time: 2:00 PM
Location: Community College of Philadelphia, Room C2-28 Details
Speaker: Linda Zimmerman
