The Psi Wars: Data and Communication vs Beliefs
Tuesday 29th September 2020. 7.30pm until 9.00pm. £5 online via ZOOM.
Parapsychology, as with all sciences, is forever observing and questioning its theories, methods, and data through the sceptical lens. However, how the media may portray research into ‘psi’ is another matter of serious concern, especially for today’s generation and how we learn. This talk will examine psi data, how this is communicated and how as humans we see this ‘evidence’ fitting within our worldviews.
Please join us at 7.30PM on Tuesday the 29th of September via ZOOM. Purchase a ticket below and you will receive an email with access. Save money by purchasing an autumn season pass here and get access to our full autumn programme.
