We should question what we are praying for. Is praying all that bad? Watch to find out. (If you think this is important, please share & like the page) ... See MoreSee Less

Why Do YOU Pray? A lot of people pray for materials, parking spots and some even for other people. But what is the benefit and/or detriment to that? Watch to find out.

Skeptical Salon: Here Be Dragons by Dennis McCarthy

April 27, 2017, 7:30pm - April 27, 2017, 10:30pm

Our Salon is back in the South Loop for April! We'll be reading Here Be Dragons: How the Study of Animal and Plant Distributions Revolutionized Our Views of Life and Earth by Dennis McCarthy. www.goodreads.com/book/show/7119522-here-be-dragons From Goodreads: "Why do we find polar bears only in the Arctic and penguins only in the Antarctic? Why are marsupials found only in Australia and South America? In a book that Science News called "fascinating and revelatory," Dennis McCarthy tells a story that encompasses two great, insightful theories that together explain the strange patterns of life across the world--evolution and plate tectonics. We find animals and plants where we do because, over time, the continents have moved, separating and uniting in a long, slow dance; because sea levels have risen, cutting off one bit of land from another; because new and barren volcanic islands have risen up from the sea; and because animals and plants vary greatly in their ability to travel, and separation causes the formation of new species. This is the story of how life has responded to, and has in turn altered, the ever-changing Earth. And it includes many fascinating tales--of pygmy mammoths and elephant birds and of radical ideas by bold young scientists." (Please note: there is another book titled Here Be Dragons, it's by David Koerner and about extraterrestrial life. That's NOT the book we're reading this month, so make sure you get the one by Dennis McCarthy.) Please note: our Skeptical Salons are held in private residences. This one is near the Chinatown Red Line stop; there is a flight of stairs to get in, and a cat. Address is on the Meetup event page: www.meetup.com/Chicago-Skeptics/events/238976836/
