- Kalispell, Tuesday, January 13, 5:30 p.m. at the Kalispell Brewing Co., 412 Main St.
Do UFOs really transport visitors from outer space, or are they just unidentified flying objects? Can you locate underground water with a stick? Is it possible to overdose on a homeopathic “medicine”? What does the word “theory” mean in scientific discourse? Skeptics in the Pub is exploring these questions and much more.
FASHA’s Skeptics in the Pub is free and open to everyone. Just show up and join the discussion.

“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” — Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
“If the Old Testament were a reliable guide in the matter of capital punishment, half the people in the United States would have to be killed tomorrow.” — TV personality and skeptic Steve Allen
“Beliefs are what divide people. Doubt unites them.” — Actor, humanist and Renaissance man Peter Ustinov
