7:30 p.m. in the Caper Room, Atrium Building, 954 North Course Lane. There is no cost for guests; any resident of CA or Kings Point interested in science and technology is invited. Scientists and Public Opinion: the Gap - In the 1960’s and 70’s scientists were generally revered as folks who worked diligently and found truths that could be demonstrated, believed, and used by the world.  In the past few years, a substantial fraction of the general public has begun to disregard carefully constructed studies with reproducible results that have been published and reviewed in reputable journals and have accepted instead internet blog opinions by celebrities, books by self-appointed “scientists”, and press conference proclamations by people with no known credentials.  Matters such as Darwinian evolution, climate change, and vaccine-induced autism are seeing their overwhelming scientific evidence being dismissed as a mere “belief” not any more or less valid than a belief in one person’s anecdotal experience.  Phillip Leto, respected lecturer from the Discovery University and familiar name to SCC residents, will address these issues as he returns to the SET club this year for his 4th presentation.
