Have you ever received a forwarded email or message telling you about some chemical found in a popular softdrink that’s also used to preserve dead bodies? Or how the chicken you’re eating is not really a chicken but some mutated genetic freak?
How about your next-door neighbor who tells you about this bracelet or necklace that supposedly emanates protective energy? Or the latest scientific breakthrough, embedded in a small sticker or magnet that can generate healing energy for your body?
How do you know how much of this stuff is real and how much of it is just plain b*******?
Join us as we explore these issues in “What the Fact? Investigating Urban Legends and Pseudoscience” at the Filipino Freethinkers Davao meetup on October 6, 2012 at Cafe Demitasse, F. Torres St., Davao City (click for map), from 7:30PM to 9:30PM (or later — last time, we had a stimulating discussion that ended at around 12:00 MN).
