Announcing the first-ever virtual AIPT SciPhi-Fest!

A totally free, online con for everyone who likes to have fun thinking about stuff

AIPT Science is thrilled to announce the first-ever AIPT SciPhi-Fest, a virtual festival of science, philosophy, and philosophy of science, as seen through an entertainment and pop culture lens. If you’ve liked our articles on the methods of science and the skeptical angle on pop culture, from box office to Bigfoot, you’ll love AIPT SciPhi-Fest!

The whole thing goes down Sunday, July 18, and all it takes for you to join is internet access — AIPT SciPhi-Fest is 100% FREE! But if you’re finally crawling out from under isolation and actually doing the socializing thing, don’t worry. Many of our talks will be uploaded to YouTube at a later date.

Announcing the first-ever virtual AIPT SciPhi-Fest!

 

Check out the lineup so far! Starting right at 10:00 am is our Star Wars block, featuring:

  • PhD paleontologist Jim Lehane combining two of his favorite things in one talk — Star Wars and geology
  • Psychologist and critical thinking professor Craig A. Foster explaining why in science, anecdotes are like Stormtroopers — it doesn’t matter how many you throw at a problem, they can’t get the job done
  • Paranormal investigator Kenny Biddle comparing Force ghosts to “real” ghosts, in their behavior and how they interact with the world

And then!

  • Caricature artist Celestia Ward demonstrating the concept of pareidolia, and how seeing things that aren’t there has caused faces on Mars and censorship of comics
  • Archaeologist David S. Anderson digging into the “ancient aliens” origin of Jack Kirby’s Eternals
  • Matt Brady, author of The Science of Rick and Morty!

Announcing the first-ever virtual AIPT SciPhi-Fest!

Plus more to be announced, including a couple HUGE surprises. Many of our guests will be available for Q&A after their talks!

So beat the heat and stay inside (one last time!) on Sunday, July 18, for AIPT SciPhi-Fest. Link below, and stay tuned to AIPT in the coming weeks for the rest of the lineup!
