#QEDcon – Day1 (Part1 – Daytime) 4

Here is a quick reminder of yesterday at #QEDcon during the day… nope sorry, no detailed notes, I was way too busy having a blast, but fret not because it was all filmed and so will be up on YouTube at some point.

There were parallel tracks and a few really hard choices for me to make, so as you can see I stayed in the main room.

Room fills up and the excitement builds …


To preside over things as the MC we have the wonderful Mitch Benn (yea…) … and and yes, the opening movie was a blast …


Marcel Dicke ()

Why Not? A Six-Legged Solution to Food Security, and yes he meant it … when done, we got the opportunity to had a sample (seen below), and yes I went for it (had a but of a nutty taste, and a tad dry, needs a bit of liquid, can anybody recommend a wine to goes with bugs?)


Next up was Harriet Hall who proceeded to poke holes in the Acupuncture Myth.

This was a great talk, I learned a lot of new stuff.


Then we had Rosie Waterhouse talking about Satanic Abuse, False Memories, and Multiple Personalities: Anatomy of a 25-year Investigation



We restarted with …

Natalie Haynes  – Stands Up for the Classics


Ryan Bell – The Slow Death of God: Lessons from a Year Without God


Bruce Hood () – Why We Fail to Reason & How to Speak Easily

  • ElizabethD ‏@_ElizabethD  Apparently atheists and scientists are more likely to fuck dead chickens than the general public, says survey of US citizens
  •  I’m going to sign my Bruce Hood books myself, in protest of veneration of the essence of people.


Matt Dillahunty – Peddling Reason: Thoughts on a Decade of Debating with Theists



… more picks to come later for the evening event.
