David BloombergSeptember Meeting
Our meeting on Tuesday, September 1 (7 p.m., Lincoln Library), will feature Rense Lange presenting "Poltergeist Delusions." This talk will be a summary of his empirical research on the psychology and science of poltergeists and a discussion of how unusual occurrences may be perceived as poltergeists depending on a persons pre-existing belief in the paranormal. His research has been published in several journals and he will even expand further on his work. He is also currently working on a book titled, Haunting Questions of Perception: Scientific Perspectives on the Poltergeist.
This definitely promises to be an interesting meeting (I mean, how many people do you know of in Central Illinois who have done research into poltergeist beliefs?), so I hope to see everybody there!October Meeting
Whats this? We actually know what were doing for a meeting over a full month ahead of time? Yes, we do! On October 6, I will be speaking on the topic of "Thinking Skeptically." I was asked to give a presentation on this topic to Professionals Against Confidence Crime conference in September, and I hate to use a good talk just once! I will also include additional information on what kind of response I get from PACC.Book Order
If you didnt order books, well, youre too late this time. We sent off the order and its even possible that well have the books by the September meeting (no promises, though). But if you did want to order some books and never got around to letting us know, dont fret too much if we can get 10 more books for ordering, well do it again.
