Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss will save our scientific souls

October 26, 2017 Whats On No Comments Email Email

This May, Think Inc., the team behind the Australian tours of Dr Neil deGrasse Tyson, Dr Jane Goodall, Sam Harris and Dr Brian Greene are excited to bring audiences in Australia and New Zealand two incontrovertible icons of scientific literacy and antitheism: evolutionary biologist and author Richard Dawkins, and theoretical physicist and cosmologist Lawrence Krauss, on stage and in conversation for Science in the Soul.

Join them on a mission to disrupt religious dogma, evince evolution and celebrate the glory and unending possibilities of science.

While he needs no introduction, Richard Dawkins’ seminal and creative forays into evolutionary science and religion cannot be overstated. Author of the unadulterated decimation of religious belief, The God Delusion, father of the ‘meme’, and passionate opponent of creationism, Dawkins is one of the most polarising and provocative scientific minds of our time.

“I am greatly looking forward to touring Australia and New Zealand next year. I love the can-do friendliness down under,” says Dawkins.

One of the few true contemporaries of Dawkins, Lawrence Krauss is an impassioned advocate of scientific proliferation, education, and skepticism. Krauss is the Foundation Professor of the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, where he directs the Origins Project. With his book The Physics of Star Trek, he aimed to quell the surge of superstition in popular culture, before examining everything and nothing about the origins of our cosmos in A Universe from Nothing.

“I am thrilled to be returning to Australia and New Zealand with Richard. Our previous tour there was over 5 ago… and whole world perspective has changed.” says Krauss.

“More than ever we need to speak out in favour of reason and evidence, now in the political spectrum and well as the religious one.  At the same time, new discoveries ranging from the cosmos to our own human origins have pushed scientific frontiers forward in unexpected ways.”

This May, join Think Inc., Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss as they strip the veneer of social complacency, to expose the truth about religion, evolution and the workings of our world.
