The Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination invites Anyone near San Diego to "Time, Mathematics, and the Mind of God" a panel discussion on Tuesday, August 10th 2016 at 6:00pm. The event will highlight personal perspectives from working scientists and a leading science-fiction
author regarding what science has to say about some of our deepest cosmic mysteries. How did time begin in our universe? Why does mathematics work so well to describe the physical world? How does this all connect to the most ancient of theological questions?

Discussants will be Prof. Brian Keating (Physics, UC San Diego),
Dr. Andrew Friedman (Physics/Astronomy, MIT), and
Dr. David Brin (Hugo and Nebula award winning author).

Location: Atkinson Auditorium, first floor of Qualcomm Institute/Calit2.

The event is free and open to the public. Discussion begins at 6:00PM. Please RSVP

I always chuckle to myself whenever I read about a "new" dinosaur species being discovered...
 
New dinosaur species may give clues to evolutionary origin of megaraptorid clade
