December 11th Sunday Assembly

Terry McGlynn

How do we know what we know? How can we leave room to challenge dogmatic thinking and arrive at new conclusions?

Terry McGlynn will speak about "Unknown Unknowns," those moments when observation challenges accepted scientific wisdom, and how major paradigm shifts in scientific thinking--and our own minds--can occur. 

A tropical biologist who does research to solve the biological mysteries involving ants and rainforests, Terry is a professor of biology at Cal State Dominguez Hills and a research associate of the Natural History Museum of LA. His blog is Small Pond Science.


Musical guests Hunter and the Dirty Jacks return!

Keith Swallow is doing his best.

Introducing Daniel Algazy and Sara McGuire as hosts.

We'll be collecting new unwrapped children's toys on behalf of Children's Hospital LA and you can always bring food for Westside Food Bank. Thank you for your generosity!

Join us to find your seat at 11 am, and at 11:10 am, on the dot, we will have great talks, live music and secular celebration. Stick around afterward for coffee and, if you're still game,  lunch at the Oinkster across the street.

Sunday Assembly is free of charge, and donations are gratefully accepted.

Everyone is welcome. Free childcare provided.

Free parking is available in our onsite parking lot, and street parking is also free on Sundays.

* Please note that our website is no longer accepting plus-ones for RSVPs. We ask that all adults RSVP individually or sign in at the Assembly. This ensures that you and your party can stay together while signing in, and it helps us improve our statistical data so we can keep working to improve the Sunday Assembly community. Thank you for your understanding.
