Even though Larry Moran claims, “The best event, by far, will be Saturday morning,” Saturday afternoon at Eschaton 2012 will also be a winner. The Track 1: theme of the day is Science & Skepticism and Jeff Shallit is one of the featured speakers.
Jeff Shallit is a professor of Mathematics at Waterloo, and skeptic crusader (especially in the ID/creationism battle). He is particularly active on the abuses of mathematics occurring in ID/creationism and other pseudosciences.

The tickets to attend Jeff Shallit’s talk and to attend talks by other Eschaton 2012 guests during the day on Saturday are $150.
Note: Tickets for the entire three-day event are still available for $275; $225 for CFI members.
