You may or may not know less than you think

Last week, Paul Hopwood delivered a talk to the Humanist Society of West Yorkshire entitled “You Know Less Than You Think”.

Though, for the sake of those being busy, he included a more accurate title that went something along the lines of “you may or may not know more, less or the same as you may or may not think you know.”

It is a really interesting talk and one that he has previously given at Leeds Skeptics, as well as round the country. So interesting in fact that I actually went away from the event and read The Invisible Gorilla – one of the books Paul recommends in the talk.

I think what it comes down to is that Paul is just a really interesting guy. We went for a couple of drinks after the talk and settled in to some fascinating conversations – it was only realising I had to be at work in eight hours that made me call it a night.

If you missed it, don’t worry, you can see the version he gave to Leeds Skeptics online via Worfolk Lectures. Or, why not see it in person – Paul will be speaking at Sheffield Skeptics on 28 January!
