Topic: A special atheist tour of Inner Space Cavern.
About the speaker
ACA member Joe Zamecki will give us a special tour of the Inner Space Cavern. He says:
"During the tour, I'll talk about how Inner Space Cavern was discovered, by a core-sample drilling team working for the Texas Highway Department. Hopefully we'll also get to see some bats up close, maybe even flying around us. We'll also be in comfortable climate the whole time. In the cave, the temperature stays around 72-78 degrees all year round, no matter what kind of weather is on the surface. We'll also see some of the fossilized bones that have been found in the cave. Some really fascinating animals lived on the surface of Texas at the times when cave-ins occured, and a lot of animals fell into the cave and died there. It's an eye-opening journey into the underground, where nature preserves bones and creates mineral formations that are a feast for the eyes. It's the closest show cave to Austin, tens of millions of years in the making, and conveniently located North of Austin, just off I-35 in South Georgetown.
