ACA Lecture Series

Free and Open to the Public
The Atheist Community of Austin hosts a monthly lecture series as a community service and a means of promoting and disseminating ideas of interest to atheists and the greater Austin community. Lecture topics usually focus on core areas of atheist interest such as science, skepticism, the impact of religion, philosophy, church/state separation, and community activism. While many of our lecturers are PhDs, lectures are targeted to a lay audience of people who want to enrich their understanding.

We usually hold our lectures at the Austin History Center, located downtown at 9th and Guadalupe (Yahoo map). Lectures are scheduled usually on the 2nd Sunday of every month starting at 12:15pm. We meet in the "Reception Room". The building opens at noon.

Many lectures are available on YouTube via the ACA Lecture Series playlist.

Our next lecture will be presented on December 13, 2015 at 12:15 p.m..

Adam Narkiewicz
What is wrong with the burden-of-proof logic?

Adam is an economics researcher at Texas A&M University. He describes himself as follows: My place is where science intersects with business. I specialize in evaluation of viability of scientific ideas from the business perspective. In other words, I analyze risks and benefits of scientific projects from a venture capitalistsí point of view, whether it is a new medical procedure or a new product based on unproven technology. I also specialize in business intelligence, development of information system supporting business decisions as well as business and financial analysis in general. I have done a number of projects in industries such as health care, manufacturing, online advertising, e-commerce, and logistics.
