millions of bad feelings
Speaking the truth
The Veritas Forum, being held all this week throughout campus, is intended to explore the truth and answer some pertinent questions about the way the world is viewed today.
Pat Taylor, a professor at Western and member of the Veritas Committees, said the forum hopes to explore issues of the world through a variety of speakers, seminars and dramatic presentations. "The primary goal is to encourage people to consider and discuss what the truth really is," he said.
Taylor hopes people will talk personally and not just academically and that people will attend the forums to ask questions with an open mind and heart.
There is a coffeehouse cabaret tonight at 7 p.m. in Somerville House and the Great Hall which will feature a mix of music, comedy, drama and dance.
Taylor encouraged everyone to come and explore what the truth means to them.
Western's department of physics and astronomy is holding a discussion with Wendy Freedman, a researcher who works at the Carnegie Observatory in Pasadena, California, on "The Age and Size of the Universe" as part of the 1998 Elizabeth Laird Memorial Lecture.
The lecture is open to the public and is not only geared toward science students. People of all ages and interests will enjoy the presentation as it is about ideas of how large the universe is and how far away the galaxies are.
The talk takes place tomorrow at 8 p.m. in Room 137 of the Physics and Astronomy Building.
