Bournemouth Skeptics in the Pub invite a guest speaker every month to come and discuss something interesting with us. The talks can be about science, reason and critical thinking, conspiracy, the paranormal, cults and so on. Listen, have a drink and ask some questions of our speaker.

We meet on the second Wednesday of each month at The Brunswick Pub, 199 Malmesbury Park Rd, Charminster, BH8 8PX (5 minutes by car or 15 minutes on foot from Bournemouth Station).

What's the talk about?

Ronald Green will take a skeptical look into what we have been told about time, while delving into the philosophical and scientific ramifications and the centrality of our place within it all. Challenging what is naturally taken for granted, he will forge a link between philosophy and science, blowing away the cobwebs that obscure both.

With time as the core of existence, Ronald's contention that 'now' does not exist opens up questions as to the reality of the past, the potential reality of the future, and leads us to central issues of Reality, Truth, Knowledge, Objectivity, the Self and Consciousness. In brief, a journey that goes to the heart of what it means to be human.


Ronald Green is the author of "Time To Tell: a look at how we tick" (iff Books, 2018) and "Nothing Matters: a book about nothing" (iff Books, 2011). Philosopher, linguist, author and university lecturer, with 13 ESL books published, Ronald has lectured and given workshops in Europe, North and South America and the Middle East on philosophy, linguistics, ESL and the use of Internet in education. His short stories have been published widely.
