What is Truth?
4.45pm, Saturday, Discovery Lounge
Dr Karl Kruszelnicki
Facilitator: Gillian O’Shaughnessy
Do mobile phones really cause cancer? Do vaccines cause Autism? Was the Great Fire of London started by a Catholic Frenchman? “Facts” like these have been disproved over and over and yet they remain. Fake news was in fashion well before emerging in contemporary politics.
Join Dr Karl Kruszelnicki as he takes a deep historical dive to uncover the mis-truths that have infiltrated our everyday.
