Sci Fightis a quarterly science comedy debate held at the wonderful Spotted Mallard, with your definitely qualified hosts, Alanta Colley and Tom Lang (citation needed).
This round’s topic: ‘Scientists Should Rule the World’. Kings, generals, bankers, priests, they’ve all had their chance. We need leadership that’s rational, evidence-based, and clearly labelled. It’s time the scientists had their chance to ruin things for everyone. It’s time the scientists ruled the world!
Imagine it! Double-blinded democracy. Peer-reviewed policy. Never really knowing if you’re in the control group or not. So civilised! Plus, scientists have a great track record. As long as you forget that fling with leaded petrol. And the atom bomb. And all that stuff with the rhesus monkeys.
Cast your vote at Sci Fight, where our caucus of scientists and comedians try to win you over with strange facts, good comedy, and no gerrymandering!
For the Affirmative:Pam Rana, Danielle Measday and Adam Knox For the Negative:Ben McKenzie, Lauren Bok and Toby Halligan
