This event is part of Skepticon Australia 2017, a two-day convention that allows the public to question outlandish claims, like the earth is flat or chemtrails are a real thing, with reason and rationality to get closer to the truth. Day One, Session One starts off with a Welcome Address by the Australian Skeptics' President Eran Segev and an Introduction by the host, Lawrence Leung. Following this, Dr Karl will be expounding on some of the great moments in skepticism, including the potential for alien life, the negative effects of big pharma, the phenomenon of gravitational waves, and all the most fascinating political conspiracies with his session Great Moments in Skepticism. Following Dr Karl, former 'doctor' of naturopathy turned industry whistleblower, Britt Hermes, will be investigating the questionable ethics and pseudoscience that drove her out of the profession.9:00 AM
