Panhandle Archaeological Society at Tallahassee (PAST)

B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Gov. Martin House, 1001 De Soto Park Dr., Tallahassee.
Join us on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 7 P.M., as Dr. Dan Seinfeld presents, “New Insights into the Lake Jackson Mounds.” Recent investigations using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) have provided new insights into the forms and construction histories of the Lake Jackson Mounds. Findings include the discovery of multiple construction layers and the presence of previously undetected subsurface structures. These discoveries suggest a break from earlier Woodland period mound-building traditions and demonstrate close ties between Lake Jackson and other Mississippian period sites in the southeastern United States. PAST meetings are at the B. Calvin Jones Center for Archaeology at the Gov. Martin House, 1001 De Soto Park Dr., Tallahassee. De Soto Park Dr. is off Lafayette St. between Seminole Dr. and Myers Park Dr. Look for the PAST sign on Lafayette St. on the evening of the meeting.

Dinner at the Square: American Values in the Age of Hyper-Partisanship

Jan 27, 2014 5:30-7:30 PM

St. John’s Episcopal Church 211 N. Monroe St. downtown Tallahassee
Founder and President of the Institute for American Values, a New York City based think tank focused on rebuilding civil society, David Blankenhorn has spent his career thinking creatively and provoking constructive discourse about some of the most important and controversial cultural issues of our time. As we find ourselves increasingly locked down inside ideological camps, David defies categories, crosses boundaries, and offers fresh and compelling thinking where we seem most stuck. Our discussion will be wide-ranging and free-wheeling and will focus not just on problems (like hyper-partisanship) but also on solutions (like how to build stronger communities). Facilitated by his long-time friend and Village Square Board Member Bill Mattox, if you’re tired of thinking inside the box then this one’s for you.

Tickets are $27 each through January 23 (or $50 for a couple), and $35 per ticket after if tickets are still available.

Dinner at the Square: Faith vs. Science

Apr 21, 2015 5:30-7:30 PM

St. John’s Episcopal Church, 211 N. Monroe St. downtown Tallahassee
There are few areas of the culture war with deeper and more consequential divisions than the ongoing clash between faith and science. And just like with our other divisions, we’re having difficulty navigating the complexities of both faith and science without falling into our angry tribes (tribes that diminish either faith or science). Rather than having an ongoing conversation of substance about how to apply our exploding understanding of the world around us to solve problems, our communication descends into name-calling and made-up “facts” that support what we want to believe is true (but isn’t necessarily). People of faith feel attacked and marginalized in a world where rapid scientific and technological advancements seem to outpace our ability to use them wisely. Join us.

Speakers:
Harrison Prosper, Ph.D., FSU Department of Physics
Mike McHargue AKA “Science Mike”

Tickets are $27 each through April 17 (or $50 for a couple), and $35 per ticket after if tickets are still available.
