SHAFT will be showing a new documentary called Collision this Wednesday (Oct 28th) in the Engineering Building, room 302 at 5pm.  The documentary follows noted blowhard errrr public intellectual and atheist Christopher Hitchens and his foil Douglas Wilson (a theist) as the two travel around the country debating the atheism/theism.

All are welcome to attend.  Visit the SHAFT page for more info and for a preview clip.

    We’re trying to find a bigger room, so just take note of that. I’ll keep you posted. The most up-to-date info will be found at our blog.

    Thanks, Kleiner.

    New room: This SHAFT event has moved to the Engineering building, room 302. Sorry for any inconveniences. The room accommodates 100 people, which is preferable to the 30 or so that Old Main 301 could seat. There is also a parking lot near the Engineering building, which makes it easiest for those living off campus to attend.

    Kleiner, if you could update this post with the new event location, I’d appreciate it. Thanks.
