Why do intelligent people embrace unfounded ideas? Why do smart people believe in absurd things? The reasons are so many that one can assume that foolishness is a normal human behaviour. How rational are we? How many strange ideas do we believe in? By looking at the causes for this phenomenon, we will understand better ourselves and humanity.

We will explore the absurd beliefs with the Greek chemist Dr. Spiros Kitsinelis, an experienced science communicator on TV, radio, seminars and science festivals. He is also the first Greek winner of the FameLab science communication competition.

The event will be in English with Bulgarian translation.
