BAHFest Seattle 2017
BAHFest is a celebration of well-argued and thoroughly researched but completely incorrect scientific theory. Our brave speakers present their bad theories in front of a live audience and a panel of judges with real science credentials, who together determine who takes home the coveted BAHFest trophy. And eternal glory, of course.
Come join us on Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 at Temple De Hirsch Sinai located at 1441 – 16th Avenue, Seattle, WA, 98122

JudgeHenry Reich appears to be both a judge and keynote somehow. We believe quantum effects may be at play.
