Strange Demographics

Shirley and I attend two group activities that appear to me to have strange demographics. We attend the Skeptics Society lecture series, mostly book tour lectures, and concerts at our local colleges. My impression is that in both cases the 35-60 year old age group is underrepresented and both the 18-35 and the 60 to who knows what age groups are over represented.
If my perception is correct, the reasons for these strange demographics are not hard to find. But, at least at the upper range, they differ. On the one hand, the Skeptics Society has many members who are old, in some cases, lifelong, atheists. On the other hand, there are a several major retirement communities near the colleges that present the concerts. While all the members of the retirement communities are, by some standard or other, old, very few are old atheists. My guess is that great concerts at no cost brings these seniors to the colleges. That’s why Shirley and I go.
Among the reasons that abnormal blogging has been light the last couple of days is that we attended three concerts and a meeting of the Skeptics Society over the weekend. But alas, while the Skeptics Society goes on, the free concert season has come to an end.
