Central New York Skeptics (CNY Skeptics) is a community organization dedicated to the promotion of science and reason, the investigation of paranormal and fringe-science claims, and the improvement of standards for science education and critical-thinking skills.

The Most Precious Thing We Have

CNY Skeptics subscribes to the premise that the scientific method is the most reliable and self-correcting system for obtaining knowledge about the world and universe. We don’t simply reject out of hand every unusual idea; however we do insist that unusual ideas require considerable supporting evidence before we accept them as being true. In other words, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

Policy on Faith-Based Claims

CNY Skeptics respects the religious and non-religious beliefs of others, and recognizes that spirituality is based on faith and is not testable. Consequently, spirituality in itself is of no interest to CNY Skeptics. If, however, a spiritual leader or spiritual group makes a testable claim, then that claim ceases to be a matter of faith and, as such, might be an area of interest to the group.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
