What was your path to skepticism?

Meeting a friend who was a rationalist certainly put me on the path...discovering authors like Shermer cemented my road, and the advent of podcasting introduced me to a wonderful world of skeptic personalities.

What is the best day and time for you to meet?

Most weeknight evenings and anytime on weekends

Are you alarmed by the state of scientific knowledge among the general population in America?

Very much so. I don't know that I would say that its worse, better or unchanged over the past, but I would certainly say what I am seeing now is alarmingly bad.

Are there issues or topics you'd especially like to discuss?

Not that I can think of right now. I have a worry of the whole "preaching to the choir" syndrome with a group like this. Its a given that we are going to be pretty strongly in agreement most of the time. Not sure what that accomplishes.


Looking to meet and chat with like minded fellow skeptics.
