Skeptics in Birmingham, Alabama?  Science geeks, philosophy geeks, agnostics and atheists in Birmingham, Alabama?  It’s hard to believe, but we’re all here at Darwin’s Tavern.  Join us for intelligent, casual conversation and your choice of adult beverages.  Our events include bar and restaurant meetups and group discussions in homes.  Between meetups we keep in touch on Facebook.  To find us on Facebook, just log-in and search “Darwin’s Tavern”.  (Please note the pinned post before engaging.)  To find primates with a pulse, RSVP below for one of our meetups. 

About DT: On September 3rd of 2009 this website was launched with the hope of one day having a welcoming, friendly, in-person community of skeptics known as “Darwin’s Tavern".  Over time that hope became a reality thanks to the work of our volunteer event organizers and the commitment of our regulars.  Unlike Darwinian evolution, our growth was not an un-guided process.  We relied then and continue to rely now on our event organizers to keep us on track.  In-depth discussion and debate are welcome.  Insults and rude comments are not. Check out our Facebook page, and we hope to see you at an event soon.  Cheers!
