The Mile High Skeptics Society is a science organization. We promote the public understanding of science, as well as using the scientific method to examine the data in support or against extraordinary claims, using evidenced-based methods.
Skeptics maintain that unless there is sufficient evidence to back up a particular claim, it is unlikely to be true.
Examples of false or unproven claims include UFOs, conspiracy theories, ghost hauntings, fad food diets, Bigfoot, alternative medicine, psychic powers, religious convictions, new age philosophies, and just about every kind of popular woo that has poured out of the foul mouth of Dr. Mehmet Oz.
A good resource on what our group is about is here: "Michael Shermer's Baloney Detection Kit": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUB4j0n2UDU
Come join us if you want to promote science.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
