The Mile High Skeptics/Denver Skeptics Society is a science organization. We are a fun, friendly group of people who promote the scientific method to examine the data in support or against extraordinary claims, using evidenced-based methods.
We look at the real facts behind popular beliefs many people are convinced are true, but have not been proven, and are actually more likely to be improbable. Examples include the existence of UFOs, conspiracy theories, ghost hauntings, fad food diets, global warming denialism, religious and spiritual beliefs, new age mysticism, alternative medicine, Bigfoot, crop circles, psychic powers, aromatherapy, anti-vaccination, herbal remedies, vitamin megadosing, acupuncture, chiropractic, naturopathy, homeopathy, and just about anything you see on Dr. Oz that makes us all want to vomit. Or just go talk to anyone in Boulder for 60 seconds, and you'll get the idea.
Skeptics maintain that unless there is evidence to back up a particular claim, it is unlikely to be true.
We also like to drink. A lot.
Come join us and help promote the public understanding of science!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
