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, spiritual and/or 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.  We also like to drink.  A lot.

We're 647 Skeptics

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
