What are Skeptics and what does one do at a Skeptics' Meet-Up? Is it, as a friend put it, a bunch of people looking at each other suspiciously with one eyebrow raised, thinking, "I'm not too sure about you.?"
Ask the members of the forum what a Skeptic is, and you may hear a slightly different answer from each person. Among us, you will find people who love the hard sciences, psychology, philosophy, politics, current events, history, the list goes on. The common denominator? We enjoy discussing (ok, debating) issues surrounding these topics and others. As skeptics, we understand we need to back up assertions with more than feelings and beliefs, with reason and good evidence from reputable sources. Oh yeah, a sense of humor really helps.
