North Bay Skeptics are: humanists, atheists, freethinkers, agnostics and undeclared, who embrace modern skepticism. We celebrate the scientific method, and the application of logic and evidence to all claims. As in the tradition of many Skeptical groups world wide, we like to gather for lively discussion on current topics and apply our skills towards debunking the latest pseudoscience fad. “Discussion”, includes chatting, mingling, eating, and joke telling, all while consuming non-homeopathic liquids. We have a healthy appreciation for the myriad mechanisms of self-deception to which humans are vulnerable; but this does not hold us back from confronting non-evidence-based claims and beliefs, and recognizing the harm such claims and beliefs can cause. Join us for monthly meetings.
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.
