Indeed we are a bunch of Skeptics and we were formerly called SD Skeptics. We decided to update our image to something more catchy and positive. Too many people think skeptics are haters and doubters and nay sayers or conspiracy skeptics. They don't know about Carl Sagan and Scientific Skepticism.
Introducing the San Diego Skeptics
Join US: We Skeptics are a bunch of bad ass critical thinkers. We believe that learning how to think is more important than learning what to think. We are tired of the age old questions about god and religion. Those questions have no relevance in the day to day life of someone who believes that science is the best method that human beings have found for finding truth. We also do hiking, parties, picnics and other events. If you want to host something let us know!
Who are we: Our group tends to skew younger than other groups of this type and be slightly more rowdy depending on the event. So be prepared for lively discussions, off-color jokes and a disregard for political correctness. Why hang out with the Skeptics? Because it's self defense for the mind. The world is full of people trying to sell you something, whether it's a time share, health food, medical treatments, a new drug, or a new law. Critical thinking is the only way to vaccinate your brain against these masters of manipulation.
We believe in training our brains in the art of mental defense by learning science, logic and reason in a casual atmosphere that emphasizes fun activities. Our goal is to keep our minds and our bodies in fighting shape so we can better navigate this crazy world.
