All over the world the "Skeptics in the Pub" phenomena has been growing and we have brought it to Hong Kong. We meet monthly in the philosophy of dedicating our minds to inquiry.
"Upon this first, and in one sense this sole, rule of reason, that in order to learn you must desire to learn, and in so desiring not be satisfied with what you are already inclined to think, there follows one corollary which itself deserves to be inscribed upon every wall of the city of philosophy: Do not block the way of inquiry.”
—Charles Sanders Peirce, "First Rule of Logic"
Our mission is to support scientific education, critical thinking and an evidence based understanding of the natural world. Through this we hope to reduce the influence of religious fundamentalism and superstition on public policy and help members of the general public make better decisions.
