How did learn about Skepticism and "Skeptics in the Pub?"

From friends

Have you ever been a member of a Skeptical organization anywhere else in the world?


Do you have any questions or comments about the nature of our activities? Skepticism is not a universally agreed upon term as so can be misleading.

No question. I am not an advocate in philosophical skepticism, but i know this group is more concerned with scientific skepticism and deals primarily in issues where empirical evidences play a major role. It's the latter kind of skepticism, which has immediate implications to our society, that I'm passionate about.

Tell the group and the organizers a little bit about yourself. Include things like nationality, places you've lived, things you like to do, etc.

Nationality: HKSAR Places I've lived in: Hong Kong, Australia, The United States. My training was in pure mathematics. My dissertation was about 2-dimensional complex manifold which I soon find pretty useless (to my disappointment).... I love classical music. Occasionally I play piano and spend a whole afternoon figuring out the harmonic structures of pieces I love. I have an interest in Economic theory, philosophy of science, evolutionary theory, psychology.


I'm a pilot by profession, mathematician by training, a skeptic by nature.
