Dining Skeptically

About Dining Skeptically:

We began Dining Skeptically in order to add another element to our meetups. We wanted a forum to discuss current skeptical parenting topics. Each month we choose a new cuisine and a new topic. Past topics have included the Santa myth: do we or don't we, the ideomotor effect, cold reading, alternatives to the Boy Scouts, perpetuating gender roles and studies alleging that children are happier with religion in their lives (we discussed whether it was the religion or the community.)

I ideally want the format to be a potluck dinner where while we eat we debate the topic. Afterward we choose a new topic for the next month. Kids are always welcome. I always have kid friendly food on hand and a large playroom. The kids range from 10 months to 5 years old. Please feel free to email me with any questions regarding the dinners or if you have a topic that you would like to see come up at a future meeting.

    Welcome Irl, I'd be happy to meet ahead of time. That being said, you are more than welcome to just show up to the house as well. Often times we get new families. There are usually many new people at each dinner. In fact it seems there will be three new families at this up coming dinner. The dinner is always potluck style. I usually make a main dish of some sort. Often times people bring side dishes, appetizers, etc. We look forward to meeting you guys!

    Hi. My wife and I would like to attend with our 27 month old boy/girl twins. We're early 40s and in music for TV & Film. Is it weird to show up at someone's house for dinner without meeting first? Glad to meet up at the park before if you like. Any thoughts on topic, and appropriate dishes? Thanks, IRL.
