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.
