Welcome to the Wollongong Skeptics in the Pub meetup group. This group is part of a larger, informal, socially orientated group of skeptics - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skeptics_in_th... 

We are about discussing and promoting scientific skepticism. Robust discussions debunking claims made by psychics, alternative medicine practitioners (e.g. homeopathy, reiki, acupuncture, cupping, energy-quantum-vibration-whatever etc), anti-vaccination campaigners, conspiracy theorists and other promoters of woo and pseudo-scientific nonsense. We prefer reality over delusion and magical thinking. 

"A skeptic is one who prefers beliefs and conclusions that are reliable and valid to ones that are comforting or convenient, and therefore rigorously and openly applies the methods of science and reason to all empirical claims, especially their own. A skeptic provisionally proportions acceptance of any claim to valid logic and a fair and thorough assessment of available evidence, and studies the pitfalls of human reason and the mechanisms of deception so as to avoid being deceived by others or themselves. Skepticism values method over any particular conclusion." - Dr. Steven Novella of The New England Skeptics and The Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
