How did you hear about us?

A search for the nearest CFI branch.

What would you like a community like ours to provide for you ideally?

That's just it: A community. It's sometimes difficult to find people to really speak openly with about (and I hate this term) "woo", or just plain science facts without fear of repercussions. Starting with a group of like[enough]-minded people is one way to branch out. I think this kind of group will grow and spread. It's certainly needed in the Salem area.

How do you go about knowing something is true?

Never, really. But, in practice, you can be pretty darn certain something's true if a large body of evidence supports it, challenges to the validity have been addressed, and if sound scientific practices have been applied. In any case, it's better to know you don't know everything than to make something up (to paraphrase Sagan).

Introduction

I'm interested in science and skepticism, seeking contact with people with similar inclinations.
