Since 2008, our members have been making friends, learning, challenging and being challenged with people who like to explore commonly held ideas and beliefs with a scientific eye. Take a break from those who buy into the latest “cure” or conspiracy theory, or those who won't let go of the oldest religious idea, or social standard based on "truthiness" alone. Hang out for a laugh, write an action letter, and learn to think critically.  Get to know a group of people who want a better world through examining new and old ideas alike! Learn more about what skepticism is.

The Cleveland Skeptics hold about 3-5 activities per month including events like:

  • Regular book club, gaming nights and monthly Drinking Skeptically (non-drinkers welcome!)

  • Frequent museum trips to see latest exhibits and lectures (Natural history, science, art or others)

  • Annual Darwin Day

  • Movies- sometimes related to skepticism sometimes just for fun

  • Recent historical tour of Kirtland's Mormon Temple

  • Occasional trips to New Age fairs with "New Age Bingo"

  • Casual gatherings, sometimes with a theme of discussion

  • Annual review of new year's "psychic" predictions of our members

  • Miscellaneous good times such as bowling, hikes, science fairs, playhouse square, etc.



Note: This is not an atheist/agnostic/freethinker/secularist group per se; non-theism is not required nor sufficient to appreciate this group; valuing science and critical thinking is. That said, most of us are non-religious.  Expect ideas you present to be challenged and questions, including religious ones.

The Cleveland Skeptics is proud to have a code of conduct in order to build a positive experience for everyone.

We're 416 Skeptics

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
