What is Drinking Skeptically?
Drinking Skeptically is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship and networking among skeptics, critical-thinkers, and like-minded individuals.
Drinking Skeptically provides an opportunity for skeptics to talk, share ideas (and yes, drink) in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. We discuss the issues of the day and whatever else is on our minds. But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.
Don't drink? Don't let that stop you from joining us! Some of the world's most famous skeptics are teetotallers, and we are happy to have you!
Visiting a Drinking Skeptically location from out of town? Stop on by! Skeptics are a friendly bunch and there's always room for one more...
Remember that drinking skeptically means drinking responsibly. If there's one thing science has taught us, it's the effects of alcohol on the human body.
Skepticism is a method of examining claims about the world. The skeptical "toolbox" includes a reliance upon reason, critical thinking, and a desire for verifiable, testable evidence about particular claims (especially extraordinary ones). Usually, the "skeptical way of thinking" is embodied in the scientific method.
If you'd like to learn more about skeptics and skepticism, some great places to start are the websites of skeptical groups and organizations. Here are a few to get you started:
The James Randi Educational Foundation
Center for Inquiry
The Skeptics Society, including Michael Shermer's Skeptical Manifesto.
