Skeptics in the Pub - Sleepy Dog

Skeptics -

Join fellow lovers of science and reason for some drinks, food, and conversation at one of our favorite spots: Sleepy Dog Brewery in Tempe. There's no lecture or formal discussion; this is strictly a social meetup. The idea is to hang out with other skeptics and talk about the many areas of interest to the our community: paranormal claims (ghosts, psychics), conspiracy theories (9/11 "Truth", HAARP), denialism (climate, evolution), pseudoscience (homeopathy, acupuncture), marketing (balance bands, "super fruit" juice)...the list of BS is endless.

The world is full of superstition, bad arguments, and unquestioned assumptions. Consider our meetup an oasis in the desert. See you at the pub!

-----------

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

    urk, the powerboating class is taking much longer than I thought... I'll drop by when I'm done and see if anyone's still there.

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.
