Join fellow lovers of science and reason in the north valley at the Skeptical Chymist (of course!). The SC is a cool Irish-themed pub with good food and a great drink selection. There's no agenda other than hanging out with fellow skeptics and having lively conversations about pretty much anything. Common topics are complementary and alternative medicine (homeopathy, acupuncture), conspiracy theories (vaccine myths, 9/11 "truth"), paranormal claims (UFOs, ghosts), and anything else to which we can apply critical thinking (which is everything). Join us for the fun!
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
