Phoenix Skeptics in the Pub - OHSO Brewery

Skeptics,

Join fellow lovers of science and reason for some drinks, food, and conversation at a new spot: OHSO Brewery. 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!

Matt Londen, Organizer

---

A skeptic is one who prefers beliefs and conclusions that are reliable and valid to ones that are comforting or convenient, and therefore rigorously and openly applies the methods of science and reason to all empirical claims, especially their own. 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
