Welcome to the Sacramento Area Skeptics Rory. I look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming meetings. If you are unfamiliar with the Skeptics movement I have found this to be a great bite-sized definition: http://skeptoid.com/skeptic.php
Individuals get involved to the skeptical movement for different reasons: as a way to promote science and the scientific method, because they are sick and tired of seeing people get duped by quacks, or because they think it is where all the cool kids are. Either way, it does not matter if you consider yourself a skeptic, critical thinker, or are just curious as to what we are all about, anyone is welcome to join this group and attend our meetings.
The Sacramento Area Skeptics were created in 2008 in an effort to organize a way for skeptics in the Sacramento area to meet one another. We organize lectures, co-host the annual SkeptiCal Conference, and host monthly social gatherings where like minds can discuss various topics over a pint. We work to promote science and critical thinking in the area and around the world and hope you join us in our effort.
