Southeastern Virginia Skeptics is an informal social group designed to promote fellowship and networking among skeptics, critical thinkers, and like-minded individuals. The group provides an opportunity for skeptics to talk and share ideas 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. We also welcome those who may hold different views to join in the discussion (as long as the dialogue is civil and constructive!).

What is skepticism? 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.

We host a wide range of events such as brunches, dinners, book discussions, films, and attending events held or sponsored by skeptical/secular organizations, and even doing some activism of our own.

In order to protect the privacy of our members, membership requires approval.
