This group was created as a means for skeptics to socialize, discuss the issues of the day from a skeptical perspective, promote the philosophy of skepticism, and, most importantly, have fun doing all of the above!
Skepticism is essentially the belief in the power of science and the scientific method to describe all observed phenomena. In general, skeptics won't accept any claims as factual which haven't been verified scientifically; this includes "paranormal" claims such as ghosts, psychic ability, UFO abduction, astrology, etc. We're always open to new evidence on a given claim but the condition remains that it must be substantiated with the methods of science. That's the basic idea... But anyway everyone is welcome in the group; actually it would be fun to have people who disagree!
