The Association for Science and Reason (Skeptics Canada) Monthly Meetup

Toronto Skeptics in the Pub Event: Our plans for a speaker unfortunately fell through, but there's nothing to say that a bunch of skeptics can't get together for some food, drinks, and a chinwag. Our humble chairman will be otherwise occupied, but in doing so it may give you something to discuss. He will be running a fishing tournament, which brings to mind such topics as animal rights, animal rights activists and their tactics, blood sports, vegetarianism/veganism, and whatever else you can come up with along those lines.

We'll be at our usual venue, the Fox and Fiddle, just across from Wellesley Subway station. To find us, tell the wait staff you are looking for the Skeptics. We should be on the 3rd Floor.

The Association for Science and Reason (formerly Skeptics Canada) (www.scienceandreason.ca) has opened its regular monthly dinner to interested Meetup members, and it has been a lot of fun. Heated discussion, hot food, good company--a great way to spend the evening without losing I.Q. points.

As usual, don't be put off by the small number of people signing up through Meetup. Most of the regulars do not respond, they just show up. We typically have between 30 and 50 attendees.

    I have never participated in anything like this before. I would like to meet people who think the way I think and enjoy life. I am a new skeptic ready to reason and full of questions.

      The speaker idea fell through, so it's just members getting together to have dinner, snack, or beverage, and talk to each other about anything other than non-concrete beings.

      Of the few meetings I've been to with speakers, I immensely enjoyed: 1) Escaping the Jehovah's Witnesses -- by one of our members, 2) A pharmacist walking us through the drug store and explaining name brand drugs vs generic drugs, etc., 3) psychology student debunking beliefs, myths, etc. -- by one of our own members, 4) Cyber fraud, and how to prevent it from happening to you, and 5) Nuclear waste management.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
