What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in rational and science-based thinking. The Cherry City Skeptics are critical-thinkers, rationalists and open minded individuals who promote skeptical inquiry in our community, through the application of skeptical philosophy and science, while remaining neutral to non-empirical claims. Oregonians for Science and Reason (O4SR) has been promoting critical thinking in Oregon since 1994. To learn more about O4SR see their website at www.OregoniansforScienceandReason.org
We get together for pub meet-ups and sponsor speakers and discussions on such wide-ranging science-based topics as medical quackery to critical examination of the paranormal to the psychology human error and all manner of topics in between.

First Sunday of the month Skeptics in the Pub - Salem

Link visible for attendees

Join Cherry City Skeptics in the Pub, O4SR, and their guests for beer and conversation. We meet monthly on the first Sunday of the month. Before the days of COVID-19, we met downstairs in the awesome basement Speakeasy at the Archive Coffee and Bar, but for now we are online. We often pick a science, pseudoscience, or science communication topic to discuss.

Promote critical thinking. Drink beer. Smash pseudoscience. See you there!
