What we're about

The Hampshire Skeptics Society is a non-profit organisation for the promotion of science, reason and critical thinking. We run the Winchester Skeptics group, which is open to all regardless of beliefs.

*** COVID-19 Update ***

With social distancing in place for the foreseeable future, there won’t be any meetings at any venue for a while yet.

Along with other SitP organizations in the UK we’re hosting livestreamed talks until the current situation changes - so, welcome to Skeptics In the Pub – Online! (https://www.facebook.com/Skeptics-in-the-Pub-Online-108713100774211/)

Visit us on Twitch at https://twitch.tv/sitp for live talks every Thursday at 7:00pm

You don’t need a Twitch account to watch, unless you wish to participate in the online chat.

What is a skeptic? Dr. Steven Novella sums it up quite well:

"A skeptic is one who prefers beliefs and conclusions that are reliable and valid to ones that are comforting or convenient, and therefore rigorously and openly applies the methods of science and reason to all empirical claims, especially their own.
A skeptic provisionally proportions acceptance of any claim to valid logic and a fair and thorough assessment of available evidence, and studies the pitfalls of human reason and the mechanisms of deception so as to avoid being deceived by others or themselves.
Skepticism values method over any particular conclusion."
