What Happened To The Kilogram? The MISkeptics Get Together
On November 16th, Scientists at the General Conference on Weights and Measures voted to change the way the kilogram is measured. The Kilogram was the last standard of measurement to be based on a physical object. The new standard will be based on a force of nature. What were the challenges with the old standard. What does the new standard do differently? And what does that change moving forward? Come and join us for lively discussion, drinks, dinner and debate! This is a good event for Skeptics of Michigan to come together and discuss local, national, worldwide items affecting skeptics. All are welcome to listen and participate. Please be sure to RSVP so I know how many are coming. That way I can modify the reservation if necessary. I hope to see you all there!

What we're about

Michigan Skeptics is a gathering place for critical thinkers, Humanists and skeptics to discuss, debate and to meet casually. We meet in Southeast Michigan monthly.

A Skeptic is a person that does not take claims at face value. They feel that for an idea to be embraced, it needs to have been verified and proven as much as possible, through the scientific method and evidence. We also work to further discussion on skepticism in general and promote critical thinking.

MISkeptics takes a firm stand against groups that have used the term "skeptic" to promote conspiracy theories and junk science. Some of these groups include anti-vaccination, climate change deniers, and other people who use the term for denialism.

We at MISkeptics welcome discussion and debate from all points of view that can be presented with proper evidence. We feel that greater knowledge is attained and shared in that manner.
