What we're about

This is the official Meetup of New York City Skeptics (http://nycskeptics.org/), an all-volunteer nonprofit that promotes science and critical thinking.

For more information about us and our other activities visit www.nycskeptics.org (http://nycskeptics.org/).

You may also be interested in our official podcast, Rationally Speaking (http://www.rationallyspeakingpodcast.org/).

We also organize the Northeast Conference on Science & Skepticism (http://www.necss.org) (NECSS).

Had enough of astrologers, psychics, homeopaths, and spirit channelers? Yearning to talk with someone rational for awhile? Join us for our mothly discussion on critical thinking, science, and skeptical inquiry. Make sure you RSVP promptly, seating will be limited!

To keep the meetups friendly though, we will continue to, at least try, to stay away from controversial topics. The forbidden topics are religion, politics and global warming.

Drinking Skeptically

The Half Pint

Drinking Skeptically promotes fellowship and networking among skeptics, critical-thinkers, and like-minded individuals in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. We discuss the issues of the day and whatever else is on our minds. But most of all, we have fun! Don't drink? Don't let that stop you from joining; we are happy to have you! Visiting New York from out of town? Stop on by! Skeptics are a friendly bunch and there's always room for one more... See you there!

SkeptiCamp NYC 2020

Online event

Skepticamp NYC 2020 is now accepting registrations! This year will be an all-virtual conference on Saturday, December 5th. Registration is free of charge. Speakers are required to register on our website. Non-speaker attendees are encouraged to do so as well to join our community. https://skepticampnyc.org SkeptiCamp is like a science conference, except that its content is provided by the attendees themselves! Anyone can be a presenter, as long as your topic has something to do with science and/or skepticism. We hope that the sessions and presentations given at SkeptiCamp emerge as lively discussions, rather than straight-forward seminars. Presenters should try to welcome a bombardment of challenging questions, after their introduction to their topic is made. At least that is the ideal. One can also opt for the more conventional, boring lecture format if they really want to. The event will open for socializing at 9am, lectures go from 10am until 6pm. The lectures will be on many topics and will each be half an hour long. Late arrivals welcome. There will be lunch and rest breaks. To be a speaker you *MUST* register on the SkeptiCamp website: http://www.skepticampNYC.org. RSVPing on Meetup is not enough.
