What we’re about
Welcome to the Auckland Skeptics in the Pub meetup group. This group is part of a larger, socially orientated group of skeptics. Details at http://skepticsinthepub.net.nz/
"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." - Dr. Steven Novella of The New England Skeptics and The Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast.

Want to chat with interesting people who share your skeptical worldview?
As well as our local in-person meetups around the country, we've decided to run a national virtual meetup every month. Whether you're an in-person regular, a skeptic from from a place that doesn't have regular meetings, or even living abroad, we'd love to have you join us.
Bring along a beer if you have any, along with any topics you want to talk about, and we'll see you on the interwebs.
