Skeptics -

Join fellow lovers of science and reason in east phoenix at OHSO Brewery. OHSO is a craft-beer-lover's dream with great food and atmosphere. There's no agenda other than hanging out with fellow skeptics and having lively conversations about pretty much anything. Common topics are complementary and alternative medicine (homeopathy, acupuncture), conspiracy theories (vaccine myths, 9/11 "truth"), paranormal claims (UFOs, ghosts), and anything else to which we can apply critical thinking (which is everything). Join us for the fun!

Q: What is a skeptic?

A: "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 (http://www.skepticblog.org/2008/11/17/skeptic-the-name-thing-again/)
