Triangle SkeptiCamp 2024 was Amazing. Were You There?

What we’re about

The mission of Triangle Skeptics is to promote science literacy, critical thinking, and media literacy as tools for advancing knowledge and decision making.

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.

How we go about it

Skeptics in the PubCulture Club
Held on the third Wednesday of each month, these events implement the internationally-popular SitP format – one part featured lecture, one part social gathering, zero parts pretenseThe fourth Wednesday of the month finds us gathered to discuss a cultural work of some description. Often it’s a book, but it could also be a film or a long-form essay.
