Chicago Skeptics is an entirely volunteer-run, informal group promoting critical thinking and skeptical inquiry in and around Chicago. We’re coming up on 1,100 members on Meetup, over 500 skeptics in our Facebook group, and more than 400 Twitter followers. And that’s just online!
In real life,
Clark Kent, mild mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper our entirely participant-supported group hosts monthly Meetups (Skeptics in the Pub), book clubs, museum outings, an annual Skepticamp “un-conference” and so much more. We try to keep as many of our events as possible FREE and accessible to anyone who would like to attend.
We’ve got a pretty large geek quotient over here, so be prepared for more nerdy references and jokes. We’ve got a lot of ladies, but this ain’t a pickup joint. We all love a good science, but we’ve been known to get silly. And we haven’t found God yet, but we’re not an atheist group. Chicago Skeptics promotes skepticism, science, rationality and the free exchange of ideas among curious individuals.
We welcome your input, feedback and participation. Have an idea that would make Chicago Skeptics even more awesome? Contact us here.
