Welcome to Cape Ann Skeptics

We are a group of people interested in exploring the world with a skeptical point of view.

Our definition of skepticism is "rational, critical, and scientific thinking." We are not cynics nor contrarians. Rather, we are people who look at the world rationally.

Skeptics in the Pub on Cape Ann


Like Skeptics in the Pub meetings around the world, we gather as an opportunity for skeptics to meet one another and share ideas.

Meetings are generally scheduled for the third Tuesday of every month. There is no cost or registration.

On Nov.15, Sharon Hill, creator of The Media Guide to Skepticism (http://doubtfulnews.com/media-guide-to-skepticism/) the foremost skeptically-themed news site and its podcast, will join us by Skype. She will discuss what it really means to practice modern skepticism. She says, “Lots of people say, ‘I’m skeptical,’ but what do they mean? Are they applying critical thinking? Or, are they denying the facts?” She believes more than ever before, those who value science and reason must insert a strong voice into the media landscape.

We meet in the function room of The Pilot House Restaurant, 3 Porter St., Gloucester.


   6:00 Begin gathering to socialize and order food and drink
   6:45 The program begins with short videos and miscellaneous fun

Everyone interested in skepticism is welcome!
