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.

Sept. 20th, Cape Ann Skeptics is very excited to be sponsoring an evening of videos and discussion at Cape Ann Community Cinema. The theme of the evening will be science and how facts and data can be distorted, particularly in the news. We’ll be looking at some of the ways science, the scientific method and rationality are being assaulted in every day life. Videos and short presentations will be followed by discussions planned to include the audience. An optional pizza buffet ($12) will be available. Snacks and drinks, including beer and wine, are available for purchase. Admission is free to the public. Pizza will be available beginning at 6:30 and the program begins at 7:00.
Everyone is welcome. Come, watch and share your thoughts. We think it will be fun and informative.

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!
