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.

June 27th, we will present the northeast premiere of Principles of Curiosity a documentary written and produced by Brian Dunning, founder of

The movie will be at Cape Ann Cinema and Stage, 21 Main St. Gloucester, 7:30 P.M. Admittance is Free! “This documentary explores the pseudoscience that permeates pop culture and offers a simple process that anyone can follow to learn to tell what’s real from what’s not,” said Dunning. “It’s designed for people of all ages with an emphasis on teaching students how to critically evaluate what attempts to pass as the truth.”

Everyone interested is welcome!
