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. Everyone interested in skepticism is welcome and there is no cost or registration required.

On September 16, Mary and Mark Warhol will persent "The Joy of Critical Thinking."

Critical Thinking is an essential component of being a skeptic. Mary Warhol will clarify what is meant by critical thinking while Mark Warhol will present thinking exercises to prepare everyone for the complex problems out there in the real world.

Our October meeting will be special in many ways.
First, it's on the second Tuesday (Oct. 14) rather than the third.
Second, it will be at the Cape Ann Community Cinema.
Third, it will start at 7:30.
And most importantly, it will be the award-winning movie An Honest Liar, a biography of James Randi.

More details to follow soon.

We meet in the back room at La Trattoria, 64 Main St., Gloucester.
(See map below.)

  6:00-6:45 - Come, meet skeptics, order food and drink
  6:45 - The presentation begins

Everyone interested in skepticism is welcome!
