Skeptics in the pub

Skeptics in the pub

Skeptics are interested in examining the scientific support (or lack of it) for claims of things such as alternative health practices, creationism and extra-sensory perception. Here a group of skeptics have their first ever 'Skeptics in the pub' meeting in September 2009 in Wellington. The gathering was part of a larger, socially orientated group of skeptics that met in pubs in other New Zealand cities.
