Welcome to SkeptiForum! What would you like to do today?
I would like to learn more about SkeptiForum and its philosophy.
I would like to browse fora for topics I'm interested in.
I would like to look for information in the Resource Guide.
I would like to use the SkeptiSearch tool to find specific content.

The mission of the Skepti-Forum project ( is to offer a variety of forums for rational, respectful, and evidence-based exploration of important current issues related to science and technology, especially for those subjects surrounded by confusion, misinformation, and misconception. We promote the tools of skeptical inquiry and scientific reasoning to nurture an open atmosphere for exchanging ideas, sharing disagreement, and asking questions. We also believe that both experts and non-experts can contribute tools, resources, and ideas for thinking about science and scientific claims.

Our goals:

1. To create easily-accessible communities across social media platforms where the public can ask questions about scientific issues.

2. To provide resources for science communicators engaging the public on social networks.

3. To challenge less-effective science communication strategies while offering evidence-based alternatives.

4. To demonstrate to the public the application of critical thinking strategies on public scientific issues.
