We are Skeptics.

We care about the truth and other people.

That’s why we do what we do.

People make choices based on what they believe is true, if their beliefs are mistaken those choices can get them in serious trouble. Brighton Skeptics Society was was created with the intention of empowering people to make well informed choices and avoid dangerous mistakes.

We do this by helping people learn and practice critical thinking skills, encouraging curiosity and spreading awareness of the common ways in which our brains can mislead us. In other words by promoting scientific skepticism.

Skepticism is a method of assessing claims and getting closer to the truth, to find out more check out these resources.

Brighton Skeptics Society engages in outreach, education, community building, advocacy and fundraising in and around Brighton. Our core values are reason and compassion and we strive to conduct ourselves in accordance with both while retaining our sense of humour.

If you want to meet us or get involved please come along to one of our events, or drop us an email we’d love to hear from you.
