WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Being skeptical does not mean being stodgy or cynical, it simply means adopting a position where evidence is the central guide for belief or non-belief in an idea or proposition.
- Skeptics Australia (Tas) Inc is the Tasmanian branch of the
Australian Skeptics organisation.
- We exist to foster the very important idea that belief in
anything should be no more than provisional until some supporting
evidence is found.
- We hope to make our community, and society in general, a
better place to be in by encouraging people to think critically and
- We aim to counter a lot of very silly and superstitious
ideas for which there is no evidence.
- We aim to protect people from scamsters, quacks, fraudulent
operators and deluded people.
- We provide a forum for like-minded people to discuss their
ideas and thoughts with each other.
