Hello all, we have some Skeptics visiting from US on the 18th July so we here at Skeptics HQ have decided to hold a social.

Please join us for some drinks and good conversation from 6.30pm on the 18th July in the Lord Edward.

Michael Nee joins us this month to discuss the moral arguments for giving to those in need, the importance of selecting effective causes and how to find them.

Michael is the founder of the Dublin Chapter of Giving What We Can (https://www.givingwhatwecan.org/), an organisation that's part of a growing community known as Effective Altruism. 

Join us in the Stag's Head from 8pm on Thursday 28th May.

Did you know that the most popular sporting figure among Twitter followers of Youth Defence is the former American footballer Tim Tebow? Or that the majority of followers of @Women4Shariah are men? Or that most @ProLifeAtheists describe themselves as Catholic?

In this talk Geoff Lillis will show how most “Irish” pro life groups are supported from the States, how most Intelligent Design fans are more interested in apologetics than science, how you can hack Twitter, and why skeptics should look at the metadata, not just the data.

Geoff Lillis is a programmer and blogger whose work has been featured in print media like the Independent (UK), the Atlantic, and discussed in books such as Savita: The Tragedy That Shook A Nation (Kitty Holland, 2013) and Everyday Sexism (Laura Bates, 2014). He specialises in pulling hard to find information from Twitter accounts and presenting it in a manner that can reveal some surprising trends.

 Over the past few weeks we have been graced with three new articles, on Scientology, TED talks and Wikipedia - head on over to give them a read. And if you have a skeptical article in mind, let us know! We'd love to keep the momentum going :)

The weather forecast is telling me it will be cloudy - so no need to feel bad about heading to the pub! A cool drink might be just what the day is missing.

The usual social-pub-meet-up type event with plenty of friendly skeptical/science/nerd chat. There is a recent drive to get Ireland's Wikipedian community more active and I'd love to chat to people to see if there is any skeptical interest around: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Ireland_Community

Hope to see many of you upstairs in the lounge for a drink and maybe even a cheeky plate of chips!

Dublin's finest skeptical meetup.
Introduction
Skeptics in the Pub is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship and social networking among skeptics, critical-thinkers, and other like-minded individuals. It provides an opportunity for skeptics and rationalists to talk, share ideas in a casual, relaxed atmosphere, and discuss whatever topical issues come to mind, as well as having fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.
