Welcome to Skepti-Forum.
Skepti-Forum is an independent, volunteer-run project built for encouraging rational dialogue amongst the global community on scientific issues in society. Our bottom-up community discourse aims to advance scientific reasoning and skepticism while challenging misinformation and public manipulation.
The SF community seeks to foster reasoned discussion of public scientific debates which affect society. Our forums on various social networks are set up to answer questions, provide information, evaluate sources, and practice skepticism. Discussion should focus on facts, credible sources, and scientific literature. For a productive discussion, each person should adopt the principle of charity and help create an open atmosphere encouraging a mutual exchange of ideas. The forums are a collective puzzle solving activity rather than an arena of gladiators vying to defeat opponents. Some puzzle pieces might not fit so well, but flipping the table isn’t going to help anyone see the bigger picture.
Some of the topics we discuss here: GMO, Fracking, Nuclear Power, Climate Science, Fluoride, Medicine/Alternative Medicine, Parenting, Veterinary Science.
