MORE SPEAKERS TO BE ANNOUNCED

Seventeen years into the 21st centruty, and there appears to be no shortage of opportunitistic quacks seeking to peddle and profit from their pseudoscientific claims – wifi 'dangers', the resurgence of 'cupping' therapy, and Paleo diets that refuse to return to the stone age. One-by-one, they get debunked as skeptics arise to administer scientific evidence and critical thinking. Yet every now and then it dawns on us that 'one-by-one' may not be enough, and that we ought to call on  many of these great skeptics to meet at one time, in one place, with one common goal. Enter Skepticon Australia, the ideas festival for anybody and everybody who refuses to be fleeced by frauds of all sorts.

Brought to you by a partnership between Australian Skeptics and Think Inc. (the team behind the Australian tours of renowned critical thinkers such as Dr Neil deGrasse Tyson, Sam Harris, James 'the Amazing' Randi, and Dr Ben Goldacre), Skepticon Australia 2017 is a joint effor between two leading organisations seeking to imbue the public with skills in reason and rationality. With many exciting guests to be announced soon, this ideas festival in November 2017 will take aim at prevailing and emergent claims of pseudoscience, the  paranormal and just plain bullsh*t in the world today.

JOIN US IN OUR QUEST FOR TRUTH

Do you believe in the importance of questioning unsubstantiated and untruthful claims? We do too. Join us as Australia’s most prominent speakers explore the role of scientific method and critical thinking in society, and the consequence of ignoring them.

YOU CAN PLAY A CRUCIAL ROLE IN ENCOURAGING FELLOW AUSTRALIANS AND THE MEDIA TO ADOPT A CRITICAL ATTITUDE TOWARDS PSEUDOSCIENCE, PARANORMAL IDEAS, AND QUESTIONABLE CLAIMS.
