With the exciting upcoming events put on by Edinburgh Skeptics in August, including Skeptics on the Fringe and Skepticamp, it would be the perfect time to delve into skepticism in this beautiful city. If you’ve never been to a skeptical event before, you’ll be really surprised how easy it is to get talking to complete strangers. The commonality of being a critical thinker at least rules out the likelihood of someone asking you your star sign as an ice-breaker*.
As ‘luck’ would have it (okay; by design really) if you are a female skeptic, you have an opportunity to meet up with other skeptics in Edinburgh before the fantastic plethora of events you have prepared for you there! There will be a ‘Ladies Who Do Skepticism (& Coffee)’ meet-up on Saturday the 29th July, at ‘A Taste of Italy Caffe‘ at 2pm. Whether you are a total newbie, or a well-seasoned skeptic, please do come along for very casual skeptical and non-skeptical chat. The ‘Caffe’ can be found between the Playhouse and RBS branch at the top of Leith Walk, and we’ll meet at the tables in the back. Please RSVP here on Facebook or by emailing email@example.com so we can have a rough idea of numbers. Also, feel free to ask any questions or make suggestions to the same email address! For more information about why LWDS was started, see the ‘about’ section or listen to some of the interviews on the podcasts from the ‘Press and Podcast’ pages.
You may even meet people who you can go along with to the speaker event the very next day, which looks set to be a great talk. JF Derry will be talking about Edinburgh, Evolution and Enlightenment under the title ‘Darwin in Scotland’.
