Attention Atlanta Skeptics!

By Phil Plait | February 4, 2009 8:00 am

If you’re a skeptic in the Atlanta area, then you should really check out the Atlanta Skepticamp, a one-day meeting this weekend on February 7. It’s a user-supplied meeting, where skeptics themselves are the show. Attendees make the presentations, and it’s totally interactive. I attended the Denver Skepticamp last year and had a great time, so I strongly urge you to check out the one in Atlanta. The JREF, by the way, is a happy and proud sponsor of the event.

  1. Also in the atlanta area is the Infidel Guy, a great show for skeptics. Just a little note.

    There’s no way it can top Jesus Camp. ;-)

    Thanks for the plug, Phil! And the check :)

    It’s going to be beyond awesome, y’all. It’s going to make the Denver skeptics jealous.

  5. Thanks Phil!

    Me and Swoopy will be doing our FIRST live Skepticality at the event as well! :)

    @Derek:

    Woohoo, I can’t wait to hear it! Your live panel shows are great fun.

  7. Finally! Something in my area!

    *besides Dragon*Con

  8. I’d love to go to this (or Dragon*Con for that matter). Instead enjoying the sands of Qatar. Have fun!

  9. Oh yeah, we Denver skeptics are a bit jealous that it is Atlanta (and not us) that is taking the Skepticamp idea to the next level.

    However, come May just watch for the event that we are putting together!

    Thanks for the support, Phil. Should be a great weekend. Too bad you couldn’t make it here to join us. Well, gotta go finish my presentation.

  11. I fixed http://www.atlantaskeptics.com. Now has all the correct info. :p

  12. Thanks, Phil. It should be a fun time for all!
