Bay Area Skeptics on Facebook

We're on Facebook!

We've started a Bay Area Skeptics page on Facebook so we can connect with more Bay Area skeptics, and you can interact with us.

Joining our group is another way that you can find out about our upcoming events; our Skeptics in the Pub gatherings, our lectures, and other activities. It's also a great way to meet other skeptics, both local, and global.

See you there!
