the heck is this skepticon thing
Skepticon is a skeptic/freethinker/educational/awesome conference that is held annually in St Louis, MO.
It is the mission of Skepticon to support, promote, and develop free-thought, skeptic, and scientific communities through inclusive educational programming, and with an expressly social-justice oriented philosophy.
…which is really a fancy way of saying we all get together to share ideas, knowledge, and high fives.
Skepticon is also the largest FREE skeptic conference in the nation, and quite possibly the universe*. We accomplish this through a small team of dedicated workers, the help of a great many amazing volunteers, and of course–the support of people like you!
*we have PZ Myers working on verifying this
