Welcome to Guildford Skeptics in the Pub. We host speakers on subjects such as science, superstition, alternative medicine, philosophy and religion* in the relaxed atmosphere of the function room of the Stoke Pub and Pizzeria.
Speakers come from a wide range of backgrounds and viewpoints but, ultimately, are skeptical. Skepticism, put basically, is an insistence on robust evidence for claims; claims of the efficacy of alternative medicine, the existence of mystical beings, crytozoological oddities and deities; the claims of psychics, astrological predictions... and more!
Guildford Skeptics is one of a collective group of Skeptics in the Pub Groups in the South East - conveniently named the South East Skeptics' Society! What does that mean for you, and for our speakers? Well, there's a whole page on it, here
*not an exhaustive list!

What's the talk about?
The Z List Dead List is a comedy/history talk about obscure people from history. It runs as a regular comedy show in London but Iszi is taking it out on the road and devised a talk just for skeptics.
Iszi Lawrence got into skepticism for one reason. She liked woo. Lots of woo. She also likes history. There are countless messiahs, quacks, prophets and charlatans in History and each one deserves recognition. She is going to force you to enjoy the fun side of quackery and also tell you how these people managed to succeed in against common sense and reason. Also there will be a vote for your favourite. And a competition.
