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?
Maybe it was an asteroid impact, a nuclear war, or a viral pandemic. Whatever the cause, the world as we know it is over and humanity must start again. What would you need to know to not only survive in the immediate aftermath, but avert another Dark Ages and accelerate the rebooting of civilisation from scratch? The Knowledge is a grand thought experiment on the behind-the-scenes fundamentals of how our world works, and what drove the progression of civilisation over the centuries.
