A leading international publication in the realm of skeptical inquiry, Skeptic magazine examines extraordinary claims and revolutionary ideas, promotes critical thinking, and serves as an educational tool for those seeking a sound scientific viewpoint.
Each issue examines a specific theme and explores various social, scientific, and paranormal controversies. We investigate claims of the paranormal, pseudoscience, fringe groups, cults and claims between: science, pseudoscience, junk science, voodoo science, pathological science, bad science, non science and plain old nonsense.
Our contributors—leading scientists, scholars, investigative journalists, historians, professors, and teachers—are top experts in their fields. The magazine has been called “stimulating and provocative” by Carl Sagan, “clearly superior… gutsy” by Edward O. Wilson, and “the best journal in the field” by Stephen Jay Gould. Our editor-inchief, Dr. Michael Shermer, has been called the most prominent skeptic in America, and his monthly column in Scientific American, and his numerous books and media appearances have made Skeptic a respected voice in academia.
