Take the mic!

We’re opening the stage up to our audience for our social event in September!

Have you ever had to bite your tongue about something so that you wouldn’t offend those around you who aren’t as skeptical of things as you are? Have you ever had a question you couldn’t openly discuss with your family because it conflicts with their beliefs?

We’ve all been there – whether the topic is religion, alt med, paranormal beliefs or political thoughts and ideas. Be silent no longer, for Bath Skeptics has a solution! We will be hosting a ‘skeptical open mic night’ where audience members can take the microphone for five to ten minutes to discuss a skeptical subject they feel passionate about, share their ideas, or to ask their questions to an open audience for feedback.

Think of it as one huge discussion about the things that matter to you with like minded people, in the relaxed atmosphere of a pub. We will confirm a date soon (our venue is currently going through a refurb and isn’t open). However, if you are interested in taking part we’d love to hear what you’d like to talk about, or what questions you’d like to open up to the audience so that we can start forming a schedule for the night.

How to create a cult…

Scientology has been in the public eye for a very long time, & much criticism has been levelled their way, the most recent being the case against Cllr. John Dixon in what was termed the ‘Stupid Scientology’ case.

Martin Poulter has been a critic of Scientology for a long time, here he explains what his talk (that he delivered to Lewes Skeptics, but will be delivering for Bath Skeptics in June) is going to be about.

Martin also recently appeared on Channel 4’s ‘4thought.tv’ in the week that marked the centenary of the birth of Scientology founder, Ron L Hubbard. Watch him here.

Don’t leave it there though! Come along on June 21st to learn more about Scientology and how there’s more to the ‘religion’ than you probably know.

“As somebody who thought she was well researched on the truth of Scientology, I once interviewed Martin about the religion and his criticism of it and I came away from the interview in a state of shock at what I had learned.
When you listen to Martin, what he says brings you a sense of discomfort that leaves you wanting to learn more. ” Hayley Stevens, Righteous Indignation Podcast
