For over 25 years, Skeptic has been on the forefront of skeptical inquiry and groundbreaking science, publishing insightful articles on a vast number of subjects including: evolution, creationism, cults, revisionism, conspiracy theories, near-death and out-of-body experiences, mass hysterias, urban myths, altered states of consciousness, science vs. pseudoscience, fraud and hoaxes, history vs. pseudohistory, magic and the paranormal, the use and abuse of theory and statistics, medical and psychiatric claims, the scope and limitations of science and technology, gender and race issues in science, artificial intelligence, cultural influences on science and scientific influences on culture, the capacities and limitations of the human body, and many more…

Our editor-in-chief, Dr. Michael Shermer, has been called the most prominent skeptic in America. His numerous books and media appearances, as well as his 214 monthly columns in Scientific American have made Skeptic magazine a respected voice.

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. The magazine includes lively and thought-provoking articles, debates, book reviews, and essays from leading scientists, scholars, investigative journalists, historians, professors, and teachers.  read less
