Talks by leading atheists, skeptics, and critical thinkers; and debates on the belief in god with leading scholars.
Skepticon is an annual skeptic/freethinker/atheist/awesome conference that is held annually in Springfield, MO.
It is the mission of Skepticon to support, promote, and develop free-thought skeptic, and scientific communities through inclusive educational programming.
…which is really a fancy way of saying we all get together to share ideas, knowledge, and high fives.
Skepticon is also the largest free skeptic conference in the nation, and quite possibly the universe*. We accomplish this through a small team of dedicated workers, the help of a great many amazing volunteers, and of course–the support of people like you!
*we have PZ Myers working on verifying this
