Who attends LogiCal-LA?
Those who attend are interested in the discovery of new ideas, examining the natural world, and learning how to distinguish between what is probably true and those claims that have little or weak evidence. People who want to promote scientific education and critical thinking skills are the backbone of the conference!
What is scientific skepticism?
Scientific skeptics believe that empirical investigation of reality leads to the truth, and that the scientific method is best suited to this purpose. They attempt to evaluate claims based on verifiability and falsifiability and discourage accepting claims on faith or anecdotal evidence. Scientific skeptics often focus their criticism on claims they consider to be implausible, dubious or clearly contradictory to generally accepted science.
