Australian Skeptics

Australian SkepticsThe Australian Skeptics Inc. is a group that investigates the paranormal and pseudo-science from a responsible scientific viewpoint.

The Australian Skeptics were founded in Victoria in 1980, after a visit to Australia by James Randi, who encouraged its establishment based upon the USA Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal.

It grew from a Melbourne based organization to a national one over the following years and currently has some 2100 members.

Most people are familiar with the more popular subjects that we investigate such as astrology, fortune telling, UFOs and crop circles. Did you know that we also investigate topics like fundamentalism, Feng Shui, subluxations and vitamin supplements?
