The Amaz!ng Meetings

Ever since I attended the first Amaz!ng Meeting, I have looked forward to the next one all year. These conferences are the greatest place to meet other skeptics from around the world, share ideas, hear from and chat with prominent skeptical thinkers, and just have enormous amounts of fun. If you go (and trust me, GO!), be sure to check in at the online JREF Forums to get a complete list of the unofficial activities. These turn a terrific conference into a community festival, and a group of brilliant, like-minded individuals into fast friends.

I hope to see you all there next year!

The Amaz!ng Meeting 2005  

The Amaz!ng Meeting 2005 - Las Vegas

Where we finish off the bits of Las Vegas still standing from TAM2! Richard Dawkins headlines the show. Over 500 skeptics attend (we have evidence!) Penn & Teller, Julia Sweeney, The Bad Astronomer, Michael Shermer, Jamy Ian Swiss, Banachek, and Ray Hall return. So do the Chocolate Challenge and the Skepchick's Pajama Party. Plus - late night jacuzzi discussions of quantum physics, pillowfights under strict Newtonian mechanics, and porn duels on The Strip!

The Amaz!ng Meeting 2004  

The Amaz!ng Meeting 2004 - Las Vegas

Where we do it all again, this time in Las Vegas, with Penn & Teller, Julia Sweeney, The Bad Astronomer, Michael Shermer, Jamy Ian Swiss, Eugenie Scott, Dean Cameron, Banachek, Lance Burton, Ray Hall, and so many more. The Chocolate Challenge and the Skepchick's Pajama Party are instituted, and crashed.

The Amaz!ng Meeting 2003  

The Amaz!ng Meeting 2003 - Fort Lauderdale

Where I travel to Florida, go to the Kennedy Space Center, meet a lot of friends for the first time, hear from some terrific speakers, and vow to return every year. The Amazing Randi, Michael Shermer of the Skeptics Society, Jamy Ian Swiss, Jack Horkheimer, Phil Plait - The Bad Astronomer, Hal Bidlack as Alexander Hamliton, Ray Hall, Jim Underdown of CFI West, Girl6 represents the forum, and more!
