Scientific skepticism involves the application of skeptical philosophy, critical-thinking skills, and knowledge of science and its methods to empirical claims, while remaining agnostic or neutral to non-empirical claims (except those that directly impact the practice of science).

Scientific Skepticism is one of CFI Canada’s core areas of focus, as described in our Strategic Plan.
