Central Ohioans for Rational Inquiry promotes critical thought and science education in Columbus, Ohio. More →


Central Ohioans for Rational Inquiry is a group of people who are interested in learning about critical thinking and the process of scientific skepticism. We tend to focus on analyzing topics such as paranormal or supernatural activity, alternative medicine, conspiracy theories and general psuedoscience. We also work to further scientific literacy and support scientific education.

Our members come from all walks of life and have varying levels of interest and experience with skepticism. Some have been skeptics for years; some are just learning about it. We’re open to anyone, regardless of background or expertise, who to wants to share ideas, collaborate on projects, or just have fun.

We host both regular social gatherings and more serious initiatives. For a list of our upcoming events, check out our calendar. For online discussion and notifications of new events, join our group.
