NZ Skeptics Shop

Open for a limited time!

The NZ Skeptics Society is a non-profit body that exists to promote critical thinking.

Not all claims have equal value. For instance we all can believe that gravity exists without question, however we should ask for a little more evidence when an “expert” tells us that the Moa is alive and well and living in Moana!
If extraordinary claims are being made, you should demand extraordinary proof, especially if you are putting your money or your life on the line.

Many of the practices questioned by the NZ Skeptics take advantage of people at their most vulnerable – cancer patients seeking alternative cures, griefstricken bereaved seeking contact with the dead. They prey upon our trust, our hopes and our fears, and exploit our lack of specialist knowledge.

Please take a look around, and we would be delighted if you would like to join us.
