Good Thinking Society

The goal of the Good Thinking Society is “to encourage curiosity and promote rational thinking”, hence the positive title of the organisation. At the same time, this inevitably means battling against irrationality and pseudoscience. Good Thinking will be initiating some modest projects aimed at highlighting quackery, encouraging good journalism and supporting grassroots activity.

They hope to grow slowly, building on existing projects and developing new ones. It is hard to predict the topics that will become their focus, but in essence they are pro-science and pro-evidence, which means they are anti-woo and anti-quack. In short, they like skepticism, but not cynicism. They like nerds and geeks, but they hate bogus things without a jot of evidence.
