The goal of Skepacabra is to promote the methods of critical thinking and scientific skepticism. Some frequent topics being discussed are: creationism/intelligent design, alternative medicine, psychic claims, ghost hunters, UFO sightings, Big Foot, chupacabra, and all matter of bullshit. In fact, if you’ve seen the TV shows Penn & Teller’s Bullshit or Mythbusters then you probably already have a good idea of the kinds of things Skepacabra is about.

If you were wondering what the name, Skepacabra means, it’s the name the author has assigned to Chupacabra’s skeptical cousin. Chupacabra or “Goat-Sucker,” is a legendary Latin-American crypto-zoological creature that mysteriously turns up now and again to attack and drink the blood of livestock, and every once and a while someone reports having seen it. He’s kinda like the Latin-American Bigfoot. So Skepacabra is the skeptical response to Chupacabra and other paranormal or just plain weird claims.
