What are some good skeptic organizations?
My upcoming graphic design class assignment is to pick a cause we care about, pick an organization involved with it, and make four posters for it.

I kind of struggled to think of something, but eventually managed to land on the concept of doing posters for skepticism.

I've poked around on my own a bit and have one I can use, but thought I'd ask you guys if you could suggest any good skeptic organizations? Maybe you've got a better one.

(And yeah, I'm sure Thinking Atheist counts as a skeptic organization, but I'd really rather go with something more general, that doesn't have a title that implies specifically skepticism towards religion. )

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Center for Inquiry is my go to for general skepticism, after the demise of JREF.

I'm suspicious of any organization that will allow the likes of me to join.....


Nod to W.C.

I'm a double atheist. I don't believe in your god or your politician.

JREF became the International Skeptics Forum, although I guess that's not really an "organization".

There's the Comittee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI) -- formerly CSICOP, and publisher of the Skeptical Inquirer.

Also the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which has a specific focus on religion and atheism.

Michael Schermer's organization has been around for a while.

I've recently grown rudimentary legs and am now making the move from water to land.

Snopes

My strategy of ignoring my problems until they disappear never seems to work out for me. ...I'll try to get around to dealing with that in the near future.

Comittee for Skeptical Inquiry's giving me a hard time actually getting to any website.

Center for Inquiry looks like it could be useful, though.

Yeah, that's the one I found before asking.


I think I'll probably end up asking if I can use more than one organization. Thanks for the suggestions so far, guys.


(And I'll just tuck that International Skeptics Forum away for spare time reading later. Wink )

You could count the ACLU as a skeptical organization, since having finely-tuned critical thinking skills is essential to their work.

I'd go with the movement to bring back the bush.

Full on hippie muff.
A cause worth getting behind IMO
