The Association for Skeptical Enquiry

Casting a critical eye over suspect science, dubious claims and bizarre beliefs


Support ASKE by becoming a Member
or Making a Donation

The aims and principles of ASKE are clearly spelled out here. If you support these why not join ASKE or make a donation? Your subscription and any donations you offer will be used exclusively to promote these aims and principles. As a member you may just wish to be kept informed about what is happening on 'the skeptic scene' through the ASKE website, its publications and emails you are sent about matters of skeptical interest. Or you may wish to be more actively involved, for example by: contributing to the ASKE email discussion network, writing features for the Skeptical Intelligencer (including reviewing books supplied by ASKE and promoting any work you yourself are doing in the field of skeptical enquiry); helping to test people claiming to have paranormal abilities; and being available to answer queries from the media involving your specialist area.

The annual fee is (and has been for many years) £10 or you may pay £30 for three years.

However you may join part way through the year or even quite late.
