30 Years

2022 marks SKEPTIC’s 30th year in print, examining extraordinary claims and promoting science, since 1992. To celebrate this milestone, starting with issue 27.1, all issues going forward will be in full-colour, from cover-to-cover! Plus, Skeptic will now be printed on totally new paper stock, similar to National Geographic, Discover, and Scientific American. Though issue 27.1 is physically thinner than previous issues, it contains the same number of pages, with fewer ads, and therefore more content!

Here’s what you’ll find in Skeptic Magazine 27.1 (2022): A special section on transgender matters — an overview of the debate, research, and policies; supporting kids who identify as transgender or who are experiencing gender dysphoria (marked distress at an incongruence between gender identity and biological sex) • Trans Athletes and Conflicting Rights • Why Christians Should Accept the Theory of Evolution • 5G Rollout Reawakens Wireless Fear • Two Tributes to Edward O. Wilson • Eyewitness Testimony: Engaging with People and Accounts of Extraordinary Claims Without Evoking Anger • Mytho-history: The “Evolution” of Adam & Eve • Wild Psychotherapy: Questionable Advice • A review essay on The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity.

The print edition will begin shipping mid-March to current subscribers. Pre-order the print edition, or download the digital edition today.
