Rational, sceptical, analysis has allowed great advances in our knowledge these last centuries. Unfortunately mysticism, superstition and credulity still have a strong presence in our society. Sometimes because the desire for something to be true overcomes common sense, but often because someone profits from actually promoting falsehood and deceit.
Our objective is to provide freely the knowledge and the methods that may provide each person with a better protection against these situations.
Several worrying facts have motivated the founding of this association:
The growth of pseudo scientific
fraud: Scientific knowledge is so vast nowadays that no one can be an
expert on everything. So it can be easy for anyone to claim expertise
and defraud a credulous victim. The so called 'Alternative' Medicine is
an example of this danger.
