There are many websites set up to air skeptical opinions particularly concerning claims for the effectiveness of remedies or treatments for a wide range of medical conditions which are not endorsed by conventional medicine, and to criticise unconventional "fringe" theories that are not generally accepted. The standard of these sites (and the standards of arguments within them) vary considerably, and it would be a mistake to assume that these always present the fringe theories fairly, or the scientific arguments (for or against) rigorously. Among these sites are:

Organisations

  • International directory of skeptic organisations
  • James Randi Educational Foundation- "an educational resource on the paranormal, pseudoscientific, and the supernatural."
  • New England Sceptical Society The Society is " dedicated to the promotion of science and reason, the investigation of paranormal and pseudoscientific claims, especially within New England, improved standards of education for science and critical thinking skills."
    • The Skeptics Guide to the Universe; a weekly Podcast talkshow produced by the New England Skeptical Society in association with the James Randi Educational Foundation: discussing news and topics from the world of the paranormal, fringe science, and controversial claims from a scientific point of view.
  • Committee for Skeptical Inquiry Formerly known as the "Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal", the Committee "encourages the critical investigation of paranormal and fringe-science claims from a responsible, scientific point of view and disseminates factual information about the results of such inquiries to the scientific community and the public."
