We believe that reasoned debate and discussion can help to de-escalate tensions in light of the current political climate. The Skeptics Peace Pledge is intended to provide common ground for everyone who believes that through dialogue, we can create understanding, expand our views and solve problems.

As a skeptic who believes in the potential value and goodness of human beings, I pledge to:

  • Promote respectful dialogue:
    • Listen before replying
    • Minimize interruptions
    • Ask questions
    • Explore alternative viewpoints
    • Try to find common ground
  • Engage in conversation with those of differing opinions
  • Allow others to express their views, whether I agree or not
  • Practice non-violence and control my feelings, rather than be controlled by them
  • Discourage those who promote violence
  • Be open-minded and admit any personal biases
  • Value evidence over dogma
  • Do my research before making judgments
  • Recognize that people can change their views
  • Recognize that I might be wrong

The Skeptic's Peace Pledge was developed by Mythicist Milwaukee, a secular organization focused on promoting dialogue about culture, religion and freedom of thought.
