In 1976, the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP) was created due to the glut of paranormal stories in the media. From the start, members included notable scientists such as Carl Sagan, Steven Jay Gould and Isaac Asimov as well as many others.
Renamed the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI), this group examines claims of the supernatural and has found many to be false. They invite leading scientists from a variety of fields to evaluate claims. Anyone can join and help promote scientific inquiry and critical thinking.
