Junior Skeptic Magazine is a magazine that Lisa Simpson reads. Its purpose is apparently to educate readers about paranormal phenomena while seeking to debunk them and/or provide rational, real-world explanations for them.


When Homer told the family during breakfast that he had met an alien the night before, Lisa told him that according to Junior Skeptic Magazine, the chances of another form of life actually coming into contact with Earth were 175 million to one.
