Following up on one of last month’s articles by Patrick Stokes, “No you are not entitled to you opinion” (Theconversaation.com/no-you-are-not-entitled-to-your-opinion-9978)  One of this month’s discussions pieces is from the blog Sounds Sciency by Sharon Hill entitled “Over Reliance on Science”.  I am pairing it with another blog post by Kyle Hill entitled “The Life of Death”.  In view of the abundance of “scientific” ghost hunting programs being broadcast the days, he makes some astute observations about ghosts and haunting.  Both pieces can be found at the csiop website. http://www.csicop.org/specialarticles/show/over-reliance_on_science/  and

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
