What was your path to skepticism?

As a child I gave some credit to various pseudoscientific beliefs, but with increasing mental maturity and more interest in science my doubts kept increasing. I became a skeptic at about age 14.

What is the best day and time for you to meet?


Are you alarmed by the state of scientific knowledge among the general population in America?

Very alarmed!

Are there issues or topics you'd especially like to discuss?

No special preference.


I have been interested in skepticism since I was teenager.

    Hi Miguel,
    I just joined this group and want to make you aware that I was spammed with a link to dating site from a member named "Tom". Please check under my name, Jhan K. to see what I mean. Just making you aware of this for other new members. I have blocked this person. Looking forward to memorable experiences with this group, thanks!.

    Hello Miguel! It's been awhile since we've talked a bit of math in group. I've been busy at the IDES' work net Chicago office but I would like to ask you about developing an equation that would link the work force with the customer demographic base in order to establish the true value of an employee to his ( or her) employer so that the employer can hire more people as an investment. Please give me a call at 1-[masked] to let me know when we can meet. Thanks, Miguel.
