What was your path to skepticism?

The right one. Ha, ha, ha! No, I really don't know how to answer this. I just make my own decisions on things. I'm not paranoid or militant in my way of thinking, but I do question and think about stuff before I decide where I stand. Perhaps if more individuals would take the time and effort to think for themselves, there would be less hatred, violence, and injustice in our world. (Go ahead and roll your eyes.) There would also be less ignorance. This would be a good discussion topic: group vs individual! Because I think it's easy to follow blindly and that is the danger of groups that frown upon diverse perspectives/ideologies and that's how they can 'brainwash' or control their members into working toward their hidden agenda perhaps. But in numbers there is strength. And that's why this meetup group is an important resource. It will allow strong, intelligent, diverse, and kind individuals to come together and unite. Making our group even stronger!

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

My schedule is wide open for now (not working).

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

By the lack of knowledge? Yes. But to be fair, I don't know nearly enough as I should or would like to... so I think what matters is that one is willing to learn and accept the truth.

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

I'm open to a wide selection, but just recently had a strange conversation with someone who insisted that there are multiple realities. Say what? I'm I crazy, or isn't there one reality, which can be perceived differently? He also was strongly upset that I didn't know what 'kundalini' (sp?) or 'tapping it away' meant. (He explained that you just need to tap your finger on your forehead repeatedly to relax. He would not accept that I was not interested in anyone tapping my forehead, for that would annoy me instead of relaxing me.)

Introduction

Hello! New to this site. Was invited to skepticamp via another group, so here I am. Hadn't joined sooner just because I am beyond skeptical, I just don't buy it (nonsense, that is). Also, may I join even though I am not a scientist nor a genius?
