How did learn about Skepticism and "Skeptics in the Pub?"

I was looking for people who share similiar disposition regarding religiosity in HK and I came across the group <Hong Kong Atheists> from FB. So I joined it. From there I'm led here.

Have you ever been a member of a Skeptical organization anywhere else in the world?

Yes, the Internet.

Do you have any questions or comments about the nature of our activities? Skepticism is not a universally agreed upon term as so can be misleading.

There are still many things i need to learn about skepticism but in general i believe it is for everyone's good so long as its goal is constructive.

Tell the group and the organizers a little bit about yourself. Include things like nationality, places you've lived, things you like to do, etc.

Would like to call myself Hongkongese, or Hongkese for short lmao. i'm not big on being 'Chinese' although ethnically that's what i actually am. Born and raised in a post British colony whose size is perhaps about 1% of the great China but hardly China-like. I grow up submerged in a mix of both Chinese cultures and western influences but feel less connected to my ancestral origins than the prokaryotes that drifted in some chemical cocktails 3.6 billions years ago. Now evolved and participating in the mass struggle of class and competition for reproduction I wonder if my single-cellular ancestors might have been happier without a central nervous system or genitals.

Introduction

Ex-English teacher. Now software student. Weary of the rising sea, highly anti-theistic-BS guy, not as much of an -ist there as i'm a humanist.
