Introduction

I moved to Hong Kong 5 years ago (2007) and I brought an old Sony Walkman with me. When I got here, my wife bought me an iPod. That changed everything. I started listening to Podcasts and then discovered the SGU. I never looked back.

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

I can't wait to meet more skeptics in Hong Kong. I really want to meet people with whom I can have logical and rational conversations.

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

SGU, Point of Inquiry, Unbelievable, Free Thought Radio, etc, etc.

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.

What's your sacred cow? Do you believe in nationalism? Do you believe in acupuncture? Do you think america really put a man on the moon? Everyone has a belief they've never subjected to critical analysis - even if they call themselves a skeptic. Think about it.

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.

    Hi David
    Thanks for the message - yes, I am familiar with my younger, American counterpart who shares my name! I am another skeptical Rebecca Watson - who would have believed there could be two of me. I am the original, she is merely a copy cat ;)

    And if that wasn't enough excitement for one afternoon we fell right into this scandal: http://www.theatlanticwire.com/nation...­­

    At the meeting today I found myself espousing this and I hadn't even listened to it until my ride home: http://www.pointofinquiry.org/david_b...­­
