Re: [skeptics-182] Truth Decay

I would say establishing one's own truth would lead more to belief in the supernatural, ridiculous, or impossible rather than away from it. Skepticism is essential for finding truth. A skeptical mind usually also posesses the ability of critical thinking- as long as you don't maintain your skepticism in the face of scientific evidence. Even if truth decay is prevalent in society- try to stay away from it yourself ;-).

What percent of my skepticism is attributable to truth decay? Truth decay is our culture?s move away from absolute truth. Perhaps my truth decay has allowed me to establish ?my own truth? and this stance has allowed me to justify my continued skepticism.
