Skepticism means requiring proof before belief and going after it passionately and aggressively. Without proof and discovery, we should not believe a thing. We need to teach our children this - don't teach them what to think: teach them HOW TO THINK and to challenge every idea that they happen upon. Applaud and encourage healthy, respectful debate. Without critical thinking we are sheep... stupid sheep... duped sheep... wasting our lives away according to someone else's beliefs. With critical thinking, we increase intellectualism and individuality.
