I’d like to welcome a new author to Evolution of Skepticism. This is a good friend of mine, he is a writer about philosophy and atheism. This is a portion of the changes that I spoke about, while this part was a pleasant surprise, I have asked Justin to assist me in performing a podcast. We are both getting our microphones together and hope to start getting the pilot podcast out in the next couple weeks.
More on Justin, as I said before, he is a good friend of mine offline. We know each other from my most recent employer, he is a very active writer on one subject I must say I am fairly weak on, which is philosophy. You can currently read some of his work here.
Please help me welcome Justin to Evolution of Skepticism.
Just wanted to post a quick little update to let everyone know that I haven’t fallen for any silver tongued serpent or went to talk to any burning bushes or anything like that. I am actually putting together a couple of ideas that I look forward to unveiling as soon as I get more information to back it up.
Other than that, just wanted everyone to know that I am using my new found free time wisely. Spending some very needed time with the wife and kid and getting things ready to really take off on a couple of projects. This one and one more which I am VERY excited about… more information to come…
Here is a glimpse into the near future though…
Next week I will be starting on reading one of Scott Cunningham’s published works related to Wicca and being a solitary practitioner. I am intending on bringing a chapter by chapter review.
With this I also intend on bringing a brand new Youtube channel related to this subject matter, I am hoping to bring interviews and reviews related to religious and social skepticism.
More information will come with the youtube channel within the next couple days.
I look forward to the near future,
and as always, question everything.
Hello everyone, welcome to my blog.
This blog isn’t going to move very fast at first, hopefully it will move faster as we progress but for the time being hopefully I can get about one post a week out at the beginning.
My reason for only expecting to post once a week or so is because I want to perform as much research as possible related to the given subject.
Here are my methods to find relevance within the subjects that I will be focusing on:
- Read/Listen to the claim
- Validate the claim through a majority (typically using Internet searches to find others with similar beliefs)
- Inquiry – I will attempt to contact someone that seems to have a firm understanding of the subject in question and ask questions related to my skepticism.
- Find proof of tangible evidence
- If tangible evidence is not obtainable I will attempt to locate solid claims with verifiable proof
Each of these are important by themselves but together in my opinion they create a rock solid case for truth. To get me to completely believe a statement they will have to pass four out of five of these categories. If it passes three, then I will conclude that it is plausible, but not confirmed meaning that more proof would need to be available for a confirmed decision.
