When Skepticism goes too far

Is it possible to be too skeptical?

Too many people are missing a healthy level of skepticism and end up being far too credulous. Ironically, many people that claim to be skeptics end up being so skeptical of some things they end up being overly credulous when they hear stories that seem to counter that which they are skeptical about. Conspiracy theorists, I’m looking at you.

Spiffy Ehward

img_6875The Spiffy Ehwards are THE most highly sought after and prestigious Ehward to be found on the Interwebs. You know this to be true because you just read that it is true.

It comes with no cash award or any other benefits beyond bragging rights, but that is more valuable than any amount of money or silly statue. Winners are encouraged to put it on their resumes as it will almost certainly make you a more appealing candidate to prospective employers.

Nah, just kidding. It’s my unique (& admittedly dorky) way of giving a shout out to people I find amazing. I used to do extensive #FF lists on Twitter but they became so clogged with amazing people that I was spamming the Cultists timelines with 40+ #FF lists. It became unsustainable for me and annoying for many of you. I’d rather draw attention to one specific person at a time. I think it is more personal and meaningful and really forces me to think about who the truly Top Notch Cultists are.

Facts vs. Faith 

Many theists, especially Christians, are fond of touting the value of having faith. Many go so far as to say, “Facts don’t count.” like on this church sign:

The Priests, Pastors, and clergy in general of the Christian faith have always pushed faith as being paramount. I think they do this because they know they don’t have any facts that truly support their claims. I mean, if they did have facts, they’d undoubtedly use them.

Killing them with kindness

This Twitter conversation embodies why I try to remain polite in my online interactions. If this inspires one person to be nicer online, then I will consider this worth my time.

Last week I had an interesting conversation with @NukeTheWha1es (Hereafter to be known as NTW) on Twitter. I had a previous discussion with NTW that same day, but it wasn’t as memorable as this one.

I’ll admit this one started because I was stalking his Timeline looking to see if he was online because if I recall correctly, it seemed he was avoiding answering a question of mine and I wanted to see if he really was, or if he was just offline. I try to do this because nothing irritates me more than having my mentions plugged up with impatient tweets like “Well?”, “No answer?”, “Run away?” When in reality, reality just called and I was unable to be online at that time. Ergo, I try not be annoyingly impatient to others.

An open letter to Jesus Christ

jesus-christ-from-hagia-sophia

Today’s post is inspired by a Twitter thread I did last month. if you want to read it, start here.

Today, I’ve written an open letter to Jesus since he has never gotten back to any of my prayers, yet people keep insisting he’s interested in a “personal relationship” with me.

I’d ask you share this with your friends and family so that hopefully someone that knows him can send him the link.
