I have many reasons for being a skeptic. Too many to list here but I thought I'd take the time to share with you the top ten reasons why I became a skeptic.

1. Foaming at the mouth was getting old.
2. I enjoy feeling superior.
3. The other guy has to prove it.
4. I have a deep emotional need to verbally abuse people.
5. I was rejected by Harvard and I'm bitter.
6. It's not my fault that everyone else is an idiot.
7. I can't spell sinikal
8. I don't like the idea of anyone getting satisfaction from their beliefs.
9. Evolution is a fact, dammit!
10. It feels so good when I stop.


So I'm curious. Is it just me or is this pretty standard?

I do not sufffer fools gladly, hehehehe?

Ok. It's fun to shove sticks through foolish spokes. There is a certain melancoly rapsody to be appreciated as the as the ride carrying the deluded soul collapses in a tangle of mined quotes, straw men and plaintive protests of unfairness.

Howzzat?

14. I have enough spare time to waste looking up claims of ghosts, telepathy, and Creationists.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

Alright, scratch mine, filthy's wording is much better.

19. I was rejected by the woo-woo's for being too smart.

19: I never believed people when they said the Evil Atheist Conspiracy was a sect, but now I can't get out anymore.
