Chat night has been real great for me. I have come to know the regulars. Dave,Filthy,Cune, and yes boys me, Storm!!! We talked about Dog training, Hitler, Ghosts Sex and Magick I wonder if I would be classified as a skeptic? What do you think? I think that if I did not have some skepticism in me I would not be here!!!
You guys have really helped me in alot of my critical thinking upon my paranormal subjects. But it is not in the way that I must dismiss these phenomenon as non existent. No in fact I am more convinced then ever that Ghosts, PSI, exsist, only they are not in the realm of Parnaormal but normal, not in the realm of the Supernatural, but Natural
Chat nite still on on Sunday with Dr. Mabuse?

Storm, are profess things without providing evidence. You have claimed that since thousands of sites showed up on google, they can't all be wrong. These are not the makings of a skeptic.

You claim to be an expert or authority on ghosts, yet ask us to define what a ghost is to us. You look directly to the paranormal for answers when the normal fits just as well (while claiming at the same time that some are natural). These are also not the makings of a skeptic.

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.

If you want any of the pics with higher resolution, just mail her (her address is on the page), say you're from Skeptic Friends, and what size (pixel and MB) you want the pic, and I'm sure she'll send it...

She'll like the fact that the page counter is ticking.

Gosh, what about me? Of course, I wouldn't be asking if I wasn't a "Hitler like power motivated personality type..."

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Haha, you got that too, Kil?
I was once doing one of those quizzes in a esoteric site, and it IMMEDIATLY associated my personality with Hitler. I had a great load of fun with my friend because of that

I was called that several times by a guy who runs a website selling health gagets and books aimed at removing money from new ager's pocket books. He got angry when I called his site "quack-o-rama." We have exchanged a few emails that will be posted in fan mail, sooner or later, depending on how long the exchange goes on.

His site:

Silly. I can't find the one that told me my personality profile was Hitlerian - it was loads of fun, with runes, tarot and plenty of other things. All online.

Not the ones I've been in... but oddly enough, whenever it's Mab, Kil and I, it somehow floats to things like movies, electronics and ways to annoy people At least last sunday it did (according to the prophesy)...

"But I am not Verlch" is not a compeling argument. It's like when playing basketball and you are told that you suck, so you say, "Ah, but I am not a cripple."

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.

I vote for more chat nite. Although I love the forums. Chat nite is nore laid back. I could actually talk to each of you individually and together. Resposes are much quicker. but I guess if we had more chat nites it might be an indication of that we have no lives
Oh well till Sunday afternoon... More should stop by
