Since i was unable to find a specific section for this, I figured this would be the best place to say:

Hey, I'm new here, so I guess I should introduce myself.
I am currently a Senior in High School, but i am interested in learning. Simply learning, i have no area of specific interest, as I consider all forms of knowledge useful, in some way or another.

I will state, however, that I am what is considered a "Free-Thinker", But unlike most teenagers, if not most free-thinkers in general, I still look at certain things and think, "What the heck were these people on?" Although I believe in some pretty abnormal concepts, I still look at things factually and logically.


Simply put:
I am a free-thinker that also implements logical questions and concepts into my beliefs and studies.

I hope to have some nice discussions with people who are interested in discussing the possibilities and impossibilities of both sides.

See you around.
SgtShaeffer

Hi Sarge and welcome to SFN!

Simply put: I am a free-thinker that also implements logical questions and concepts into my beliefs and studies.

I think it was the late Carl Sagan who said to the effect: "let us be open-minded, but not so open that our brains fall out." Words to live by, eh?

Again, welcome, and looking forward to your input.

Thank you, and i hope to hear your opinions, too. Thanks for the quote, by the way, I'd never heard it before, but of course, i don't really pay much attention to quotes, as I try to come to my own beliefs and conclusions, but i guess i really should pay attention more to such things, I will probably learn more that way, haha.

Welcome to SFN, SgtShaeffer!!!

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Yes, welcome to the Skeptic Friends Network.

Hope you don't mind if I move your post to a more-appropriate folder.

Hi, Sarge!

I hope you don't mind me posting this, Kil, but here's a blog/website that contains numerous links that Sarge may be interested in. There's a ton of info out there, and a ton of places to discuss it.

http://depletedcranium.com/

If you think it's work, you're doing it wrong.

No problem. We should probably add that site to our resource section.
